2011 Terre di Gioja Pinot Nero ($14)
The Armani family viticultural origins date back to the 17th century. Terre di Gioia is the family’s newest initiative which sources their grapes from specific vineyards in “Vallagarina”, the area that connects Trentino, the Veneto, and South Tyrol. This line of wines are “vini di tavola”; table wine from agricultral regions, meant to be pleasurable, affordable reflections of the places where the vines sink their roots. A North Italian Pinot Noir with a lighter body, clean cherry fruit and smooth lingering finish. 12.5% alcohol by volume
2011 Cormòns Merlot ($11)
A vine of French origins, it was imported in 1880 from Gironde (Bordeaux) to Friuli, where it has found an ideal habitat, it has adapted without problems to the climate, it has developed with vigour and fertility, so much so that it has become the most widespread after the Tocai Friuliano. A northern Italian Merlot with good dry fruit and spicy notes. 13% alcohol by volume
And from 2-4pm we will be having an artist reception with Genevieve G. Tremblay.
