June 22: Pop the Cork on our New Vintage of Auguri!


We are happy to announce that the latest vintage of our dry sparkling wine Auguri is ready to release.  Made in the classic “zero dosage” or zero residual sugar style and inspired by Prosecco Superiore made in the Lake Garda region in Northern Italy, this is traditionally made in the bottle secondary fermentation which creates a bracing lip-smacking acidity and freshness yet is rather full bodied.

Chianti in the Carolinas Claims 94 points, Platinum at Int'l Winemaker Challenge

Our acclaimed 2022 Sangiovese Classico, honored with the prestigious platinum award, boasting an impressive 94 points and clinching the title of Best Sangiovese in show among entries worldwide at the 2024 Director's Awards at the Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition. Crafted with precision and passion, this exceptional vintage captivates with its unparalleled quality and distinct character, promising an unforgettable journey for wine enthusiasts. Stay tuned as we proudly feature this triumph front and center in our upcoming newsletter, inviting you to savor the excellence of our award-winning creation. Cheers to indulging in greatness.

Sangiovese is the grape used to make Chianti and is notoriously difficult to grow in climates that are not arid. Taking care of this grape is a labor of love and our plantings (lead by a clone called Vino Nobile) produces sensual and soft wines with beautiful aromatics and balance. The grapes are also put through the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate their structure. Finally, we use another Italian technique called Ripasso which utilizes grape skins that have been dried for other wines and “repass” the fresh wine over the skins to further deepen the wine. This wine is light and elegant with plenty of fresh red fruit and floral notes.

Raffaldini Wines Now Available Across NC
 

After nearly two decades of having Raffaldini wines available exclusively at the Villa we have found a wholesale distribution firm that targets wine shops and restaurants rather than mass supermarket, etc. We sought to build connections with independent retailers and restaurateurs so we can still tell our story to the sales outlet and build on the connection that we have with all of you. To begin, we agreed to have two value-based wines (Bella Misto and Bianco) as well as higher end (Vermentino Superiore and Montepulciano Riserva) available for sale. 

To locate a store near you, simply go to raffaldini.com then hover your mouse over shop on the header. When the drop down menu appears, click "Find Raffaldini Wines" at the bottom of the list. Once on the Raffaldini Store Locator, you can use the drop down to search by type or location or type in your zip code and search a radius for outlets near you. If you don’t see your favorite wine shop listed please email me directly at jay@raffaldini.com and I will work with our wholesale partner to get them in the store near you.
