I taste a lot of wine. I mean, a LOT of wine OK? And the simple fact that I can still be stopped in my tracks by a heartbreakingly beautiful bottle of wine...well, that's why Monarch exists. This exclusive is from a producer that is no stranger to our shelves, but it is a cuvée that is totally new to South Carolina. Nebbiolo from sandy soils just north of Italy's Piemonte region. The wine is just so soft and lacy and beguiling. Imagine the ethereal, truffle-like qualities of heady Barolo, but without the dense tannic grip. There are so many examples of powerful wines or of impressive wines. But it's these rare, quiet beauties that draw you in and remind you why wine is so magical!
I’m proud to offer the only bottles of 2015 Colombera & Garella Lessona Pizzaguerra in South Carolina! Soft bright red fruits, a beautifully lifted bouquet, and a passing glance of spice all align seamlessly in this wine.
