Thursday’s tasting opens the week in high style. Focusing on Italy, and classic Italy at that, the line-up features not one, but two aged Italian wines from Tuscany that not only drink like a dream, but won’t break the bank. Furthermore, these two wines show the beauty of both best-known styles from Tuscany- traditional and modern. The Chianti Classico is the essence of traditional Italian wine-making, while the Sapaio is more modern in style, what the cognoscenti call a “Super-Tuscan”, incorporating Bordeaux Varietals for a rich, structured wine with serious chops.
Join us Thursday evening from 5 to 8 PM for a special chance to experience these fantastic, one-of-a-kind wines first-hand.
Riecine Chianti Classico 1999 ($49.99): With almost two decades of age on this classic library release from highly regarded Tuscan Producer Riecine shows why these aged Sangiovese from Tuscany are so highly sought after. Complex and still showing hints of freshness, even with substantial age this wine is displaying in full living color the leather, rose petals, orange blossom and sanguine qualities we expect from wines like this.
