A Note from Sergio
Some occasions call for pulling out all the stops--opening that bottle of '88 Granbussia or '97 Biondi-Santi. Other nights call for nice meditative bottle, a thinking wine, something by Quintarelli, Ferrari or Fiorano. Other dinners want a wine that'll make the food sing, something like Solaia, Ornellaia, or Sammarco. But other nights, you need something that's fun, palate-friendly, and delicious. That's where the wines of Per Linda come in.
Per Linda makes exceptionally affordable wines--each of this trio is just $12.99--but don't overlook these bottles. Today's offer includes a delicious red, Per Linda Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, a vibrant white, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, and a sunny rosé, the Per Linda Cerasuolo. The first is a classic, easy-drinking, food-friendly red from the heart of Abruzzo; the second is a bright Trebbiano bottle, and the third is the Montepulciano grape again, but made as a food-friendly rosé. Together, this group covers all your summer go-to wine bases.
Along with this easy-going Italian red, I'm happy to offer a ten serious Corton-Charlemagne bottles from ten serious Burgundy producers. 2011 was a great vintage for this Chardonnay appellation; it mixed concentration with precision, and my clients who are real Burgheads won't want to miss this offer. Finally, I'm delighted to present the 2012 Sassicaia in magnum. The only thing better than a bottle of Sassicaia is a big bottle of Sassicaia, and the '12 vintage is, as its maker said, "rather special."
To every time, there's a wine, and it's my pleasure to make sure you have the right one to set the right mood--whether casual, special or extraordinary.
