  • Scacciadiavoli in Bothell on 4/20 at 4pm

    Our young intern will be working with us at the shop on Friday plus I've told her she can run the tasting herself. She's been studying up on wines from Italy and I think she has the chops to talk to you all about Scacciadiavoli. Being that she's been in the wine industry since she was born...I know she won't steer you wrong.

    Here's what the kid has decided...

    2016 Scacciadiavoli Grechetto dell’Umbria - dry white wine that presents a range of lively aromas, both in the bouquet and in the mouth. Sweet fruit, white and yellow flowers and a fresh acidity keep the wine alive and persistent. At the right temperature it is the perfect accompaniment during hot summer days, as well as all year long with soups and pastas, or light main courses.

    2015 Scacciadiavoli Rosso di Montefalco - With spicy undergrowth aromas and a ripe juicy palate, this wine gets its distinctive, powerful structured flavour from the slightly wild sagrantino grape of Umbria, Italy, blended with sangiovese.

    2010 Scacciadiavoli Sagrantino di Montefalco - This is very polished and refined with polished tannins and a fruity finish. Full body and bright acidity.

    Now I will also be pouring one of our new 2017 Rosé as well so that's a little bonus for you.
