The aspirations of Dalla Terra’s founder, Brian Larky, shifted from being a winemaker to becoming an importer of Italian wines after a harvest job in Italy that stretched into five years working as a winemaker for the sparkling wine producer Ca’ del Bosco in Lombardy’s Franciacorta region. Dalla Terra Winery Direct is an importer of a small and select group of leading, family-owned wineries in Italy.The estates they represent are terroir-driven icons not only of each province or region, but of Italy as a whole. Italian-focused from the very beginning, Dalla Terra pioneered a unique approach to bringing wines from Italy to the U.S. market. This model removes the import bottleneck and reduces the price of high quality and delicious wines to consumers.

The wines selected for this tasting include a variety of styles, grapes and Italian regions – essentially some of the best of Italian wine in 5 glasses. If you avoided Lambrusco since that syrupy sweet wine freshman year, this refreshing dry Lambrusco will be a treat. The Pinot Grigio and Vermentino are ready for summer and show why, at their best, they are two of our favorite Italian white wines. Brunello and Barolo are all about the interplay of elegance and tradition in current Italian wine making. Vietti believed that the 2018 Nebbiolo, used for the 2018 Barolo, was the finest crop of their 2018 harvest. 

The featured flight will include the following Wines:

  • Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco del Fondatore, Lambrusco di Sorbara Metodo Ancestrale DOC 2020 Bottle $21
  • Russiz Superiore Pinot Grigio Collio DOC 2019 Bottle $28.50
