Tasting Set Includes:
- Haras de Pirque Albaclara Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc is a luminous light yellow in color. The nose is intense, with a striking and pleasurable vibrancy, along with notes of citrus fruit and herbs. There is an excellent freshness created by the influence of the coastal zone. The palate is persistent with notes of mint and citrus fruit, sustained by much savor and crispness.
- Antinori Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva
Ruby red in color. The nose shows intensely fruity notes of ripe cherries, red currants, and wild berry fruit along with well integrated notes of toasted oak and tobacco, and a touch of balsamic sensations. The palate is ample and enveloping, savory, soft in its tannins and velvety in texture. The finish and aftertaste are long and persistent.
- Antica Napa Valley Mountain Select Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon radiates with luxurious fruit, allowing the small percentage of Cabernet Franc to accent the beautifully spiced aromas. The palate is filled with succulent red cherry and plum flavors. The wine has great elegance and finesse while exuding richness, power, and concentration—which will allow the wine to age with ease.
