New Wines now available from Uggiano in Italy:
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new Italian wines to our selections!
We have a fresh Vermentino wine that is native to Italy and offers great variety to any Italian section of a portfolio. Especially refreshing during these hot summer months!
Additionally, we’ve added a new “Super Tuscan” Petraia that is a powerfully bold wine with an amazing value. It’s won several awards over the years.
Both wines have been crowd pleasers during tastings in markets throughout the U.S.!
VERMENTINO – Tuscany (Italy)

VINTAGE NOTES: Before crushing grapes are cooled at 10-12°C for 12- 15 hours to extract many primary aromas from the skins. After this cold maceration process, grapes are pressed and immediately fermented by selected yeasts at low temperature (18-22°C).
