“Stranger Things”: Italy Edition

Oct 27-Oct 29

This week we try three unique wines from Italy that might turn your tastebuds “Upside Down”. Featuring:

  • Tasari Grillo, Sicily – The grape that makes Marsala great (Grillo) shines in this medium bodied white tasting of pear, melon and dried herbs and flowers.  $12 btl, $6 btg
  • Barone Di Bernaj Etna Rosso, Sicily – For four generations the Madaudo family has focused on making native Sicilian wines,  which they believe are “The Baron of All” (Barone di Bernaj) Italian wines. This light, ruby red made from native grape Nerello Mascalese, which is grown on the slopes of Mount Etna, makes for easy drinking with flavors of red berries, a touch of herbs and spices, and notes of leather with a slightly dry finish. $13 btl, $6 btg
  • Le Grascete Grale, Tuscany – This “Super Tuscan” deserves the name! Super Tuscans break the mold of traditional Tuscan reds by either using unusual blends (in this case equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Merlot) and/or oak (6 mos in French). The result is a more modern Italian red with plush flavors of red and black plums and cherries, a hint of anise, and notes of earth and minerals. $21 btl, $9 btg

Tasting: $11

Paired with: Italian Sausage, Mushroom and Pesto Flatbread
