Vinissimo © ...not all wines are created equal
"You don't have to be an oenophile to appreciate some of Italy's and Spain's finest wines.
Enter Vinissimo Estate Selection, an importer that supplies the likes of Mozza, Campanile and Barbrix, not to mention top restaurants in San Francisco, New York and beyond.
The bar is set incredibly high to join the Vinissimo© portfolio: it takes three years of tasting for quality and consistency before a producer makes the cut, and if a vintage falls short one year down the road, it's out.
The wine gurus at Vinissimo© have personal relationships with every producer, have visited every vineyard and have the photos to prove it.
This is hand-crafted wine of the highest quality, so don't expect to recognize the labels (unless, of course, you've had a glass at a local restaurant) and you certainly won't find these bottles at your local wine store.
Sounds expensive, right?
Not necessarily. Bottles start around $15 and go to more than $100, with plenty in between."

"We don't import fame, fashion, price or Parker points, wine colors, profit margins, ratings, vintages, styles, reviews, lifestyle, faux pas boutique (bulk passed off as "small production") or "give-them-what-they-want" (importer's cuvees) wines.
** We introduced the first authentic Lambrusco in the USA in 1994, the first Gutturnio, Lagrein, Schiava, Cesanese, Vitovska, Malvasia Istriana, Colli di Luni Vermentino, cru Sangiovese from Romagna (as in Emilia-Romagna), and made Pigato famous.
