Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4, April 4

Your Host: 
Cindy Richardson, New England Vice President Empson USA

Pieropan Soave Classico  $15.99
Sleek and smoky, this light-bodied, silky white is packed with flavor. A smoky hint of minerality underscores the range of ripe apricot, blood orange, pickled ginger, Thai basil and verbena notes. Lovely, with a lasting streak of salinity on the aromatic finish. Drink now through 2020. Wine Spectator, 90pts 

Vigneti del Vulture Pipoli Greco-Fiano 2013 . . . $15.99
Pale lemon in color, with perfumes of citrus and a touch of stone fruit. Rich yet fresh with a lime zest character, which comes from the Greco fruit, balancing the richness. 50% Greco – 50% Fiano. Winemaker’s Notes 
Luigi Einaudi Dolcetto di Dogliani 2013 . . . $19.99

Ruby red in color with purple reflections, fruity aromas, good body, intense, fresh berry and underbrush flavors with an almond nuance on the finish. Winemaker’s Notes

Hauner Hiera Terre Siciliane 2013 . . . $20.99
The blend is 60% Alicante, 30% Nocera and 10% Nero d’Avola, and the quality of fruit is immediately apparent and bright. Hiera opens to a deep dark color with ripe notes of raspberry jam and cassis. Indeed, that ripeness of fruit is very well-managed; there’s a fullness and generosity on hand that never feels sticky or heavy. Bright veins of acidity are woven within the thick texture of the wine. Wine Advocate, 90pts
