At a time like this, it's pretty much impossible to be 'normal'. But it is important to try and keep what you can as close to normal as you can while you can. Even though we will not be doing the public tasting portion of the Insider's Pick until further notice, we will still be offering the wine for purchase with the usual 10% discount on Thursday and Friday. The wines will still be ones we highly recommend, and the tasting notes will still be our own. We hope you are able to come by and get some wines to enjoy.
Stefano Accordini has quickly become a store favorite since we first started working with their wines. From their uniquely high elevation vineyards above Verona in the Valpolicella region, they have given us several standout reds that many customers have fallen in love with. While white wines from the Garganega grape are known across the world from the city of Soave just to the East, they aren't known for their top flight quality many other places in the region. The higher altitude of the Accordini vineyards are what make this so distinctive, bringing a brighter, more vibrant character to a grape that often can be too soft and bland. Fresh flowers and straw aromas mix with lemon curd and zesty citrus on the nose, very Italian spring time-y sorts of aromas. The palate is super clean and fresh as well, showing plenty of body for the price point that brings out a bit more melon and a touch of the tropical towards the finish. Don't think of this as 'Soave Light', for it stands on its own merits, especially at this price.
The Best of the Best.
