MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS Call 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) • Visit us at • Complimentary delivery on all orders over $150 in NY and CT 71 ITALY Radikon Pinot Grigio 2013 $41 Far from an easy quaff, Radikon's Pinot Grigio is a complex and serious wine that feels more at home with an entrée than an appetizer. These estate vineyards are never treated with chemicals, and Stanko Radikon proudly admits that he makes wine exactly as his grandfather did before him. (1552028) vie di Romans Chardonnay 2013 wS 91 » $39 On a level all its own, Vie di Romans Chardonnay reaches depths of fruit and intensity that most never thought possible. Upon first sip, you might think this is winemaking wizardry, but the team at Vie di Romans assures us that we're tasting Terroir. (1552030) PacherHof Sylvaner Alte Reben 2013 $35 Fans of Alsace and Germany take note; PacherHof is your gateway to Italian wine. The Sylvaner Alte Reben is at once extroverted, elegant and finessed—yet truly rooted in minerals and earth. (1552023) edi Kante vitovska 2012 $39 Within walking distance of Radikon, we find Edi Kanti, who was at one time a pioneer of the Orange Wine movement. Today, he is happy to allow the unique micro-climate of the vineyard to speak through his wines. There's no question about it; they are intense, precise, and capable of maturing for over a decade. (1552017) iTaly's neW par adigM For WhiTe Wine Italy's Northeast has changed the way we think about Italian white wine. W hat was once an industry delivering wine in fish-shaped bottles, produced for immediate consumption, is now a booming artisanal renaissance, calling on ancient methods and nearly extinct varietals. Biodynamics in the vineyards, extended skin contact during fermentation and aging regimens in the cellar that recall Roman times are just the tip of the iceberg. Some people question their methods, but no one questions the quality and diversity of their wines. ✦
