- Moscato d’Asti
DOCG has been produced in the Monferrato area of Piedmont
since the 13th century. Straw yellow color with golden hues.
Pleasantly sweet, with fragrant aromas of peach, orange blossoms
and acacia flowers, with hints of sage and citrus fruits.
Flavors of fresh white stone fruit linger on the palate.
Wonderful as an aperitif, or try it with the “Dannon Muffins”
from our Wines
by Jennifer® Cookbook!
- Located in the
heart of Portugal’s Vinho Verde wine region, this family-owned
winery has been making wines since 1870. This estate-grown
blend of Loureiro (80%) and Alvarinho (20%)
is bright and juicy in the mouth. Stone fruit flavors underlay
floral scents of green fig and white grapefruit. Its maritime
freshness will pair well with shrimp and asparagus.
- The blend for this
vibrant wine from the southwest of France is Columbard, Gros
Manseng, and Ugni Blanc. These are white grapes from the
Côtes de Gascogne district that historically would
have been used for distillation into Armagnac. This wine
has a bright acidity punctuated by an herbal and tropical
fruit character that will keep you coming back for more!
- Chianti Classico
is the heartland of the Chianti wine region. It is the oldest
and most traditional viticultural area where the blend by
DOCG law must be a minimum of 80% Sangiovese. Riserva indicates
the wine has spent a minimum of 24 months aging, of which
three months must be in the bottle. Dark and fruit-forward,
with a beautiful profile of ripe, succulent cherry fruit,
it’s Tuscan sunshine in a bottle!
- The Spanish often
say, "Rioja is the king of Spain and Tempranillo is
the king of Rioja.” This impressive Tempranillo blend shows
ripe cherry and blackcurrant on the nose and in the mouth.
Excellent texture, with good heft and energy, it finishes
smooth and sweet, with fine-grained tannins providing strength
- Bordeaux Superieur
is a designation given to wines that have slightly more stringent
production regulations than generic Bordeaux. They tend to
come from older vines with lower yields, and spend more time
aging before release. This traditional Bordeaux blend of
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc was aged for
12 months in 30% new oak. Smooth yet robust, with abundant
dark blackberry and spice notes.
