Langhe Nebbiolo - a bright and modern red
Manero Red – A perfect everyday drinking wine- on sale for $10!
First up is a delicious red from Fattoria del Cerro. The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is highly-rated across the board. Ripe, flashy, and opulent, it’s a great showpiece wine to bring to impress your in-laws. It has a fragrant, fruity aroma, but its flavor profile has surprising hints of mushroom and earth. If you’re having a dish with meat and mushrooms, this wine is the perfect pairing!
Next up is a slightly more modern, spicy red from Produttori del Barbaresco. It’s lean and clean, with bright fruit flavors sharpened by pepper and anise. Snag a bottle to spice up a delicious pizza pie for a high-low date night!
Next up is a kinder, gentler red: the 2014 Manero. It begins with floral and citrus aromas that develop into a full body with a savory finish. A really delicious wine, rated 93 points by reviewer James Suckling. On sale for $10, so snag a case!
Next up, we have another deep, earthy, mushroomy red. The Malma malbec is earthy and savory, yet also has a full body and juicy flavors. Wine reviewer James Suckling recommends drinking it now, and for $11 a bottle, you can’t miss it!
Finally, we have a great Italian white, the Greco di Tufo. Rated a whopping 95 points, It’s the perfect wine for spring! It has layered flavors of honey, dried lemon, and apples. Don’t let these sweet-sounding flavors deter you – this wine is very rich and deep with a long finish! A total steal at $17 a bottle!
We hope to see you Saturday from 3-6 for our free tasting! If you can’t make it, you can always shop our weekly specials online!
