3 Outstanding Italian Wines to Give to Your Favorite People

It's the time of year when you need that perfect gift, either for a special boss or a holiday hostess, or maybe even for the three events, I have listed below.  Let the special people in your life know how much they mean to you with a gift of delicious wine.  The wines below will suit many occasions and especially home entertaining.  This list is a holiday gift to you to help you buy wine confidently and to show how much you care.

All these wines can be found wherever Kobrand Wines are distributed.  Kobrand imports & markets a distinguished portfolio of wine and spirits brands. 

For your Secret Santa (no gag gifts here) - Tenuta di Nozzole 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva - $24.99

Whether you’re conducting your Secret Santa get-together in person or virtually, a bottle of wine is a classic holiday present, no matter your level of familiarity with the recipient. The Tenuta di Nozzole 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva is no exception in this regard. A savory Sangiovese at an affordable price, this wine has pleasant aromas of cherry and red berry. As a Riserva, it also undergoes extensive maturation – 24 months in oak barrels and 3 months in bottle to be exact. Any gift-receiver would be ecstatic to get a wine of this caliber.

For someone you want to impress - Tenuta di Biserno 2019 Insoglio del Cinghiale - $42.99

Trying to score a date, win over a boss, or impress an in-law who is skeptical of you? Who among us hasn’t attempted to appeal to the more materialistic side of humanity? The Tenuta di Biserno 2019 Insoglio del Cinghiale is up to the challenge. The blend of this Italian red is diverse: it is comprised of 33% Syrah, 33% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, with most of its grapes coming from the Campo di Sasso estate. This is a wine that deserves to be uncorked alongside a nice dinner – maybe throw in a Porterhouse for good measure.


For meeting the parents for the first time - Tenute Silvio Nardi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino - $83.00

The forecast for this social engagement is similar to the previous situation, yet the stakes are even higher. The first impression you make with your partner’s folks will last throughout the course of your relationship. For this, you should bring out the big guns: a powerful red from a legendary appellation will fit the bill. Like the Chianti Classico Riserva, the Tenute Silvio Nardi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is also made up entirely of Sangiovese, but it takes its aging to another level – 30 months in wood barrels and 12 months in the bottle are required before sending this wine to market. While a firm handshake goes a long way, bringing a bottle of Brunello will push you past the finish line.

Happy Holidays to all!  May you find the Italian wine that is most deserving of your holiday table here and serve it with gusto!
