This Saturday, join us at G.B. Russo & Son from 11AM to 2PM for a three-wine tasting lineup, including a cabernet, chianti and montsant.
Rated 92 points by Wine Spectator, this Marchesi De’ Frescolbaldi Chianti features black cherry, spice, tobacco and earth flavors in this dense red wine. The tannins verge on being gritty in texture, yet there’s adequate acidity to keep this fresh. Best from 2016 through 2024.
Rated 93 points by RobertParker.com, The 2008 Bellsum is composted of 45% Garnacha, 45% Carinena, and 10% Syrah aged for 16 months in new French oak. Also deeply colored, it displays an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, exotic spices, incense, lavender, blueberry, and black cherry. In the glass, it displays opulence, loads of sweet fruit, and outstanding volume. Give it 2 to 3 years to fill out and drink it from 2013 to 2023.
