WINES

 

Noelia Ricci Bro’ Trebbiano,

Varietal: Trebbiano, Alc. 13%

 

Noelia Ricci is a project started in 2010 within Pandolfa, an estate rich in history and stretching over an area of 140 hectares at the foot of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. The estate was acquired by Giuseppe Ricci in 1941, but he did not turn the land to agriculture and vineyards until the 1950s, when he planted Sangiovese, Trebbiano, and Albana grapes. Ricci’s daughter took over upon her father’s death in 1980 and started planting new vineyards and building a winery. In 2010, Marco Cirese, one of Noelia’s great-grandchildren, began the Noelia Ricci project, a tribute to the classic winemaking style, with a contemporary approach.By avoiding over-extraction, excessive alcohol content and highly concentrated colors, he strives to make wines having a fine structure, strong personality and complexity, while maintaining an inviting approach and pursuing drinkability. The Bro’ Trebbiano is straw yellow with golden reflections. Delicate fruit scents, lemon zest, florals, and citrus aromas lead to a palate that is fresh and has flavor consistent with the bouquet. It is round and balanced, with a citrus and mineral backbone, and notes of bitter fruit on the finish. Pairs well with risottos, white meats. $19.99

 

Illahe Viognier, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Varietal: Viognier, Alc.12%

 

Illahe, pronounced Ill-Uh-Hee, is a local Chinook word meaning “earth” or “place” or “soil.”At Illahe, owners Lowell and Pauline Ford strive to make wine as naturally as possible from soil to bottle. They work by hand on small lots with age-old techniques and materials. The focus is to grow and make quality Pinot Noir and white wines that express the vintage and their varietal characteristics without enzymes or additives. Some of the wines are made entirely by hand, with no electricity or modern mechanization; they use a gentle wooden basket press. They are committed to dry agriculture and responsible water practices and do not irrigate mature plants. As one of Oregon’s few horse-powered vineyards, they use a team of Percheron draft horses to mow and deliver grapes to the winery at harvest. The Illahe Viognier has aromas of white peach, nectarine, dragon fruit, pineapple, jasmine, and sweet pea. The palate is clean with vibrant acidity, and it has a refreshing finish. Pairs well with salmon, roast chicken, spicy food. $ 27.99

 

 

Ameztoi Rubentis Rose,Getaria, Spain

Varietal: Hondarrabizuri, Hondarrabibeltza, Alc. 11.5%

 

Ameztoi is a renowned producer in Getariako Txakolina, respected for producing both traditional wines in large barrels and as an innovator for their rosé txakolina and method traditionnelle sparkling wines. Ameztoi owns twenty hectares of estate vineyards facing the Bay of Biscay, high on the slopes rising above Getaria, an ancient Basque fishing village on Spain’s rugged northern coast. Ignacio Ameztoi is the fifth generation of his family to carry on the tradition of making txakolina in the province of Getaria and has played a key role in the advancement of the region. Ameztoi Rubentis rosé is a field blend of the local, indigenous hondarrabizuri and hondarrabibeltza varieties, grown on traditional trellises. In the 2000s, when almost all of the other local wineries gave up on the indigenous red hondarrabibeltza vines, the Ameztoi family retained their old vines. Rubentis, the region’s first pink wine, was inspired by the historic claret style wines which were once produced in the area. The backbone of the blend comes from an old hondarrabibeltza vineyard planted in 1840, preserved by the Ameztoi family for generations. The Ameztoi Rubentis pours pale pink with fine, elegant bubbles, the result of natural fermentation. Aromas of citrus and menthol are followed on the palate by notes of strawberry and caramel. Pairs well with oysters, sushi, seafood tempura.$24.99

 

Domaine Arnoux Savigny-Les-Beaune, Burgundy, France

Varietal: Pinot Noir, Alc.14.5%

 

For many generations, Domaine Arnoux Père &Fils has thrived in the village of Chorey-lès-Beaune, where they perpetuate the Burgundy wine tradition. Created by René, his children Michel and Rémi began to expand the Domaine and develop the bottling. In 1990, Pascal joined his uncles and produced his first vintage in 2007.

The Savigny-Les-Beaune pours a deep red color.Aromas of Morello cherry, blackcurrant, and raspberry mix with spicy notes and lead to a refined and supple palate. It is a delicate and elegant wine. Pairs well with roast pork, grilled chicken, risotto. $42.99

 

 

Illahe Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Varietal: Pinot Noir, Alc. 14%

 

Home of some of the most elegant and expressive Pinot Noir in the world, the Willamette Valley is a mixed landscape of green, rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. At Illahe, in addition to using using draft horses to plow and to transport the grapes, they use solar power and the winery buildings are gravity-flow, featuring three levels, and using the natural slope of the site, starting from the crush pad to the fermenters and the press below. A further drop-off from the fermentation room to the press level means the press baskets can be loaded by hand. The care that is taken with the land and the grapes shows in the wine. The Pinot Noir has aromas of ripe plum, nutmeg, cigar box, and vanilla bean. The fruit on the palate -- cherry torte, tamarind paste, strawberry jam, anise – along with nutmeg and cinnamon spice, help develop a balanced and weighted mouth feel with good acidity and smooth, lingering tannins. Pairs well with grilled salmon, coq au vin, mushroom pasta. $31.99
