About the Event
Are you a lover of Italian wines? In addition to our complimentary daily wine tastings, join us every Saturday as we introduce new wines to you from all over Italy. You will taste up to 3 wines that we will choose to offer to "expand your palate" and we will share food pairing ideas too!
Linda will be offering:
Bajaj Roero Arneis DOCG – Arneis 100%, Color is straw yellow with greenish reflections. Bouquet is deep and mineral with hints of ripe yellow pulp fruit and white flowers. On the palate it is soft and intense, with a slightly acidic vein that gives freshness and persistence. Interesting post-nasal vegetal notes of aromatic herbs. It is characterized by an extraordinary minerality. Excellent wine to pair with typical Piedmontese appetizers, also with first courses of vegetables or fish. Also excellent for aperitif.
Bajaj Langhe Nebbiolo DOC – Nebbiolo 100%. Color is pale ruby red. Bouquet is fine and delicate, with hints reminiscent of cherry and wood strawberry. On the palate it is pleasant with dominant fruit at first. Later, an elegant, silky and soft tannin emerges, typical of the sandy soils of the Roero. It goes perfectly with long-aged cheeses, stuffed pasta or with hearty Piedmont braised and roasted meat dishes. Amazing match with handmade dark chocolate.
Dezzani Piemonte Albarossa DOC - This wine has a ruby red color with a bouquet rich of scents of black cherry and underbrush berries. It is a rounded, well bodied wine with a wide structure. Its aftertaste is long, pleasant and direct to the palate. Pair with risotto, pasta, veal, meat and cheese.
We will also resume food tastings in the shop - So many new Italian imports to taste and savor!
