We haven’t told you about our by the glass wine list here in a while. We thought we’d let you know about some of the selections we’ve added to our wine list. We’re very proud to say that we still have the only 100% Italian wine list in Iowa.
Here are a couple of the wines that we’ve added to our list:
Vermentino Maremma IGT – Aia Vecchia – 2011 — 100 % Vermentino from Tuscany- a clean & medium bodied whitehints of freshly cut grass and grapefruit.
Barbera D’ Alba DOC – Podere Ruggeri Corsini – 2010 – 100% Barbera aged in oak barriques with mediumrich, ripe fruit with hints of plum underlined by spice
Langhe Rosso DOC – Stefano Farina – 2007 — 40% barbera, 40% nebbiolo & 20% merlot grapes from Piedmontfirm, yet elegant body with dark fruit that’s aged in oak casks
Ciro Rosso Reserva DOC – “Duca San Felice” – Librandi – 2009 100% Gaglioppo (think merlot) grown by Calabria’s most celebrated winery — aromas of figs, tobacco and fresh cherries followed by an earthy finish… This has been on our list for a while, but we like it so much we thought we’d remind you that we have it.
Rosso IGT Venezia Giulia – Le Vigne di Zamo – 2010 — cabernet, merlot & refosco make up this sexy red from Friuli ( northeastern italy) — gorgeous notes of vibrant berries-sturdy finish as this gem is aged six months in oak… We added this in March, but it’s worth showcasing again. This is agreeable with most people and we’re lucky to be able to pour it by the glass.
Below is the rest of our list. Please take a look at our reserve list as well and as always, don’t be afraid to ask your server questions if you need help or if you need to be pointed in a general direction. We’re happy to help!
