VINO ROSSO – BOTTIGLIA

AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA ’11, Feudi San Pio, Veneto, Italia 80
If you like your Amarone smoky and seductive, this is the wine for you. Rich and tarry, it’s brimming with dark berry fruit, charcoal and plenty of smoke notes. It’s got massive mouth presence and a firm, solid finish.

MALBEC ’14, Argento, Mendoza, Argentina 35
Bright ruby red colour with fresh raspberry, cherry, sweet plum compote and milk chocolate aromas with hints of violets and herbs. Dry, medium bodied with balanced acidity and silky tannins supporting flavours of ripe black fruits.

BASARIN BARBARESCO ’12, Marco & Vittorio Adriano, Piedmont 90
Sweet strawberry, cherry and currant fruit weaves throughout this elegant, intense Barbaresco. The structure is assertive, yet this stays fresh and vibrant on the long finish. Floral and leafy underbrush notes add depth.

CHIANTI CLASSICO ’15, Brancaia, Tuscany, Italy 75
100% Sangiovese. Just mid crimson. Fine spice and sweet red fruit on the nose. Light on the palate, yet elegant and long.

PODERI COLLA DARDI LE ROSE BAROLO ’11, Bussia, Piedmont 98
Enticing aromas of woodland berry, menthol, baking spices, tobacco and a balsamic note float from the glass. The savory, classically structured palate delivers wild cherry, crushed strawberry, white pepper, clove and licorice alongside a backbone of firm but refined tannins and bright acidity.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON ’09, Sterling, Napa, California 62
Full bodied and rich character with hints of blackberry fruit and ripe cherries with toasty vanilla and cocoa balanced by good acidity and bright cherry notes. Smooth finish with subtle elements of oak and spice.

VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO SUPERIORE (RIPASSA) ’13, Zenato, Veneto, Italia 65
Deep ruby-red in color, this wine shows intense aromas of blackberries and black currants underscored by aromas of spice pepper and a hint of leather. On the palate, it is smooth and viscous with well-balanced acidity.

ZINFANDEL ’10, Ravenswood, Acampo, California 47
Ravenswood recognized early on that Zinfandel was an exceptional grape variety for fine wine production. With seductive aromas of spice, black raspberry and mocha it is soft and round with lots of fruit and cocoa flavour. This wine is terrific with all tomato dishes.

 

VINO BIANCO – BOTTIGLIA

ANSELMI SAN VINCENZO (Soave) ’11, Robert Anselmi, Veneto, Italia 45
Garganega/Chardonnay/Trebbiano. Rich, fruity, soft and medium bodied. A pleasant easy-drinking wine that is favourably compared to fine, French Chablis.

BOLLINI PINOT GRIGIO ’12, Empson & Co., Trentino, Italia 47
Straw yellow in color, clear-cut and delicate on the nose, with scents of acacia flowers, minerals and pear. The fresh natural acidity supports the wine’s aromatic richness, confirmed on its elegantly structured, smooth, round and persistent palate.

ARROYO SECO CHARDONNAY ’10, J. Lohr, Riverstone Estates, California 45
Deep yellow in colour with aromas of ripe apple, pear, melon and vanilla. Dry, medium to full-bodied with creamy texture and peachy, oaky notes on the palate. Well-balanced with a long finish.

SAUVIGNON BLANC ’11, Villa Maria, Marlborough, New Zealand 45
Intense aromas of gooseberry, lime, asparagus and grass. Dry, medium bodied with crisp acidity and finish.
