We have four wines for you to taste this week, with our compliments.
From Puglia, in southern Italy, two wines from Masseria Liveli, in an ancient wine-growing region, produce fine wines at reasonable prices. Today, we invite you to try:
Liveli Fiano (2013): A dry wine, pale yellow in color, with the aroma and taste of citrus and pear, crisp and light, a perfect summer companion for sipping or with meals.
Liveli Primativo (2013): Purplish in color with intense red fruit flavors, a touch of spice – bold but not overpowering - with a smooth, long finish.
From the Gascony region in southwestern France,
L’escargot Sauvignon Blanc (2012) is a delicious, dry white wine that rewards you with the perfect balance between crispness and fruity flavors – an ideal companion for fish and fowl, throughout the year.
From California’s Napa Valley, the Raymond “R” CollectionField Blend Lot No. 5 (2013) showcases the region’s wine growing bounty. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Sirah and Zinfandel is a full bodied wine with luscious raspberry, cherry and blueberry flavors, and a touch of pepper for a memorable, tangy finish.
