Macon has an aromatic nose with notes of acacia flowers, hawthorn and grapefruit. In the mouth, these fruity notes are repeated accompanied by a round mouthfeel and good structure. Pair with fish, shellfish, or chicken with cream.

Kendal's Pick!

Marchetti Verdicchio 2013 $20.75 Full-bodied and off-dry. It is deftly made, with lush pear, melon, and a touch of honey complexion that retains beautiful acidity. Pair with salmon, sea bass, sushi, clams, light pasta, or pork.

John's Pick!

Abbazia di Novacella Lagrein 2012 $17.99 Intensely deep in color, almost black tinged with purple. Very open on the nose with concentrated aromas of violets, blackberries and black cherries all meshed with savory flavors, coffee and dark chocolate; supple youthful tannins and superb length.

Andy's Pick!

Tami "Everyday" Nero D'Avola 2013 $18.99 Nero D’Avola is usually made in a dark and rustic style, but this offering is a little lighter and brighter than most. Big smooth tannins from the skins lend just enough weight to make this a perfect pair for grilled tuna steaks or stewy eggplant dishes.

  Staff Pick!

Natalino "Anne" Negroamaro 2013 $17.99 Ripe fruits on the nose. Spiced and extracted purple fruits.  Plum skin, cocoa, and cracked pepper.  Red fruits emerge. The wine is young and forward and delicious. Pair with antipasto, grilled lamb, or grilled tuna.
