HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING

Tuesday May 14th  2019

6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2017 Zenato Pinot Grigio

Veneto, Italy

Lemon-green in color, aromas of Key limes and white peaches complement undertones of green apples and grains of paradise. On the palate, it is smooth and refreshing with a long, pleasant finish.

BTG $6.50  Retail $11.99

2016 SANSONINA EVALUNA CABERNET DEL GARDA

Veneto, Italy

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc

Silty/morainic soils with the presence of clay are well-suited soils for Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Sandy soil elevates aromatics and creates softer wines, showing less tannin. The presence of clay allows a balancing act to sand, offering higher extract and color. Vinifying in stainless allows for the fresh red fruits to emerge together with peppery characteristics of the Cabernet duo.

BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99

2015 ZENATO ROSSO VERONESE ALANERA

Veneto, Italy

55% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 10% Corvinone, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Brilliant ruby in color, Alanera delights the senses with a variety of aromas and flavors that include fresh and dried cherries and prunes, sweet spice, and hints of coffee and tobacco. On the palate, Alanera is full-bodied with elegant and velvety tannins. Vibrant acidity brings balance and freshness, and supports a long and harmonious finish. 93 Pts James Suckling

BTG $7.25 Retail $15.99

2015 ZENATO RIPASSA

Veneto, Italy

85% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta

This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, the Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in color, bouquet. This is so refined and focused with layers of fruit and ultra-fine tannins. Plenty of chocolate and spice, too. Medium to full body, integrated tannins and a focused finish. 94 Pts James Suckling

BTG $10.00 Retail 24.99

2015 ZENATO AMARONE VALPOLICELLA DOC

Veneto, Italy

80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 10% Oseleta and Croatina.

Ruby red in color, intoxicating aromas of dried black cherries, cassis, truffles, and chocolate fudge leap out of the glass. The resulting wine is silky, luscious, and complex, with a lingering finish. 93 Pts WS

Retail $62.99
