Tiezzi 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Cerrino

Retail wine of the week: Sept. 16, 2017

Tiezzi
2010 Brunello di Montalcino
“Poggio Cerrino”

TASTING NOTES FROM TIEZZI
“Brunello di Montalcino is made using traditional methods and is naturally stabilized. No filtering takes place before bottling. The grapes ferment in wooden vats for over 20 days. This Brunello ages for 44 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. It undergoes no physical/chemical treatments and spends over 4 months in the bottle before being released for sale. The flavor is full, harmonious with sensations of ripe fruits of the forest. Tannic with a lingering aftertaste. Serve with tasty dishes; roast and barbecued meat, mature cheeses and dry patisserie.”

TASTING NOTES FROM DEVIN MUYLLE
Vertical Detroit – Certified Sommelier

“Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s most prestigious wines and the 2010 vintage was a pinnacle year in Tuscany. This wine definitely overachieves for is price! It is elegant in style with intense aromatics, firm masculine tannins and tart cherry on the palate.

2014 Bret Brothers Viré-Clessé, Mâconnais

Wine of the Week – Aug, 9 – Aug.16

2014 Bret Brothers
Viré-Clessé, Mâconnais

TASTING NOTES FROM BRET BROTHERS
“Viré-Clessé has been a Cru du Mâconnais since 1999, the fruit of the unification of AOC Mâcon-Clessé and Mâcon-Viré joining the status of Pouilly-Fuissé, Pouilly-Loché, Pouilly-Vinzelles and Saint-Véran. Our Viré-Clessé Climat « La Verchère » comes from 50 year-old vines in the village of Viré, North of Mâcon. A pretty East facing plot of vines whose clay and limestone soils are ploughed to reveal the noble Terroir of Viré. Balance, citrus and minerality join forces in this beautiful wine.”

TASTING NOTES FROM DEVIN MUYLLE
Vertical Detroit – Certified Sommelier

“This flirtatious wine from the Mâconnais district in southern Burgundy is produced from 100% chardonnay. It has the perfect amount of oak on the palate and a clean finish of limestone minerality. This wine is perfect as an aperitif but will also stand up to fish & poultry dishes!

2016 Domaines Ott, Château de Selle, Côtes de Provence Rosé

WINE OF THE WEEK – Aug 2 – Aug 8

2016 Domaines Ott, Château de Selle, Côtes de Provence Rosé

TASTING NOTES FROM DOMAINES OTT

“A subtle balance between structure and finesse, this wine is a perfect illustration of the precision required to make a rosé, the rigorous process that celebrates the flesh of the fruit and the very heart of the grape… The wine is a reflection of the complexity of its limestone hillsides and arid soil; austerity bathed in dazzling sunshine.The Château de Selle Rosé combines various grape varieties from the Côtes de Provence appellation, including a majority of Grenache creating the delicate colour and vinous character. The Cinsault adds softness and the Syrah and the Mourvèdre bring fruit.”

TASTING NOTES FROM RÉMY LUTFY
Owner & Wine Lover at Vertical Detroit

“This wine is a true representation of what Provence can produce. Domaines Ott has always been one of my favorites, especially the Château de Selle. Its delicate style pairs perfectly with our charcuterie & cheese selection or is perfect to enjoy on its own. I await this beautiful rosé every year”
