Why you should buy: These two incredible wines, a white that descends from the very first Gavi di Gavi to break a 90 point score in Wine Spectator, and a dazzling, spicy Austrian red, are packaged in half-bottles, perfectly pint-sized for toting to a picnic or BBQ. This summer season, don't bring just one bottle to a party; surprise your host with two halves.
Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi 2010: Layers of floral and peach on the nose of this wine are also on the palate with a hint of pear, lemon and minerally stone. This bottle has a nod from Ina Garten – that goddess of summertime Hampton's entertaining – for it’s full-bodied, smooth texture that’s dynamite with dishes like pesto shrimp or linguine with clams.
IBY Blaufrankisch Classic 2010: Hardcore old-vine Zinfandel lovers, this wine is for you. Layered with brown spice and berries, showing bright acidity and soft tannins, we love it with authentic BBQ, or grilled pork chops topped with a fruit compote.
