Wine Thursdays: Fattoria Del Cerro Rosso di Montepulciano

posted on July 27th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Fattoria Del Cerro Rosso di Montepulciano is a blend of Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and Mammolo, from a vineyard of Pliocene origin with mostly clay with stones and shells on the soil. The wine went through alcoholic fermentation for 5-7 days, followed by another eight days of fermentation on the skins. 70% of the wine aged in Slavonian oak casks for six months and 30% ages in French oak barriques for six months. The wine is bottle refined for three months. The result is a vivid ruby red colored wine with intense aromas of wild black cherry, violet and a subtle vanilla undertone on the nose. The full-bodied palate is elegant and well balanced with robust tannins. Pair it with first course dishes with meat sauces, stuffed pasta or casserole dishes and grilled red meats. Fattoria Del Cerro was founded in 1922 by the Baiocchi family and the estate quickly became an established part of the Montepulciano wine making community. Back in 1978 it was acquired by Saiagricola and emerged… Read More

National Scotch Day is July 27: Take 25% Off Scotch One Day Only!

posted on July 26th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

National Scotch Day is Tomorrow, July 27! We're celebrating this awesome drinking holiday with 25% off our entire Scotch whisky selection. Some Scotch basics... Scotch Whisky is a collection of grain based beverages distilled in Scotland. Most are produced from malted barley, although corn is used in some, which post distillation is aged in oak casks for a desired length of time. The Single Malt Whisky, the ultimate connoisseurs dram, is 100% malted barley, from a single distillery. Age statements range from 8 years to the elusive and incredibly rare 50 yr, which can exceed the price of an automobile. Scotch "sipping rules" that should always be obeyed... Scotch whisky should be served at room temp, not chilled, not with ice, just with a drop or two of water, if this is too aggressive, add water to taste, but in small increments, you can’t undo what you did. Serve in a snifter or a tulip glass, not a cut glass tumbler or an old fashioned. Slowly let the whisky… Read More

Taste the Sweetness in Our Summer Peaches

posted on July 21st, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Super sweet peaches can be hard to come by. Too often they’re under ripe and therefore, lacking that special sugary flavor that should define the seasonal fruit. But our summer peaches exude sweetness – with each and every juicy bite. How do we ensure that our peaches rank supreme? It starts with our dedicated farmers, whose passion lies in the thoughtful and meticulous growing of the exceptional fruit. Swearing to the Sweetness Unlike so many peaches you’ve regretfully eaten, our local peaches are tree-ripened until they've reached the peak of sweetness. Our multi-generational farmers we’ve come to know and trust have learned that timing is everything when it comes to picking only the perfect peaches off of their trees. Calling all Peach Lovers & Science Buffs The Brix Scale – this system is the key to the sweet peach promise. Our farmers swear by it and now, so do we. It’s used on the farms, before the peaches are shipped to our stores, and then… Read More
