Hello and Happy Friday!
Hope you had a great week. A brief bit of store news before we begin today.
Sheb is going on vacation for the next two weeks, so there will be some changes in store hours while she is gone. Please note:
Perman Wine will be closed on the two upcoming Mondays – September 9th and 16th.
Also, on Tuesday, September 10th, Perman Wine will open at 4 pm.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but Sheb really needs a break from her mean boss!
Tonight, join us for another edition of “Routier”, between 5 & 8pm.
On select Friday nights, we offer a flight of three wines to taste plus a small snack, for $25. No reservations needed, so walk on in.
2012 Rabasse Charavin Cairanne Blanc
2011 Viña Sastre Rosado
2006 Salicutti Brunello di Montalcino “Piaggione” (this is actually today’s Friday Feature, so if you want a preview, stop by!)
We used to know this distributor who would always talk about the best producers of a region in terms of “the guys.” He would say – “Craig, there are only three guys in this region, and this is one of the guys.”
Well, today’s newsletter focuses on one of those “guys.”
The famed Tuscan appellation of Brunello di Montalcino is full of great wineries. So much so that for the consumer it is a daunting task to try them all and develop a few favorites.
That is where we come in. While we certainly haven’t tried them all, we have sacrificed our livers tasting dozens over the years, all in order to find you the cream of the crop.
Poderi Salicutti is on our short list of the best of the best in Montalcino.
So if you fancy yourself a big fan of Sangiovese, and like us, know that Brunello di Montalcino can be one of Italy’s greatest red wines, then you will want to read on.
Have a great weekend,
Craig & Sheb
