Italian Sunday Sippers Wine Tasting

This Sunday we are off to Italy some tasty wines – starting with a Sicilian White and ending with Amarone’s little brother Ripasso. Stop on by and perk up your Sunday.

2018 Firriato Altavilla Della Corte   $13
A Sicilian white with delicate scents of white spring flower and citrus. On the bright, linear palate, fresh acidity supports peach and lemon zest while a hint of saline picks up the finish. 12.5% alcohol by volume

2016 Cesari Mara Ripasso     $17
75% Corvina, 5% Molinara, 20% Rondinella
The Mara has notes of ripe fruit, fruit preserve and cherries.  Its incredible persistence is striking: it lingers on the palate, where it opens in all its power with a warm, elegant body.
