It’s a perfect match for duck and game meats. Back to Green Wines » Todd Coleman Cennatoio Chianti Classico 2009 This is a wine with remarkable depth of flavor: blackberry, a good dose of spicy black pepper, and well-structured oaky tannins and minerals. Pair this certified-organic powerhouse from the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti region with your most robust and meaty Italian dishes. Back to Green Wines » Todd Coleman Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay 2008 Racy but graceful, with flavors of orange blossom and lime along with a trace of slate minerality, this certified-organic and -biodynamic wine is not for lovers of Napa Valley’s classic butterscotch chardonnay; it’s for those who enjoy structure, vibrancy, and acidity all at once. It’s lovely with butter-poached seafood. Back to Green Wines » Hirsch Veltliner #1 Gruner Veltliner 2010 With nectarine, mineral, and ginger notes, this luscious, spicy Austrian white is made from that country’s native gruner veltliner grape by an award-winning biodynamic producer. Served with poultry or a classic wiener schnitzel, it will please both wine drinkers who crave structure and those who like prettiness. Todd Coleman Mas Carlot Costieres de Nimes Les Enfants Terribles 2009 Grown organically in the southern part of France’s Rhone Valley, this rustic, muscular mourvedre-syrah blend displays notes of tobacco and black cherry. It’s well suited to homespun, hearty dishes like pot roast and beef stew.
