Italian Wine Tasting – November 21st – 5pm – 8pm

Abruzzo – Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo DOCCantina Colle Moro Montepulciano Rosé 2012 – 10.57 – Dry, cherry fruit, pretty… Lots of fruit and juicy acidity. Refreshing. Bright strawberry fruit and clean spice. A style of wine that we love, from the hills of Guastameroli di Frisa, founded in 1961. Great clean fruit, dusty & light tannins/ tangy, pie cherry, red fruited, minerality coming through. A fruity rosé that’s unoaked to emphasize the fresh, red, berried aromas. Dry and fresh and a great wine to pair with hors d’oeuvres–especially fish-based starters.

Abruzzo – Cantina Colle Moro Club Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOP 2012 – 9.97 – Pure Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Generally late harvesting with medium long on-the-skin maceration, storage in lined cement tanks where the malolactic fermentation takes place. Refining:In stainless steel cisterns. Bouquet: Delicately vinous, fruity with hints of ripe red fruit. Taste:Dry, rounded, tangy, slightly tannic. Food pairings: It matches white and red meat roasts, stewed meat and game.

Piedmont – Stefano Farina Nebbiolo d’Alba 2010 – 16.97 – An earthy version of Piemonte’s premier grape. Flavors of raspberry, plum and red currant. A softer, more accessible incarnation. Light-bodied, cherry red ripe fruit with undertones of sage and mushroom. Pair it with pizza, mushroom risotto, or a plate of aged cheeses & fruit.

Piedmont – Il Chiosso Gattinara DOCG Nebbiolo 2007 – 19.97 (average $31) – Taste: very structured, harmonious, very persistent, with a pleasantly bitter (mineral) aftertaste. Intense notes of fresh fruit with an undertone of balsamic and spices. Excellent structure with soft, balanced tannins. This wine goes perfectly with roast or boiled meat, red meat, seasoned cheese. 25 to 30 year old vines, fermented in stainless steel, three weeks fermentation and maceration, then 3 years in large oak barrels, followed by 9 months in bottle before release.

Free Askari Tasting – Spanish Wines – Friday, November 14th – 5pm – 8pm -

AskariFrancesc Ricart Cava Brut NV – 14.57 – Respects the essence of a traditional brut as it is aged in the bottle for 14 months, but is still maintains its freshness making it an easy-drinking & enjoyable wine. Xarel-lo, Macabeo & Perellada. Nice package. Floral, citrusy (tangerine), clean & pretty. Fresh, softer acid. Like it. Friendly. From Almansa, Spain. Light color, floral nose, great balance.

2012 La Garnacha Salvaje del Moncayo Ribera del Quelies – 11.97 – Organic vineyard on the slopes of the Moncayo end of the Ebro Valley (Ribera del Queiles, Northern Spain). From over 55 year-old vines. Slatey soils rich in pebbles & very low temperatures in winter. A fruity & fresh wine that has sweet tannins. Now is exactly the right time for these Garnachas to start delivering their best. Aged for 5 months in new French oak barrels.

2013 Matsu El Picaro BD – 14.57 – Picaro means ‘rogue’ or ‘rascal’. Tinto de Toro (Tempranillo). The grapes come from mature vines 80 to 100 years old, but the wine spends only three months in oak, preserving their natural fruit profile. Aromas of ripe blackberries & raspberries, with subtle hints of fresh cocoa. The palate is bold yet supple, with ripe tannins & a mineral grip. Intense aroma with black fruits prevailing over red fruits. Mineral notes are also noticed, thus creating a fresh but complex wine. This wine is full-bodied yet leaves, at the same time, sweet & pleasant sensations provided by the ripe grapes.

Castillo de Maetierra Libalis Melante 2008 – 500 ml – 15.97 – “It is a velvety, silky, thick wine, but fresh at the same time. It is a wine born from the best grapes in Maetierra, the most mature grapes, those that remain the longest period on the vines, are bronzed, healthier & sweeter. It is our sweet wine, our dessert wine. It is the wine that best expresses the potential of the Muscat à Petits Grains variety. Tropical fruit. Muscat à Petits Grains is considered the most aromatic variety in the world, & it is also a variety from la Rioja. Cultivation had been abandoned in the early 19th century with the arrival of the phylloxera disease. Intense aromas of ripe fruit, honey & orange peel on the nose. In the mouth it is full-flavored & dense, with hints of nuts & a perfect balance between sweetness & acidity.”
