• Marco w/ Firriato Wines Comes to Town on 5/5

    May 5th at 3pm
    Four months ago Marco came to town with Firriato wines and it was a sell out! When I mean sell out, I mean there was nothing left and I closed the store an hr and half early. Now...He's coming back for round II and lets see what gems he's pulling out this time. Also, we'll have Katie with us so you know shit's gonna get REAL!!

    Here we go...

    2016 Firriato Jasmin Zibibbo - This is a wine of purity and charm. Aromatic with floral and sweet spices followed by volcanic and salty minerality on the palate. It is a pleasure to drink, especially with sharp cheeses, seafood crudos, or any vegetarian appetizers. Run by a young couple, Firriato is a Sicilian powerhouse.

    2016 Firriato Altavilla Grillo - Aromatic, with orange blossom and spice notes, offering flavors of pink grapefruit granita and Thai basil. Light-bodied and fresh, presenting a citrusy finish.

    2015 Feudi Branciforti dei Bordonaro Merlot - Deep intense ruby red color. This wine made from Merlot grapes, has a Mediterrenean style and a bouquet that reminds soft balsamic notes and small red fruits. Rich and determined on the palate, its tannins are soft and velvety.

    2015 Firriato 'Chiaramonte' Nero d’Avola - Intense ruby red with Intense fruity notes of plum, blackberry, cherry and blueberry with hints of cloves, black pepper, licorice and chocolate. Soft and powerful with silky tannins and fruity finish.

    2011 Firmato Santagostino Baglio Soria - Aromas and flavors of bacon fat and mesquite smoke mix with ripe black cherry, licorice snap, mocha and mint in this expressive red, with fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity. Elegant through to the aromatic, coffee-tinged finish. Nero d'Avola and Syrah.

    2013 Firriato Harmonium Nero d’Avola - A pure note of black cherry and hints of eucalyptus and chocolate pudding are underscored by a subtle streak of spicy minerality in this sculpted red. Medium- to full-bodied, with a fresh, lingering finish.

    As you can see...we aren't screwing around here people. Come early but don't come late...all will be gone like last time.
