Wine Features

Rosso di Toscana
Avignonesi – 2004
Tuscany, Italy

In 1309, Pope Clement V transferred the papal residence from Rome to Avignon, France. In 1377, Pope Gregory XI moved the papal residence back to Rome, and some noble families of Avignon left France to follow him. Established by one of these families, the Palazzo Avignonesi winery was built sometime in the late 16th century, making the cellars among the most ancient in Italy.

This is a delicious Tuscan red. The wine is dark purple-garnet in color showing nice concentration and exuding warm aromas of black cherries, dried herbs and earth. This smooth wine provides a rich mouthful of dark fruit flavors, raspberries, kirsch liqueur, plums and tar. Well-structured with soft tannins, have this excellent wine with hearty dishes or pork and beef.

$6.00 / glass
$24.00 / bottle

Moscato D’Asti
Saracco – 2007
Piedmont, Italy

The undisputed champion of our most recent employee wine tasting. A truly gorgeous and unique wine for those who are feeling adventurous.

Paolo Saracco is known as "The Maestro of Moscato" and for good reason. His Moscato is perfumed with fresh peach, pear and white flowers. A gentle sparkle brightens the fruit and a tingle of sweetness hints of candied fruits. Enjoy as an aperitif or a refreshing way to finish a meal.

$20.00 / 375ml bottle
