Wines for the Wines
by Jennifer Wine Club:
Tralcetto” Pinot Grigio
thin, twisted bit of cane on the neck of the bottle
is called a tralcetto, the first of which
was picked out from vine prunings by grandmother
Anna and wound around the neck of a bottle of wine
produced by grandson Italo back in 1957, when he
was still a young cellar worker.
Fruit comes from a vast plain of Veneto that is confined
by the Adriatic Sea on the south, the gentle hills
of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano on the northwest, and
the Friuli Venezia Giulia region on the northeast.
Straw yellow color, with intense, lingering aromas
of nutmeg and vanilla, peach and ripe tomato. Dry and
crisp, with flavors of ripe fruit and hints of orange
zest on the lengthy, elegant finish.

Sfida” Aglianico del Vulture
in southern Italy, is an area discussed only very
rarely in wine circles, making it perfect of course
for a Wines by Jennifer Club selection! It features
stunning mountain and hill ranges, and in fact
is one of the most mountainous regions in all of
Italy. Total wine production is very small compared
to the rest of Italy, but the winemaking tradition
dates back over a thousand years.
Aglianico del Vulture is the historic, noble red
wine here, ideal for the soil quality and climate.
Bonifacio is located in the heart of the area, where
for three generations the family has been working
with passion and tradition in order to create this
In their youth, the wines can be rustic with firm,
harsh tannins, but given time, these tannins soften
and a beautiful, rich, silky texture and chocolate-cherry
notes begin to emerge. The wine has consistently
shown the ability to improve in the bottle for 6
- 20 years, which is why we’re excited to present
this outstanding older vintage for you to enjoy with
the “4-Cheese Pizza with Pesto & Sun-Dried Tomatoes”
from our Wines
