Friday, September 8th from 4-7pm – Drop by Table Wine this Friday for a free wine tasting showcasing some ravishing red wine values from Italy and Spain. It’s the best free wine tasting in Asheville, and you are invited!
I’m a sucker for simple, honest, easy drinking table wines. Heck, that’s what I named my store! Simply put, wine doesn’t have to be expensive to be good, and we’re going to prove that to you this Friday. First up, the Trevini Sangiovese “Rubicone” from Italy’ s Emilia-Romagna region offers up tons of pure chugging pleasure. Low in tannin, and offering up clean notes of ripe cherry, strawberry and herb notes, it’s a great candidate for a Marco’s pizza. Up next, the 92 point rated Carlos Serres Rioja is 100% Tempranillo with plenty of character. Showcasing lots of ripe dark fruits, soft spices, and juicy, fine grained tannins, this is an absolute no-brainer. To finish, the Barbanera Ser Passo Toscana Rosso is super ripe and pleasure bent. Mainly Sangiovese with little bits of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it’s soft, lush, smooth and delicious. There you go, a trio of perfect “Tuesday Night Wines” that all retail for less than $12! Stop by, taste, learn and save big on all of the featured tasting wines.

1. 2016 Trevini Sangiovese “Rubicone” (Emilia-Romagna, Italy) – This simple, fruit forward, chuggable little red wine hails from Emilia-Romagna where wines of this sort are served with the rich and flavorful cuisine that the area is know for. Fermented entirely in stainless steel, it offers up straightforward notes of ripe red fruits and just a hint of earthy spice. Get a few bottles, make some spaghetti and meatballs, and let the chugging begin!
2. 2015 Carlos Serres Rioja “Tempranillo Old Vines” (Rioja, Spain) – Carolos Serres’ entry level red doesn’t read nor drink like an entry level wines. Composed entirely of Tempranillo from 50+ year old vineyards from choice vineyard sites around Haro, the wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged in French and American oak for 6 months. The resulting wine is surprisingly rich and layered with notes red and black fruits along with complex spice notes. With moderate tanning and acidity (aka structure), this one works well with or without food. 92 points – James Suckling
3. 2016 Barbanera Ser Passo Toscana Rosso (Tuscany, Italy) – The new vintage Barbanera’s Ser Passo is just as good as the last one. For fans of ripely fruited, lower tannin, smooth red wines, this is your new jam! Mainly Sangiovese with bits of Caberent Sauvignon and Merlot, it is full bodied and flavorful, yet soft and plush on the palate.
