Maryland's Premiere Women's Wine Tasting Club




Best in Show

Cantine Menhir “Fine” Negroamaro 2010, Salento $33.99
(Only $28.89 with GoGo discount)

This wine is SO fine!  Composed entirely of the region’s indigenous Negroamaro, Menhir’s Fine is powerful and palate coating with spicy aromas and flavors.  Red and dark berries mingle with touches of cocoa before a warm, structured finish wraps things up.  It shows the more seductive side of a typically dark and bitter varietal.  Drink by itself or try with roasted meat dishes.


Caruso and Minini “Terre di Giumara” Nero d’Avola 2011, Sicily $15.99
(Only $13.59 with GoGo discount)

Nero d’Avola is one of Sicily’s most important native varietals, making medium to full-bodied wines with bold fruit characteristics. This little guy is a great example of how downright enjoyable this grape can be! Notes of violets and rich dark fruit are accented by hints of mint and cocoa, then balanced by moderate tannin.  This could be your new pizza night wine!

Best Bargain

Odoardi “Savuto” 2012, Calabria $12.99
(Only $11.04 with GoGo discount)

The family has been farming the land in Calabria’s Cosenza and Catanzaro provinces for hundreds of years and their careful tending of the vineyards pays dividends in this brilliant bargain!  A blend led by the native Gaglioppo, expect red fruit, plums, tobacco, mint, truffles and pepper with a juicy, satisfying finish.


Most Interesting

Cantine Menhir “Albanegra” 2012, Salento $20.99
(Only $17.84 with GoGo discount)

All of the grapes in this blend were harvested on a day when the sun didn’t rise in the region in 2012 and kept separate from the other lots to make this unique, one-off wine!  Distinct and character driven, this trio of Primitivo, Malvasia and Aleatico sports aromas of wild strawberries, laurel, thyme and exotic spices.  The palate is satiny with bitter chocolate, macerated cherries and finely textured tannins.


Sip by sip, month by month: We'll decide this wine tasting business one exciting grape at a time!
