Our May 2021 Wine Club offering

The Montecucco appellation sits just south of Montalcino, in the northern reaches of the Maremma, where it benefits from some of the geology and climate that make Brunello di Montalcino one of Italy’s most prized appellations while costing a fraction as much.

Parmoleto, like most of the wineries we work with, is a family affair. Originally a typical diversified small farm producing pigs, olives, wine, and chickens, over time they expanded the vineyards and established an agriturismo, and Leonardo has shown serious talent as a winemaker. His taste and methods are old school, and his wines have the classic flavor profiles of the famous Super Tuscans that revolutionized the region a few decades ago.

The Carabatto is 100 percent vermentino, a neat balancing act of racy acidity, plentiful fruit — especially citrus, pear, and nectarine — and the elegant minerality that the region is famous for. This is a quaffable aperitivo, or a handsome companion to seafood, pasta, or poultry. If possible, drink this outside on a perfect spring evening.

Sormonno is a blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon, sometimes with a small percentage of syrah added. It’s Leonardo’s version of a Super Tuscan, and as such it delivers layers of fruit, spice, animal, and earth during its long finish. Open it a few hours before dinner, or decant it if you’re feeling fancy, and pair it with meaty fare from the grill or mushroomy pastas.

To accompany this duo, we’re enclosing a wedge of our pecorino stagionato. Shave it thin for a snack with the Carabatto, or grate it into some bucatini all’amatriciana and pop the Sormonno. Also, as a special treat this time around, we’re including a jar of maple syrup made by our dear friend Lukas Longtin. Lukas helps out with our Saturday night dinners, so you may already have met him. This is the real, small-batch artisanal stuff. Enjoy!

Dancing Ewe Wines

When we started hosting meals at the farm, we were well equipped with world-class ingredients, specifically our own salumi and cheeses plus the olive oil and other products we import from Tuscany. But the wines we served didn’t fit; they didn’t have the same quality and sense of place that we had grown accustomed to during our time in Italy. The only solution was to begin importing the wines we love! So now we share our favorite bottles with our guests at the farm as well as our online customers.

The wines we import are all handmade by small farmers we know personally. They are our friends and neighbors; we know their families, their vineyards and their stories, and we love their wines. All the wineries we work with follow sustainable practices in both field and cellar, and you can taste the difference, because caring for the soil and respecting the larger ecosystem produces the best fruit. And that fruit gets transformed into wine without the chemical interventions that are all too common in the industry. Each bottle we sell is a pure, unadulterated encapsulation of a particular vineyard in a given year, with nothing added and nothing taken away.

We’d love for you to come enjoy the fruits of these talented artisans’ labor with us at a farm dinner. Our website also offers easy online ordering and fast shipping, so you can open these special bottles of lovingly preserved Italian sunshine to enliven any meal from a weeknight dinner to a celebratory feast. Our wine club offers monthly boxes of wine paired with cheese, salumi, and other treats, or you can put together your own assortment for yourselves or for a delicious gift. Whatever you choose, we’re proud to share these beautiful wines with you.
