CASTELLO DELLA SALA
‘Cervaro della Sala’


TASTING NOTES FROM KEVIN DUNBAR
Vertical Detroit – Server & Wine Enthusiast

“The Antinori Family is well known for their incredible Italian wines, and the 2014 Cervaro della Sala is no exception to that legacy. Produced from 90% Chardonnay & 10% Grechetto, this is one of the greatest white wines I have ever tasted. This wine gives your palate everything a well-made wine should, from oak to minerality to fruit. This wine is beautiful on its own but would also be perfect paired with anything from scallops to a charcuterie & cheese board.”

“This is a beautiful Champagne from small producer, Camille Savès in the Grand cru town of Bouzy. This cuvée is comprised of 60% chardonnay and 40% pinot noir, this blend gives the wine its electric mouthfeel and incredible richness. On the nose there are notes of tart cranberry and great acid and minerality on the palate.

“Cyprès de Climens is the second wine from famed Bordeaux producer, Château de Climens. Female winemaker, Bérénice Lurton is known for her incredible wines being a true expression of the Sauternes – Barsac appellation. The 2013 vintage has honey like characteristics balanced with wonderful acidity. Traditionally paired with desserts, I also love to pair this wine with salty foods, think cheeses, nuts or even the Vertical Grind Burger topped with foie gras.”

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!
