We’ve got some great French AND Italian wines for your April Wine Club!
• Domaine de Veil Orme – Sauvignon Blanc – France > Loire Valley. Fresh and vibrant with lime, grapefruit and a touch of limestone mineralogy. Spends four months on the lees giving it a creamy, textured mouthfeel.
• Chateau Les Terrasses de Bouey – Bordeaux Rouge – France > Bordeaux. The nose marries red fruit with toast and coffee notes. More of the same on the palate with spice tones and delicate earthy notes.
• Mauro Molino – Dimartina Vino Rosso – Italy > Piedmont. A blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the northwest region of Piedmont. Full bodied Italian with fruity and spice flavors.
