• Brunello di Montalcino w/ Riserva on March 4th

    March 4th at 3pm
    $5 tasting fee unless you're in one of our wine clubs
    Well people it's time to get back to some serious Sangiovese and I see no reason why you shouldn't try some Brunello! With ver a dozen Brunello di Montalcino in the shop at all times, this is a rare chace for you to taste before you buy. While others might taste you on some mass-produced Brunello...I can't do that. I want you to look deep into the glass and smell the difference, taste the purity and understand what comes from the dirt to your palate...perfection. These are wines that will age for over 15 years or longer. Let's dive right in!

    2009 Podere San Giacomo Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
    Notes: The varied and expansive nose of this estate bottled Brunello hints at berries, spices and vanilla. Full-bodied and dry yet warm with a taste that has length, Podere San Giacomo’s Brunello has an aging potential of 15-30 years.

    2009 Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
    Notes: From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Giovanna Ciacci’s 2009 Brunello di Montalcino impresses with its dark garnet color and its loaded fruit concentration. The aromas show signs of immediate evolution with dried fruit and bramble but the wine does a lovely job of framing more delicate nuances of smoke, licorice and crushed granite as well. The finish shows a fine texture and polished tannins…

    2011 Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
    Notes: Nothing exemplifies the open-knit, open-for-business, and drinkable style of the 2011 vintage in Brunello di Montalcino than this wine. Poached, brandied cherries, tobacco, cocoa, lawdy, all the musicians are assembled for this one. It's supple, elegant, and as forward as an Italian sailor on shore leave. It's so delicious now, why wait?

    2010 Sasa Puro Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
    Notes: This dry, warm and well-balanced Brunello presents an intense garnet color with shades of orange. The penetrating bouquet has a soft inkling of fruit, spice and vanilla. Stylish and elegant, this is Sangiovese at its best. 

    2010 Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG
    Notes: Coffee and chocolate aromas signal this exotic and fragrant red. The cherry and plum notes are almost afterthoughts, while spice, leather and tobacco flavors come to the fore, with vivid acidity through the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 3,300 cases made.

    As you can see...this Saturday is not a tasting to miss!
