Great Italian style blend: Chianti?
Wine labeled Chianti must be comprised of Sangiovese grapes and made in Italy. Sangiovese is the principle grape in Tuscany. It provides the juice from everyday table wine all the way to big, bold Super-Tuscans and Brunellos. In Sonoma County winemakers at Ferrari-Carano cultivate Sangiovese to create a red blend called Siena. This montage of Sangiovese, Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal match to a multitude of foods, particularly of Italian origin like tomato based dishes. Siena will also pair well with a nice steak or perhaps some fava beans. Either way Siena, consistently excellent across vintages, satisfies wine lovers year after year. You can expect aromas of blackberries, cherry pie and vanilla bean on the nose. It has a great mouth feel and depth along with a tremendous finish. The tannins are soft, not abrasive. We are happy to introduce you to the latest vintage of this wine on Friday night. So, you may come in the shop for Chianti and leave with Siena.
Angel’s Envy’s name comes from the term “angel’s share”, or the fraction of whiskey lost to evaporation during the aging process. Whiskey lovers wax poetic about this bourbon using all sorts of adjectives to describe it’s goodness. This is a whiskey expression that has made it’s place on the bar and has proven that it is going nowhere any time soon. Angel’s Envy is the last project of Lincoln Henderson, master distiller who created Woodford Reserve and Gentleman Jack. Currently his son and grandson carry on the tradition in Louisville. We recently had the opportunity to create our own special concoction using three different blends. Look for the Market Basket blend in the shop in April. It will be like no other bottle you have had before. And you may just decide to have it again. Or at least we hope you do!
