We are putting together a special wine dinner with our friends 12th Avenue Grill and Donato Loperfido of Flavors of Italy.  Anytime Donato puts on a meal, you know you are going to get an some of the best Italian food and wine in Honolulu.  This is going to be festive because all the wines will be from large format bottles.  Nothing screams, “PARTY!”, more than a big bottle of wine and the bigger the better.  Not only are big bottles impressive, the wine ages better and stays fresher longer.  Grab some friends and family and have a memorable meal during the holiday season.

2014 San Felice Il Grigio Chianti Classico Riserva 750ml $26.50

Made only from the finest  Sangiovese grapes carefully selected from the estate Chianti Classico vineyards,  this Reserva represents the perfect blend of the traditional and the modern. It spends some 24 months  in oak, with about 20% in small barriques, and one year in the bottle. The front label bears Titian’s famous portrait of a medieval knight in armour.  Deep ruby red colour. Aroma: intense and persistent with the typical notes of sweet violet and wild red berries. An austere, full-bodied wine, with succulent tannins and fresh acidity. Enriched with an aromatic complexity that originates from a delicate dosing of wood.

2013 Piaggia Carmignano Riserva 750ml $44.00

Very intense, almost impenetrable, clear ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe fruit, embellished with elegant hints of tobacco, chocolate and sweet spices. On the palate it expresses a powerful structure but also, with a measured balance, soft fruit against the round and mature tannins. e nish is long and fruity. It goes well with red meat and game, extra mature cheeses and quality cured meats. 

2012 Domenico Clerico Arte Langhe Rosso 1.5L $115.00

This blend of 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Barbera is aged for 20 months in new French oak. Plentiful aromas of toasty oak, red currant, leather, cedar and spice box from the core of this medium weight red.
