  Italian Wine Tasting

Saturday Oct. 25. 2014 – Stop in anytime 3-5

Only $10 per person-taste 5 wines + appetizers

Tasting of John Bee & Famiglia Wines

1.Porello Favorita         $14.99/bottle retail

Variously known as Pigato, Vermentino and Favorita, the Favorita grape does particularly well in proximity to the ocean and, in the case of this bottle, in the sandy soils of the Roero.  It  yields medium-to-light bodied wines that  present  a pleasant profile of floral aromatics and light acidity.  The wine works well as an aperitif and pairs well with light antipasti featuring frutti di mare.

2.Porello Roero Arneis      $17.99/bottle retail

Just across the river Tanaro from the Barolo and Barbaresco DOCG’s, on the sandy hills of the Roero grows  the Arneis grape, which produces the flagship white wine of the Piedmont.  It pairs well with seafood and summer salads, and with the other signature product of the Langhe, hazelnuts.  Its slight touch of citrus makes it an excellent pairing with the baked brie with orange marmalade.

3.Conterno Barbera d’Alba Sciulun      $15.99/bottle retail

Barbera is the most abundant grape in the Piedmont and produces the most abundant wine.  The grape is naturally high in acidity, making it an excellent wine to pair with a wide range of foods.  The wine often spends some time in oak barrels to infuse some tannin to soften the acidity.  There is an extensive range of approaches to making barberas, resulting in wines showing many different profiles.  The Conterno Barbera is the result of traditional methods of vinting and offers a wine with a generous body, full fruit on the palate and a smooth finish.

4.Produttori Nebbiolo di Carema—Carema Classico 2010 $19.99/btl retail

The small village of Carema lies on the northern border of the Piedmont next to Valle d’ Aosta, at some distance from the central wine area farther south in the Langhe.  The wine is 100% nebbiolo grapes grown on terraces up the side of Alpine peaks and growing in a thin layer of soil over the slate and schist underlayment of the mountainside.  The climate is temperate, the grapes ripen later and the resulting wine is  smooth, elegant  and full-bodied with tannins that are reserved and approachable.

5.Settimo  Barolo 2008     $39.99/btl retail  
95 Points Wine Spectator!

This is really singing today, packed with licorice, leather, cherry, tobacco and menthol aromas and flavors.  The tannins are rounding out, and though not a powerhouse, this still shows persistence and an aftertaste of spice and licorice.  Approachable now, but should evolve even more with time.
