Italian Crowd Pleaser Bonus Offer:
2013 Cala De Poeti Morellino di Scansano (x1)
Cala de Poeti Morellino di Scansino is the quintessential wine from Maremma, a beautiful area of the Tuscan coast that is known as Italy’s Wild West. This fruity and dry red has a voluptuous texture, with fragrances of fresh cherries and plums. Made from hand-harvested grapes grown in a restricted production area between the rivers Ombrone and Albegna, Cala de Poeti Morellino di Scansino is ruby red, with fruity with notes of cherries, blackberries, and violets. It has a great complexity, with soft tannins that make it the ideal match for grilled red meat, lasagna, and mature cheeses.
2014 Cala De Poeti Maremma Toscana (x1)
Maremma is Italy’s Wild West. This gorgeous section of Tuscan coastline is a landscape of white sandy beaches, umbrella pines, strawberry trees, oak trees and heather that gives way as one drives inland to classic rolling hills covered in olive trees and magnificent vineyards. This beautiful land’s sun, sand, clay, and sea breezes unite to impart the meticulously pruned grapes in 2013 Cala de Poeti Maremma with an exceptional quality. Pour a glass of this complex, ruby red Tuscan favorite and savor intense, vinous aromas that lead into a dry, fruity flavor that summons cherries, blackberries, and violets. The soft tannins and persistent finish make Cala de Poeti Maremma the ideal pairing for highly flavorful foods like grilled red meat, lasagna, and aged cheeses.
2015 Abbazia Dolcetto d'Alba D.O.C (x1)
Just seeing the word Alba makes us excited. Known as the gourmet capital of Italy, many things come from Alba that bring us tremendous joy. White truffles, savory cheeses, homemade pastas, roasted meats that make our mouths water, and exquisite wines to go with it all. From Alba, we turn to Dolcetto to enjoy for a nightly meal. Known as the “Shy” Italian, it drinks one way, simply to be enjoyed. It is not like its sister variety, Nebbiolo, which is far too complex and requires too much thought and attention. Here, you can enjoy wines from Alba, especially Dolcetto, for what it is, a great wine to enjoy, now. What to expect from Dolcetto? It simply drinks beautifully when paired with anything with tomatoes. Even though Dolcetto means ‘little sweet one’: this wine is dry and definitely not little. Flavors of blackberry and boysenberry flow through its velvety mouthfeel with a firm finish.
