We are spending the weekend in Italy here at Madrona Wine. We’ll be starting in the library and ending with some new releases. Swing by and taste with us.
Saturday we have some older vintages from Sant’ Elana in Friuli. These wines are amazing values. Come watch us turn back time.
2013 Sant’ Elena Klodic Pinot Grigio $15
2009 Cabernet Franc $22
2007 Sant’ Elena Cabernet Sauvignon $19
2001 Sant’ Elena Merlot $17
1997 Ros di Rol $23
Sunday we are pouring two new wines from 2017: a fresh Verdicchio from the Marche region, followed by the crowd-pleasing Octopus of Sicily.
2017 Sartarelli Classico $12
Verdicchio dei Castelli de Jesi
Straw yellow color with intense greenish nuances. White peach, elder, hawthorn aromas. A well-structured wine, soft on the palate, the characteristic slightly bitter almond aftertaste (typical of this varietal).
2017 La Cantine di Indie Polpo Rosso $15
A new vintage of this light Sicillian red, special bottling for a local importer. The red octopus is a tenatious wine with bright acidity, layered cherry flavor and lingering finish. Organic. 12.5% alcohol by volume
Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday, we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.
