Wine Features

Salice Salentino

Reserva – 2001, Candido

Sandonaci - Italy

Owned by brothers Alessandro and Giacomo Candido, the Candido estate in the Salentino district of Puglia is at the forefront of a small, influential cadre of wineries who have attracted international attention to the increasingly stylish, quality wines emerging from Italy's south.

The wine, 85% Negroamaro and 15% Malvasia Nera, is soft garnet red in color with a nose of tobacco leaves and dried fruits. Suggestions of licorice and dried ripe fruits as well as a strong acid presence make this a great food wine. Pairs well with beef and pork dishes.

$7.00 / glass

$28.00 / bottle


Chateau Bonnet -André Lurton – 2002

Bordeaux, France

Traditional white Bordeaux blend consisting of 45% Semillon, 45% Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% Muscadelle. An excellent pairing with a light salad or a seafood entrée.

The Entre-Deux-Mers is a large area of the Bordeaux wine region between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers. It is the second largest appellation in Bordeaux and is known for its dry white wines consisting of primarily Sauvignon Blanc.

$6 / glass
