The pepper, spice and mountain berries on the nose of this wine—crafted by an amazing family—transports me to the Alps where it was born.
Why to buy: One of Italy’s best wineries, Les Crêtes produces gorgeous wines that are sought out by serious wine collectors. The Charrere family has a mantra to make wines that well represent the cool, steeply sloped, rocky Alps of the Valle d’Aosta region of Italy. They've accomplished just that with this peppery, smoky, berry-rich Syrah. Nuanced, balanced and charming in an old-world kind of way, this elegant wine comes from their stunning Coteau La Tour vineyard. It’s delicious with roasted meats like lamb, pork and even game.
