(96-100) Points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
A magnificent Insignia that will be bottled in several months, it boasts an opaque puple color as well as fabulous notes of graphite, blackberries, black currant liqueur, camphor, barbecue smoke and spice box. Rich, full-bodied and opulent with plenty of tannin and structure lurking beneath the extravagant generosity of fruit, this stunning 2012 should drink well for 25-30+ years.
Wines and More Wines
Although Little Italy specializes in Italian wines, we are far from just an Italian wine store. We carry wines from all over the world. We have a great selection of wines from France, Spain, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, Chile, and of course the US. We have many Port wines and other dessert wines such as late harvest and "Icewines".
As time goes on, we will update this page with more specific information. Please feel free to call my cell phone at 440-292-6985 if you have any questions. Special orders are welcome.....

Wines of all Sorts
We have a great selection of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Sirah, Pinot Noir, and many Blends and specialty wines. We have Chardonnay, Savignon Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurtztraminer.
We have French Vouvray, Sancerre, White and Red Bordeaux and Burgundies.
Sparkling and Rose Wines
We also have a great selection of Sparkling wines from the US, France, Spain and Italy.
Rose wines will be in very soon. These (mostly dry) summery wines are a great alternative to the heavier wines as the weather heats up.
12 Under $12
We have a designated $12 under $12 section with great bargain selections from all over. This section changes frequently as we discover new "affordable" options.
We also have a closeout section of wines at 50% off of their original price. These are wines that we are discontinuing for various reasons. Some are not available anymore, while some are older vintages. Others just plain didn't sell well for one reason or another. All are great values.
