Complimentary Wine Tasting this Saturday, Dec. 10., 2- 4 pm at Savour!

SATURDAY, DEC. 10, 2-4 PM

JOIN US FOR A COMPLIMENTARY WINE TASTING WITH HARRY ZARKADES, OWNER MAIN STREET WINES

We always enjoy it when Harry, co-owner of Main Street Wines, comes to Savour to pour his selections. Main Street specializes in quality wines at a reasonable price, many of which are organic, fully natural, or biodynamically farmed. Along with some great choices for the weekday dinner table, Harry is pouring a gorgeous, beefy Chateau-neuf-du-Pape, one of my favorite Italian whites (a Maceratino) from the Marche, and a luscious, full-bodied Barolo, so come join us to sip and savour all these glorious wines.

WINES

Clendenen Family Vineyards Pinot Gris 2020, Santa Maria, California

Varietal: Pinot Gris Alc.13.5%

Jim Clendenen had already collected countless honors and accolades for his Au Bon Climat wines when he created the Clendenen Family Vineyards label in 2000 as a vehicle to bring many of his most artisanal and experimental wines to market. All are produced in very small quantities; many of these wines are crafted from unique varietals grown primarily on his organically farmed Le Bon Climat and Rancho La Cuna Vineyards. The project has expanded to include special plantings at Bien Nacido Vineyard as well. While two of the jewels from this project are Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, he also makes benchmark examples of Nebbiolo, Tocai Friulano, Viognier, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, and a Syrah/Viognier blend. The Pinot Gris has stone fruit aromas and a rich, full body with juicy peach and nectarines notes and a spicy ginger note on the finish.

Pairs well with sushi, salads and fresh vegetables, shellfish. $24.99

Fontezoppa Asola 2017, Marche, Italy

Varietal: Maceratino Alc. 14%

Cantine Fontezoppa is a young company in central Italy on the Adriatic coast in the province of Macerata between Civitanova, Marche and very close to Civitanova Alta, an ancient 14th century village. The company, which takes its name from the ancient source of water that gushed out where the rows of vineyards now grow, was born thanks to the acquisition of the land in Civitanova Alta by the Luzi family in the late 1990s. Made from hand-picked Maceratino (or Ribona) grapes, this wine has an intense straw yellow color and strong and complex nose, with aromas of ripe fruit, citrus peel, peach, yellow flowers, united by a deep mineral note and a touch of vanilla. It is balanced and consistent on the palate, with a pleasantly long and fresh finish.

Pairs well with anchovies and other fish, white meat, truffles. $31.99

Salt Wine Company Pinot Noir 2021, Oregon

Varietal: Pinot Noir Alc.14.5%

Salt Wine Company sources fruit from the most prestigious vineyards on the West Coast and works with seasoned, artisanal winemakers. With partners and relationships built over 35 years, they make craft, small-lot, control-brand wines. Salt Wine Pinot Noir is full of aromas of sweet fruits – plum, raspberry, and black cherry, with layers of spice and sweet tobacco. On the palate, a juicy burst of red berries and black currants is framed with a beautiful tannin structure. A lively and complex mid-palate with mineral and spice notes lingers on the finish.

Pairs well with roasted root vegetables, salmon, roasted chicken. $17.99

Natale Verga Intré Rosso, Lombardy, Italy

Varietals: Corvina, Sangiovese, Nero d’Avola Alc. 14%

The Verga family has been producing wine since 1895. These days, the fifth generation of Vergas is making wine in Lombardy, and they have made improvements and innovations in production that have allowed them to expand distribution worldwide. The Natale Verga Intré Rosso is an Italian red blend that hails from three different terroirs, Corvina (Veneto), Sangiovese (Toscana), and Nero d’Avola (Sicilia). It opens with a bouquet of red currants, blackberries, black cherry and a sweet spice of licorice. The flavors travel to a round and warm palate, and while the tannins are present, they lead to a soft, lingering finish.

Pairs well with baked macaroni and cheese, chicken ravioli, or pizza. $ 14.99

Chateau Gigognan Clos du Rois 2016, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, France

Varietal:70% Grenache, 25% Syrah,5% Mourvèdre Alc. 15%

Like many great estates, Château Gigognan has a long and storied past. The roots of the vineyards date back to the time of the Romans. The property’s modern history began when Anne and Jacques Callet purchased the Clos du Roi domaine and began restoring the château. All through the 1990s, the Callets worked to rebuild the property and create a better-equipped cellar. In 2009, the winery was certified organic. Jacques Callet passed away in July of 2016, and the property was purchased by Jean-Francois Henin in 2017. A new era began, and even greater restoration has taken place. A whole new production facility has been added, and winemaker Stéphane Derenoncourt is establishing the winery as one of the most exciting in the region. The Clos du Roi is primarily one large parcel with just a few tiny satellite parcels. The 2016 Clos du Rois wine pours a vivid ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit scents are complicated by suggestions of licorice and white pepper. Spicy and focused on the palate, the wine displays vibrant raspberry, bitter cherry, and floral flavors along with a smoky nuance. It finishes with resonating spiciness and chewy tannins.

Pairs well with mushrooms, barbecued beef, Osso Buco. $49.99

Bovio Barolo 2018, Piedmont, Italy

Varietal: Nebbiolo Alc.: 14.5%

Bovio is a small wine cellar located at the heart of the Barolo growing area. It is run by the third generation of wine producers in the Bovio family. Gianfranco Bovio began to look after his father Alessandro’s holdings in the 1970s, renovating the old cellars and dedicating himself to the making of wines grown on the estate vineyards that stretch out over 8.5 hectares.

Now daughter Alessandra and her husband, Marco Boschiazzo, continue the family tradition with winemaker Matteo Franchi. The company philosophy is embedded in tradition and terroir, from the scrupulous tending of the vineyards through the ageing of the wines in large oak casks. The Bovio 2018 Barolo (with fruit from La Morra and Castiglione Falletto) delivers a very bright and lifted bouquet with cassis, wild fruit and hints of dried apricot or apple skin. On the palate, ripe berries and spicy notes combine with the lightly firm tannins to give a plump, velvety texture. There is a chocolate-cherry, almost liqueur-like note on the finish.

Pairs well with blue cheese, roast duck, prime rib. $54.99

And don’t forget to check out what’s new in our beer case. We just got in a new shipment of Maine Beer, with the IPA’s “Lunch” and “Little Whale Boat” leading the charge.  We have a rich brown ale called “Brown Dog” and the wonderfully dark but slightly hoppy Robust Porter, both from Smuttynose.
