Greetings From CT Wine Authority

This week's two featured wines, a Chianti from Tuscany and a Pinot Grigio from Tre Venezie, are brilliant examples of Italy's classic Old World style. We are excited to offer our customers these delicious wines at the discounted price of $9.99 per bottle. If your schedule allows, please join us on Saturday afternoon to sample these wines.

Chianti is a Tuscan wine that most wine drinkers are familiar with.  The predominant grape in a classic Chianti is Sangiovese, although sometimes blended with small portions of other popular Italian varietals including Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia.  Chianti's are often described as dry reds, emitting dried cherry and spice notes, containing nice acidity that is balanced with firm tannins. For our featured wine this week, Coltibuono Cetamura Chianti, the winemaker selected the best Sangiovese & Canaiolo grapes from various sub-zones of Chianti.

This week's white wine selection is Riff Pinot Grigio from "Tre Venezie," a world renowned region for quality white wines.  Riff translates in German to reef, which relates to the ancient sea that used to cover the current location of the Alois Lageder vineyards.  The vineyards are located on the slopes of the Alpine Dolomite foothills, where soils are rich with limestone, thought to come from the previous existence of the ancient sea.  This beautiful wine shows the classic dry style of Italy with a touch of minerality.

Cetamura is the name of an Etruscan settlement on the Badia a Coltibuono property. The winemaker tells us that this wine was conceived with the intention of creating a young, pleasant wine, perfect for every day. He and his staff selected the best grapes from the various sub-zones of Chianti to express the typical freshness and accessibility of these varieties.

Tasting notes: Intense bright ruby red, cherry and blackberry nose with cinnamon and clove nuances. Full and well-balanced, soft but tasty, with good structure. Pleasant acidity, clean and persistent aftertaste. more

This top-value Pinot Grigio reflects the expertise of acclaimed winegrower Alois Lageder, who selects the wines from vineyard sources in Italy's northeastern "Tre Venezie"; consisting of Trentino-Alto Adige, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and the Veneto. A fifth generation winery owner and winemaker in the Alto Adige, Lageder's long-standing credibility with winegrowers gives him access to some of the region's best grapes.

The limestone fossil seen on the Riff label is emblematic of the soil in the grape growing regions where this wine is made. The alluvial dolomite soil has a direct and highly prized influence on the character and style of the wines from the region.

Tasting notes: An appley white with some mineral and dried fruit character. Medium body, light finish. Good value, drink now.more
