On October 31, Vino hosts its most frightening Friday tasting yet. Join us – if you dare…
This Friday, at the stroke of 5:30pm, as the full moon rises into the dark Manhattan sky, those who dare venture down the mystical path that is East 27th Street will find themselves at a truly terrifying tasting!
The staff at Vino have plundered the dank depths of their dungeon cellar and unearthed three wines to tempt you and make you tremble with delight (and maybe just a little fear). This spookiest of samplings is FREE but may cost you your soul…!
Lambrusco Scuro 2007 Lini 910
From the usually festive Lini range, this red sparkling Lambrusco is a darker, heavier alternative to its more innocent cousin, Labrusca Rosso, thanks to a lengthier, more gruesome period of maceration and full fermentation. Like a dark and deadly knight, the nocturnal Lambrusco Scuro (literally, “dark lambrusco”) arrives from Emilia-Romagna dressed in black and ready for night.
Pinot Nero 2004 Castel Sallegg
In Alto Adige, high amidst the Dolomite Alps, there lies a lakeside castle, in which there lives a count: Count Georg Von Kuenberg, whose dwelling is the Castel Sallegg. This ominous abode also happens to be one of the region’s top winemaking estates. The cool swirling breezes rising up from misty Lake Caldaro allow the thin-skinned Pinot Nero grapes to flourish on the slopes, resulting in a haunting expression of this unique terroir.
Valtellina Inferno 2004 Conti Sertoli Salis
Conti Sertoli Salis’ Nebbiolo-based Inferno comes from the snowcapped Alpine mountains of Lombardia’s Valtellina Superiore DOCG subzone of the same name (so-called for its warm micro-climate). The juice is then aged for 12 to 18 months in barrels cut from (possibly enchanted) trees of Slavonian oak. Don’t be deceived by the flowery label and rich aroma: the fiery Inferno is a hellish wine worthy of its name.
