• Casale del Giglio from Lazio in Bothell on 6/8

    Friday the 8th at 4pm
    Someone gave me a bottle of the Casale del Giglio some time ago but was never able to find it with any of my importers until now. Normally I wouldn't want anything to do with the area of Lazio because their soccer team is my teams rival but since this is about wine...I'll let is slide.

    I do like the Lazio wine region so this will be a treat for me and for you.

    2016 Casale del Giglio Blanco - Deep yellow flecked with gold.
    The wine evokes sunshine and ripe tropical fruit such as mango and papaya, carefully balanced by a marked acidity which makes it suitable for long bottle aging. Rich, ample and lingering on the palate with light floral and spicy notes. Hallmarked by its pronounced acidity and zesty tang. A long finish.

    2015 Casale del Giglio Petit Manseng - Brilliantly straw-yellow in colour, the wine is intensely aromatic, fruity and spicy on the nose, fresh, crisp and flinty on the palate. An exquisitely structured wine which bows out on a seductive, fruit-filled finish.

    2017 Casale del Giglio Satrico - A bright straw-yellow, this elegant blend reveals a fruity, lightly aromatic yet mineral nose, confirmed on the palate by a pleasing crispness and a lengthy finish.

    2016 Casale del Giglio Cesanese Rosso - Deep ruby red. Intense aromas of marasca cherry, typical of late varieties, followed by spicy notes of white pepper, black pepper and violet.
    The mouthfeel is soft, with persistent tannins and pronounced acidity, essential criteria for long aging.

    2015 Casale del Giglio Petit Verdot - This deep crimson wine displays an intense, lingering aroma of red berry fruit, cherry, myrtle and juniper. Elegant and full-bodied, with rich velvety tannins, the wine presents a spicy, white peppery finish.

    And get this...nothing over $20!!! These wines are perfect for the Spring/Summer time and right into the Fall.
