Whats In Store?
The Tasting will consist of 5 wines. Here are some words to tempt your taste buds. To actually tatste them you'll have to stop by the store. We've even included perfect food pairings for some of them.
Si’ Soave Italian White (cool bottle sample)
Soave- soft, yielding mouthfeel and notes of spring flower and stone fruit. Red and yellow soils that add a dry sensation of minerality. Soave offers a naturally rich consistency and freshness that is never too biting or acidic.
Cembra Pinot Grigio from Italy
The Pinot Grigio grape has been grown in Trentino for decades. In the terraced vineyards of the Cembra Valley it acquires the characteristics of minerality, verticality and freshness typical of upland cultivation. It presents a brilliant golden color and an elegant varietal aroma of ripe fruit with hints of pear and yellow peach. On the palate it is refined, harmonious and well balanced, with distinctive minerality and a return of ripe fruit.
Macizo Italian White Table Wine
Macizo-Fifty percent Garnacha and 50 percent Xarello from head-trained vines from the El Pou, Vinya Petita and La Font de Cinera vineyards carried in 16 kg boxes to keep the integrity of the fruit intact. The grapes were destemmed, crushed and macerated on the skins for eighteen hours in stainless steel to pull out maximum aromatic potential and then moved to barrels to finish fermentation. The wine was aged for eight months on the fine lees in new 300 L French oak. No malolactic conversion. Fined and filtered. The skin maceration results in pronounced aromatics of white peach and dried apricot and on the palate, manifests itself as passion fruit, grassy mango combined with the silky texture and spicy finish of cold-pressed EVOO.
