NV Camillo Donati Malvasia Seco ($21)

Hazy and pale orange in color, this dry sparkling white wine from central Italy's Emilia-Romagna region is crisp, incredibly refreshing and full of lively green-apple and citrus flavors.

2007 Movia Lunar ($44)

The most extreme of Slovenian winemaker Ales Kristancic's many extreme wines, this deep-orange-hued Ribolla Gialla is fermented and aged for seven months in barrels buried 30 feet underground. It's minerally and apple-inflected.
