That’s a wrap!

Celebrate the end of another working week with three diverse and intriguing wines on Friday afternoon from 5:30pm. Taste all three and save 20%!

Lagrein Rosé 2008 Castel Sallegg / ALTO ADIGE
was $20, now $16

Castel Sallegg’s rosé is made from the same Lagrein grapes as those sourced for Count Kuenberg’s velvety Lagrein Riserva. The tannic Lagrein variety gives this wine complexity and structure while enologist Mattias Hauser ensures that the wine expresses the pillars of a good rosato: refreshing, easy-to-drink and adaptable. And with Spring fast-approaching, the screw-cap bottling is an invitation to get outdoors!

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Le Coste 2004 Barone Cornacchia / ABRUZZO
was $25, now $20

This 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is made in a traditional style from grapes grown in the foothills of Italy’s “Gran Sasso” national park. At 2,912 meters above sea level, the Gran Sasso (or “Great Rock”) is the highest point in the Appenines and Europe’s southernmost glacier. Le Coste (literally, “the slopes”) are Barone Cornacchia’s most prized vineyards: these low-lying hills benefit from southern exposure and are protected from inclement weather by the Gran Sasso. This ideal combination allows the grapes to ripen slowly and create one of our favorite expressions of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

Montefalco Sagrantino Passito 2002 Terre de Trinci / UMBRIA
was $42, now $33.60

Today, we know Sagrantino primarily as a dry or secco wine. But for centuries the great red grape of Umbria was vinified almost exclusively as a sweet passito or “dried-grape” wine. Indeed, it was first made by the friars of Umbrian monasteries. Terre de Trinci’s dessert version harkens back to the origins of this noble wine.
