At the Bar
We’re tasting some of our favorite Italian gems Sunday at the bar. Come on by and say hello from 1 to 4!
2016 Bonotto delle Tezze Pinot Grigio, IGT
On Sale $11.99
Tropical fruits and banana peel on the nose. The wine has nice mineral content and is perfectly dry as it comes from Veneto, one of Italy’s sweet spots for Pinot Grigio! Fruity and supple, with a savory touch to its apple and pear flavors.
Multi-Vintage Manicardi “Fabula” Brut Rose, Lambrusco di Sorbara DOCG
On Sale $16.99
From the culinary Mecca of the world, in the heart of Modena where the great Balsamic hails from. A blend of Lambrusco and Pignoletto with one day of skin contact. Like a dry strawberry patch in your mouth. Like a light red wine perfect with salty meats and cheeses.
2015 Benanti, Etna Rosso DOC
On Sale $22.99
Lovely bright dark red color. Slightly reticent aromas of red cherry, rosehip, raspberry and minerals. Then lively and balanced, with juicy red berry and sweet spice flavors. Finishes with bright acidity and rising but polished tannins. An outstanding Etna Rosso; not the last word in concentration or complexity but grows on you on the finish. A blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio that clocks in at a well balanced 13% alcohol.
