RED

Amarone della Valpolicella 
A deep red wine. Crated from the Valpolicella grapes of Verona, Italy; Corvina, Rondinella & Molinara. The grapes are dried for 120 days until they reach just 40% remaining moisture. They are then pressed and fermented before being cask aged for a minimum of two years. This process allows the grapes to develop rich flavors of dark cherry, black fig, plum, chocolate, molasses and crushed earth. This Amarone could easily “cellar” for an additional 20 years, mellowing to a silk, port-like finish. 

Chateau Guibot 2009
The Chateau Guibot Winery lovingly cares for a small vineyard located in St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France. This very limited production Bordeaux blend is commonly described to have powerful tannins. Deep flavors include plum and black currant. We have the last of the production year for this particular wine. It is just now beginning to ‘open’ for your enjoyment and consumption and will continue to do so for the next three to five years. 

Valpolicella Ripasso
A “Baby Amarone” also from Verona, Italy. Made with the partially dried Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grape skins and lees left over from the fermentation of the Amarone. Ripasso wines are rich, full-bodied and share a lighter version of the aroma and flavor profiles as the Aramone wine.  

Domain Excelcio Maroc 2011
A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, Domain Excelcio is a very small French vineyard of only 12 acres located just above Casablanca, Guerrouana, Morroco. The family takes advantage of the wonderful soil and salinity of the ocean coastline. The Succulent flavors include deep red fruits with a saline, earthy finish.
