December Deal #2
"La Mannella is an impressively-made Rosso from the Cortonesi family. Vibrant and focused with a fresh fruit core, earthy nuances, refined tannins, and beautiful freshness, this wine is begging to be opened and enjoyed today! Wine Advocate praises third generation winemaker Tommaso Cortonesi on producing a “very satisfying Rosso that drinks and performs above its weight class.” We couldn’t agree more! The fact that we can sell this wine for under $15 makes it, hands down, one the best deals of the year! At this unbeatably low price, scoop this one up by the case and relish in the luscious deliciousness this Rosso has to offer as long as you can."
- Staff Note
“Cortonesi makes a very satisfying Rosso that drinks and performs above its weight class. There is plenty of dark cherry and fresh fruit at its core. That center is framed by earthy notes of iris root and chestnut husk. All of those flavors conclude with pretty freshness.”

“Attractive aromas of ripe cherries, dried orange peel, dried flowers and walnuts. Medium-bodied, structured and polished with fine tannins and juicy acidity. Balanced and even with a lengthy, mineral finish."
