This week, Matt Corson with Coastal Beverage…
Matt will be pouring:
Mercato “Pesce” Vino Bianco
Proprietary White Blend
Venezie IGT, Italy
Tropical aromatics give way to a refreshing white wine that is easy to drink and enjoy. Stone fruit flavors fill the mouth and the finish is clean – with just enough acid to tease your taste buds into another quick sip. Pairs well fish and shellfish dishes – fried fish, smoked shrimp, grilled fish. Don’t forget to try Pesce with lighter cheeses like mozzarella, salty parms or Spanish Manchego. Serve at gatherings with antipasti.
2016 Le Morette Chiaretto Classico Rosé
55% Corvina, 35% Rondinella, 10% Molinara
Bardolino DOC, Italy
Light-bright rose in color with a fragrant, fresh and fruity flavor. The bouquet is characterized by scent of yellow peaches, strawberry, and nuances of violet. At taste is full flavored, well-balanced, with intense fruity sensations, and an harmonic dry finish. Bardolino Chiaretto is a fine wine for many combinations of food, as Italian hors-d’oeuvres, first courses, fish soups, and white meats.
Mercato “Carne” Vino Rosso
Proprietary Red Blend
This is a deep red blend of handharvested grapes that have been crafted into this bottling from a small Italian family. It is juicy and bursting with ripe, red fruit and a mildly lingering finish. This is a perfect wine for every day enjoyment, casual gatherings as a refreshing sipper on the deck or poolside. Pairs well with burgers and steaks! But don’t box yourself in – Carne is just as tasty with pizza, pastas with red sauce, and a huge variety of cheeses.
2016 Demarie Nebbiolo
Langhe DOC, Italy
Delicate, but intense on the nose, this wine opens up slowly to release delightful impressions of wild violet and ripe Morello cherry. Mellow tones of cherry, raspberry, and wild strawberry jam on the palate, with a bit of star anise on the finish. Stainless steel fermented.
Demarie Birbet Brachetto Spumante
Vezza d’Alba, Italy
The color of this sparkler is cherry red with faint ruby nuances. On the nose it carries fragrant and aromatic floral undertones, reminiscent of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. In the mouth it is sweet without being tedious. Strong, pleasant hints of red fruits amplified by fine perlage.
