We love this crisp refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. It is perfect on a hot day or for your “Happy Hour” as we do down under. The Valparaiso region of Chile is renowned for producing great wine. As you detect the first aromas upon opening the bottle, your mouth will water. Juicy citrus and tropical fruit abound with subtle notes of passion fruit. This white wine pairs really well with white meats, fish and lean red meats.
VERDICCHIO DEI CASTELLI DI JESI FAZI BATTAGLIA 750ml
Titulus is the perfect standard bearer of a Verdicchio Dei Castelli, by famed wine maker Fazi Battaglia. The grapes are harvested by hand and soft pressed ready for fermentation. Beautifully presented in a classic Italian amphorae bottle speaks to the millenary old traditions of Mediterranean wine making.
The wine sparkles with a sunny bright color. It is fresh, with fruity and floral notes. The mouth is rich, tangy and mineral, with a pleasant almondy finish.
Pairs wonderfully with appetizers, risottos, poultry, seafood or any dishes prepared with cream sauces, also mushrooms.
Best served at 8-11 C (46- 51 F)
This is an everyday, table wine, straight from Veneto, Italy. Granted, we can’t expect to drink or afford some amazing wine every day, those, we save for special occasions. We like this wine, goes great with meat, poultry or a hot soup on a rainy day. Mellow and pleasant.
Per the Wine Enthusiast, this is “a bright and sharp rendition of Cabernet Sauvignon (and 10% Merlot) with background notes of wild berries, forest floor and vanilla bean. The wine is tonic and lean with a determined blast of freshness on the close.”
“Significant tannins and rich blackberry velvet. Good.” Primitivo is a fine grape from Italy. Pairs well with beef and pasta.
Expert wine reviewers such as Vivino proclaimed it to be “Good value for money. Similar wines usually cost 41% more…”
So, in a nutshell this falls under our own invented category of “wines we like”. With this we signify these are very good table wines, and affordable to have with your everyday meals. Notice we also carry the other category named “wines we love”, just to differentiate, those are very special, and yes, pricey, thus reserved for special occasions.
This wine is exceptional!
Deliciously fresh and aromatic with notes of strawberry and raspberry. In typical Italian flare and style, the bottle bespeaks elegance with a genuine Swarovski crystal embedded in the front of the bottle. Perfect served chilled on a hot summer afternoon. One of the most popular wines from Abruzzo, Italy (the home province of the Schullo family, not that we are biased or anything whatsoever!). Abruzzo is a stunning mountainous region (famous for its skiing slopes), on the eastern coast of Italy, with wine making traditions dating back to about 600 B.C.E.! Best served between 4-5C (39-41F), pairs really well with fish, pasta, salads, Asian and Mediterranean dishes.
