• Villa da Filicaja in Bothell on 9/7

    Friday at 4pm till 7pm
    This Friday we'll be taking a tripe to Montaione Italy to visit one of my favorite producers in all of Italy. All of their wines are truly amazing. They only make four wines of which we'll be tasting all four wines. Imported via Chloe Wines so you know you're getting some serious stuff.

    In the beautiful setting of the Tuscan countryside, the Filicaja family have been making fine wines since 1452. During the past five hundred years the Filicaja family have added small innovations and improvements developed through experience year after year, century after century and generation after generation.

    2014 Villa da Filicaja Fonte Bianco IGT - A fruity white, with fresh lemon and melon character. Medium-bodied, fresh and forward with a fruity finish. Blend of Chardonnay (50%) Trebbiano (50%).

    2015 Villa da Filicaja Chianti Superiore DOCG - A ripe, savory style, featuring plum, spiced earth and saline notes matched to a rich texture. Show’s some heat in the balance, with a spicy finish. Blend of Sangiovese (90%) Cannoilo (5%) Merlot (5%).

    2013 Villa da Filicaja Chianti Superiore DOCG "Vincenzo da Filicaja" - Beautifully balanced, this opens with alluring scents of wild berry, rose, baking spice and whiffs of chopped herb. Combining finesse, with bright juicy wild cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and a hint of black tea framed in polished tannins and fresh acidity, finishes with genteel Sangiovese spice..100% Sangiovese.

    2001 Villa da Filicaja Vin Santo - Amber bronze and gold color. Aromas of caramel, honey, white flower, dark corn syrup, brown sugar, and salt.. Flowers, orange rind, lemon, caramel, and walnuts on the palate. Long finish, 40-45 seconds, with notes of walnuts and orange rind. Blend of rebbiano (50%) Malvasia (50%).

    Yes only four wines but mighty wines they are! The Vin Santo is life-changing.
