Fleur de Mer evokes aromas and flavors of fresh watermelon, cherry, subtle citrus, peach, lavender and Mediterranean herbs. It is medium-bodied, fresh and elegant with a soft texture and mineral finish.
In harmony, the wine offers pleasing aromatics of jasmine, orange blossom, honey-lemon, and roasted marshmallow. The entry is assertive with bright acidity that quickly softens to flavors of crème brulée, white peach, and honey-suckle. An engaging mineral note is present throughout to provide balance. The finish is lively and radiant with a stony tinge reflecting the provenance. 91pts RP
Allegrini Palazzo della Torre
This is one of the wines that has made Allegrini famous throughout the world. The blend is the historic combination of Corvina and Rondinella with the addition of a small quantity of Sangiovese. A small percentage of the harvested grapes are left to dry out until December and then added to the previously vinified fresh grapes. The result is a velvety, well-balanced red wine that proffers mature, pulpy fruit.
Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley
Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up bold notions of cassis, black cherries and spice box with hints of cedar and fragrant earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with loads of muscular fruit accented by a notable but not overwhelming oaky presence, going to a long, layered finish.
