Classic Italy,

Saturday, October 5th, 2pm

This Saturday we are featuring some classic Italian wines from a new local importer.
The wines are vibrant, the prices are great, and there are a couple of stars in the lineup.  We’ll also have a new olive oil for you to try.  Importer Fulvio Longo will be here to show his wines and tell you more.  Don’t miss it.

2012 Vigneti Zabu, Grillo $11
Vigneti Zabù is a fairly young winery set up 5 years ago in the town of Sambuca di Sicilia by the local wine growers association.  The vineyards are situated in the hills above Lake Arancio.  Grillo is local Sicilian varietal and the Zabu is dry and refreshing with notes of crushed herbs and citrus
blossoms.

2011 Corbinelli Rosso Toscana  $9
90% Sangiovese, 10% Trebbiano
The Azienda Agricola Corbinelli was founded in the 1600’s. Over the years the property and land has grown to its present size of 20 hectares, 11 hectares are cultivated as vineyards and 4 as olive groves on Chianti’s lovely rolling hills. Their Rosso is an old school style Tuscan red where they blend a bit of white grapes (Trebbiano) in with the Sangiovese.  It has a lighter body, nice fresh fruit, and a touch of old world charm.

2011 Terre di Sava, Luccarelli, Primitivo di Puglia  $12
Terre di Sava started in 2008.  In the Salentine countryside, around Sava, you find Primitivo, a precursor to Zinfandel, with some vines over 100 hundred years old. While the vines for the Luccarelli aren’t that old they are full of blackcherry, plum and spice aromas, a dry, medium body, and ripe black fruit flavors.

2006 F.lli Casetta, Barbaresco  $30
Nebbiolo
The Casetta family has been vine growing and wine making since 1725, and still to this day it is a family estate.  The vineyards are spread out amongst the Langa and Roero, where they are farmed using natural and environmentally friendly techniques.  This sturdy Barbaresco from a great vintage is starting to open up, showing tobacco, tea, & olive notes.  The wine is austere but velvety, with a long finish.

2007 La Casella, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Reserva  $35
La Casella was formed in 1974 from several vineyard sites surrounding Montepulciano by Alfio Carpini embracing organic and natural farming methods. Techniques such as rigorous pruning and particularly careful attention to detail during the harvest make all the difference once in
the bottle. The wines are rustic and designed to age beautifully.  Only Brunello can rival Montepulciano for superior Sangiovese.  This is an outstanding wine.

Bonoito Extra Virgin Olive Oil,  750ml  $12

Val dell ‘Acate

Thursday, October 3rd

5:30 to 7:30

with Francesco Ferreri

Valle dell ‘Acate is located among the sinuous hills of the Dirillo valley in south-eastern Sicily.  The estate covers over 100 hectares with soil, locally known as “Milaro,” characterized by a particular substrate of calcareous sandstone, interleaved with packets of clay that allow the vines to produce high quality grapes.  It is run by a 6th generation wine making family, committed to the continuation and valorization of the ancient wine growing tradition of the province.  Stop by after work this Thursday and try their great wines.  

Francesco Ferreri, one of the owners and President of the Consorzio del Cerasuolo di Vittoria, will be here to talk about his wines and the region.  He’s come all the way from Sicily.  Don’t miss the chance to meet him. 

Valle dell ‘Acate’s, Case Ibidini wines are made from single varietal estate grapes are intended for more casual consumption.  These wines provide a purity and authenticity reflective of the philosophy of the estate.   

We’ll be showing the, 2011 Insolia and the 2011 Nero d’Avola (both $13 a bottle)

We’ll also have their more contemplative:

2011 Zagra  $18
60% Grillo, 40% Insolia
The Zagra shows aromas of white flowers of citrus fruit, wild rose.  It is fresh and dry, with a balanced acidity.

2011 Il Frappato $19
Aged 6 months in steel tank, and then 3 Months in the bottle, the Il Frappato is fragrant, fresh and bursting out with intense notes of bilberry, blackberry, and raspberry.  It is light but persistent; with small black and red fruit that coats the tongue. 

2009 Cerasuolo di Vitoria $26
Nero d’Avola 70%, Frappato 30%
The flagship wine of Valle dell ‘Acate, the Cerasuolo di Vitoria is aged in a combination of the steel tank and barrique for 12 months, and then for a minimum 9 months in the bottle before release.  It has scents of mature blackberry and raspberry with notes of soft spices like liquorice and cacao.  The flavors are soft and velvety. The tannins are balanced.
