Pesce

Vino Bianco

Garganega

This impeccable white comes from around the area of Soave, known for their beautiful castle. Not far from Verona, this area is home to an important white grape called Garganega. The Pesce wine, from this grape, is full of ripe stone fruits like peach and apricot followed by Meyer lemon. A round full texture offers up a refreshingly balanced finish that is easy and refreshing.

POINTS OF INTEREST

This area of northern Italy is about halfway between Milan and Venice and makes for a great stop to see the castle and to tour the nearby city of Verona (Romeo and Juliet). The local grape, Garganega, pronounce (gar- GAHN-neh-gah) is grown on volcanic soils mixed with clay. It is one of the most beloved and important white grapes in all of Italy. After one taste we think you will understand why we love it so much.

Carne

Vino Rosso

45% Nero di Troia, 30% Primitivo, 25% Nero d’Avola

Southern Italy doesn't have as many fancy regions as the north, but what you will find here are friendly wines that are juicy and approachable, intended to be enjoyed on a regular basis. The Carne has soft, dark red fruits of plum, cherry, and blackberry with undertones of tobacco and warm spice. Easy on the palate, it is medium bodied with soft tannins and a classic, dry Italy finish.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The pleasure of drinking wine in the small, family owned, markets and local restaurants of Italy cannot be overstated. In beautiful villages, in the moment, nothing seems better. And it is so affordable! The simple glasses or carafes of red or white wine, served with local comfort foods, was the inspiration behind the Mercato project. We thought a fun label and name would capture the endearing quality of these moments.
