Free Wine Tasting – Classic Northern Italian Wines
March 31, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us on Friday for a free wine tasting starring some Classic Northern Italian Wines. Taste a trio of delicious new arrivals to the store!
Northern Italy is home to some of the country’s most well known and greatest wines. From easy-going sparkling wines and refreshing whites to big, structured reds, the region has a wine for every type of palate. We invite you to stop by the store this Friday to sample some of our new favorites! Up first, it’s an estate-grown Prosecco from a family run estate — this is a rarity for Prosecco as most of these wines are made at large facilities. Trust us, you will be able to taste the difference! Up next, we’ll pour you a deliciously refreshing Arneis, one of the Piemonte’s most important white grapes. To finish, you’ll taste an exquisite Barbera from old, organically farmed hillside vineyards……….this one’s got a little age on it too. Translated, it’s drinking really well right now. Stop by, taste, learn, and save on all of the featured tasting wines.
Can’t make it by, but want to place an order? Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

1. NV Tenuta Degli Ultimi “Ciacola” Prosecco Brut (Conegliano-Veneto, Italy) – This estate-grown Prosecco comes from hillside vineyards in the village of Conegliano, long hailed as the best spot in the Veneto for Prosecco production. Fermented completely dry, it offers up crisp notes of apple and tropical fruits, finishing with zesty acidity. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better Prosecco for the money!
Tasting Price: $12.59 on mixed 3-packs | $11.04 in mixed six packs | $11.89 in mixed cases
2. 2015 Cordero di Montezemolo Roero Arneis (Piemonte, Italy) – Talk about an absolutely delicious, extroverted white! Arneis is the grape, and it literally means “rascal” because it can be difficult to grow. Whatever the case, Cordero di Montezemolo makes one of the richer, creamier versions out there. With creamy pear, peach, golden apple, and floral notes, this calls to mind good White Burgundy but costs a fraction of the price.
Tasting Price: $16.19/bottle | $15.29 in mixed six packs | $14.44 in mixed cases
3. 2011 Borgo Moncalvo Barbera d’Asti Superiore (Piemonte, Italy) – Talk about a bargain in super high quality, perfectly aged, certified organic Piemonte red wine! Most of Borgo Moncalvo’s Barbera was planted back in the 1950’s. These old vines yield a hearty and robust style of wine with soaring aromas and flavors of ripe blueberry, raspberry, and spice. The “bottle conditioning” on this one contributes a soft and supple texture.
Tasting Price: $15.29 in mixed 3-packs | $14.44 in mixed 6-packs | $13.59 in mixed cases
