CHARDONNAY

Is to white wine what Cabernet is to red wine. When Chardonnay wines are made well, they are bold, rich, and complex and taste of ripe figs, peaches, honey and butter, hazelnuts and spice. Chardonnays, more than any other white wine, love to be aged in oak.

Pair with gnocchi, spinach ravioli, cream sauces and most fish.

BARBERA

It is a deep ruby color, full bodied, with low levels of tannins balanced by higher levels of acidity. Barbera is characterized by bright berrylike flavors and is one of the best alternatives to Merlot. Pair this with veal, vodka cream sauces, wild mushrooms or lamb. 130.

PINOT NOIR

SANGIOVESE

The wines that it produces have a natural austerity from the high acidity and tannin. A good Chianti, Brunello, or Vino Nobile evokes a smoky, forestry quality which mingles the sweetness of the fruit along with spicy herbal undertones.

Pair with roasted meats, rich pastas, and cheeses.

SUPER TUSCAN

In the 1970’s, certain progressive winemakers decided to push the traditional barriers and experiment with blending different varietals to make wine greater in structure and complexity. These wines typically blend Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sangiovese, but do not exclude other varietals. The following are wines that we feel represent the intent beautifully.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

It produces wines that astonish with their richness and complexity. The classic Cabernet flavor is one of deep, dark fruits, primarily black currant (cassis) and the best are medium to full-bodied, intense and firm. These wines are rich, and therefore need food equally as rich, such as stews, red meats, salty items like prosciutto or pancetta to help mellow the tannins.
