Tasting Notes

February break is in full swing, but for those of you that haven't fled to some distant beach or snowy mountain we will still be pulling corks on some new bottles for our special wine tasting this weekend, many of which have only recently come into the store, including: 

 

Azienda Agricola Signano, Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG 2021 - 100%  Vernaccia (Only 85% required for DOCG certification). Vernaccia comes from the Italian word Vernaculo, meaning "common" or "indigenous". The region in which a particular Vernaccia grape is grown will often append its name to the grape.  As the Vernaccia in this case comes from Tuscany's San Gimignano, the grape varietal is named "Vernaccia di San Gimignano," which is the only white wine in the region to have DOCG status. The nose is fruity and flowery with an essence of apple and almond.  On the palate, this dry wine is fresh and pleasant, with nice acidity.

Cave de l'Ormarine, Preambule (Picpoul De Pinet) 2022 - Picpoul de Pinet is an appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC), certified in 2013, within the Languedoc region in southern France. The name Pique-poul literally translates to "stings the lip", a reference to the grape's high acidity. This wine is salty and tangy with ripe fruit personality and goes great with seafood or Mediterranean styled dishes.  Easily crushable!

Lagone, Aia Vecchia 2021 - A "Super Tuscan" wine of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. This is the flagship wine of Aia Vecchia, which was created in 1998 by Tibor Gal, following significant acclaim that he received while working for Ornellaia. The famous winemaker named this wine after a little creek running between the vineyard and the villa. Structured and elegant, Lagone is one of the greatest values to come out of the Bolgheri/Tuscan region.

Tenuta Regaleali, Tasca Lamuri 2019 - 100% Nero d’Avola grapes cultivated in the high hills of central Sicily.  Regaleali was purchased back in 1830 by brothers Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca. This wine will hopefully prove as inspirational as the Regaleali estate was to Richard Wagner back in 1882 who finished the 3rd Act of "Parsifal" while a guest at the Villa.

La Croix De Peyrassol Rouge, IGP Mediterranee 2019  - Founded in the 13th century by the Order of the Templars, this winey is steeped in history.  This Syrah/Cab blend is the perfect everyday sipper. Nose reveals notes of licorice, pepper and peony that give way to a beautiful procession of small red and black fruits.  On the palate this wine shows good body that is supported  by velvety tannins and a smooth acidity. Intense flavors of red fruit, blackberry and spice blend together on the palate to provide a round and fleshy finish.
