We’re kicking off ‘Women’s History Month’ with two awesome wines of the week made by Anna Maria Abbona. In 1989, Anna and her husband Franco returned to Piedmont and went to work in the vineyards that Anna’s grandfather planted in 1936. Up until this point Anna’s family had been growers, selling their grapes to other wineries. Anna and Franco decided to start their own winery named after Anna in 1995, and vinify the grapes themselves.
2010 Cado Langhe Rosso SALE $14.99/ Reg $24.99 (Price is good through 3.10.19)
This is a blend of Barbera and 10% Dolcetto from 50-60 year old vines. It has notes of cherry, current, and raspberry with a fruity and soft palate and finishes with anise and nutmeg. Perfect to pair with braised greens, mushrooms, roasted vegetables, chicken and pork.
2010 Barolo SALE $35.99/ Reg. $45.99 ( LIMITED! Price is good through 3.10.19)
100% Nebbiolo from 30-50 year old vines. This is one of the best values of Barolo out there. It is brick red in color and smells of earth, roses, and cherry, which follow through on the palate with elegant softened tannins. Great to drink now, but can hold up for a few more years. Pair with mushroom risotto, beef, duck, and rich pork dishes.
