Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

This extraordinary and elegant white is made from hand picked Pinot Nero grapes vinified as a white wine by removing the dark skins, in a similar fashion to the production of Champagne from red Pinot Noir grapes. It is richly intense, well balanced with elegance and powerful fruit finishing long and complex backed by firm acidity.
Sillery is Pinot Noir Blanc–meaning that this is white wine produced from red grapes. The only place where this is common is in Champagne. It tastes like Blanc de Noir Champagne without the bubbles. Yes, it is refined and extremely drinkable, and not to mention, absolutely delicious.
Frecciarossa, who recently celebrated their 100th birthday, are one of the masters of Pinot Noir in Italy. The quality here should justify a much higher price point. This vinous masterpiece promises to blow you away, whether drinking now or over next handful of years. Drink luxury for under $23 (with complimentary delivery).

Located 100km south of Milan, this area produces primarily Pinot Nero (aka Pinot Noir). The Oltrepò is often overlooked by tourists and wine lovers in favour of more famous locations like Tuscany and - as a result - is quietly beautiful, remarkably authentic, and thankfully untouched.
'Frecciarossa' is located amidst some of the prettiest wine landscape anywhere in the world. Much of Lombardy's wine country is breathtaking. They are one of the greatest and oldest producers in Northern Italy, tracing their roots back to the 18th century.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
