$25 Wine Wednesday

The May Wine Wednesday Calendar is Here!

Two glasses of our featured bottle of wine and its appetizer for only $25

May 4th–Cantine di Indie, Lunedi Rosso Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2016. Paired with a house-made cheesy garlic sourdough loaf.

Indie’s Montepulciano is full of blackberry and marionberry, and juicy, warm purple flowers. It is medium-bodied with a bright acid that makes it very fresh, easy to drink, and interesting — best served with a slight chill.

May 11th–Castillo de Jumilla Monastrell 2019. Paired with grilled lunch box peppers with a mint tzatziki sauce.

100% Monastrell. Brilliant violet red. On the nose, fresh fruit, cherry and blackberry. Well-balanced with soft tannins and sweetness. It is dry with fresh acidity, red fruit spice, and a hint of herbs. Light and elegant style with a persistent aftertaste.

May 18th–Tenuta di Sesta Poggio d’Arna Rosso Blend Toscana IGT, 2018. Paired with flash fried short rib ravioli.

40% Sangiovese Grosso, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 30% Merlot. Wine ages six months to one year in French Allier barriques and large Slovenian oak barrels, followed by a minimum of 2 months’ refinement in the bottle.  Deep ruby red with brilliant violet effects, fresh red fruit, and spicy aromas, with an intense note of licorice.  The full-bodied wine has a harmonious taste that is soft, zesty, and fascinating.

May 25th–DeForville Ca del Buc Moscato d’Asti DOC 2020. Paired with a house-made dessert TBD.

100% Moscato, naturally sparkling wine. Intense fragrant nose with floral notes that recall lemon and lime-tree. Enticing notes of yellow fruits like peach and apricot. Sweet, fresh and naturally sparkling with balanced acidity and low alcohol content. The sweetness of the residual sugar is balanced by moderate acidity.  Pairs well with citrus based desserts!
