LOS ANGELES, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Oenophiles throughout the United States can set their bookmarks for a new web destination that will fulfill all of their regional Italian wine needs: www.CubeMarketplace.com.  The online gourmet and home retail emporium has added an extensive line-up of boutique Italian reds, whites, rosati, dessert, and sparkling wine to its repertoire of merchandise, and offers complete descriptions and tasting notes, and a registry function, as well as complimentary guidance from their in-house wine concierge who provides individualized pairing suggestions and bottle recommendations based on personal taste and occasion preferences.  

With over 260 bottles to choose from, www.CubeMarketplace.com offers an abundance of must-try selections for any wine aficionado seeking top quality, exotic bottles.  Cube Owner and Wine Director Alex Palermo has sought out the very best wines hailing from all of Italy's 20 regions and weeded through 5,000+ grape varietals to craft a list that offers tremendous history, flavor, and even value.  Prices range from $14 to $69 per bottle, with shipping offered nationally across the United States.

Cube wine staff favorites available for purchase on www.CubeMarketplace.com include 2006 Carpinetti "Dithyrambus" ($38), an organic red wine that strikes a balance between new world and old world style hailing from a tiny vinery nestled in the hills of Lazio;  2005 Gumphof Weissburgunder ($34), a fuller bodied white from northern Italy with notes of grapefruit, fresh spring grass and cantaloupe; and the super-versatile N.V. La Montina Franciacorta Rose Brut ($38), which has a beautiful strawberry fragrance and pairs well with everything from cheese plates to lighter fish dishes.  

Every bottle of wine sold on Cube's website is available for inclusion in shopper's personal gift registries, making CubeMarketplace.com an ideal destination for those seeking to purchase wedding or special occasion presents for wine lovers.  All wines are described in great detail by Cube wine concierge David King (DavidKing@CubeMarketplace.com), who is also available for complimentary individual guidance via email.

Says Palermo, "Living in Italy helped to shape my philosophy that enjoying wine with meals can be an everyday pleasure, not an unattainable luxury.  At Cube, we believe that food and wine menus should be mutually inspiring and that a great meal enjoyed with family and friends evokes true joy and conviviality.  With that in mind, we have crafted a retail list that encourages adventure while assuring practicality for all of our customers."  

All wine available on www.CubeMarketplace.com ships nationally throughout the United States.  Some shipping restrictions apply based on individual state laws.  All bottles available on Cube's website are also available for purchase in their brick-and-mortar cafe and gourmet marketplace located at 615 N.
