Valentine's Day Treats
The aroma at first blush is a layered cloudburst of flowers, nectar, and white fruits offered in apology to the onslaught of flavors of peach, Juicy Fruit gum, and rose petals which quickly evaporates off the tongue leaving a delectable dry finish and sense of euphoria that comes with a return to the good graces of one's stung love.
This is the icon wine of the historic Serego Alighieri estate and comes from the eponymous vineyard, the source it seems of the very name Amarone itself.
This noble wine is produced using time-honoured practices in the vineyard, in the ancient drying lofts and in the cellars.
Its elegant personality is enhanced by the use of the Serego Alighieri clone of the Molinara grape and by ageing in cherry-wood casks, as family tradition dictates.
Amarone Corte Sant’Alda is made from a selection of Corvina 40%, Rondinella 20% and Corvina Grossa 40% from our central vineyards – Roaro Vineyard 7 – Valletta Vineyard 5 and Bosco Vineyard 6 – for an overall area of 3.70 hectares.
All our grapes have organic certification and in recent years the vineyards have been managed on the basis of bio-dynamic agriculture principles.
This Amarone hits the spot when you're in the mood for a rich red wine. Dry yet very giving on the palate, with aromas of blackberries, fresh prunes and dark chocolate, it is a surefire crowd-pleaser.
Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage Port (LBV) is a superb wine, selected from the finest production of what was a spectacular year. Whereas Vintage Port spends two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is matured in seasoned oak and then bottled at between four and six years of age; hence the term, ‘late bottled’. Its ageing process encourages the wine’s development, and as such, at the time of bottling it is ready to drink without the need for decanting. Produced in the style of Graham’s great Vintage Ports, Graham’s 2012 LBV has a near opaque purple color with vibrant aromas of blackberry and dark cherry as well as hints of freshly picked mint. Full-bodied with brambly fruit flavors, this wine shows Graham’s signature complexity and elegance in perfect balance.
Graham’s 2012 LBV can be enjoyed anytime and pairs wonderfully with dark chocolate desserts and hard cheeses like mature Cheddar or even a goat’s cheese.
Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé is truly remarkable for its highly expressive bouquet, stemming from very careful preservation of fresh fruit aromas during the wine making. Made with 100% Pinot Noir from 10 different "crus " (or villages), from the North and South areas of the Montagne de Reims, as well as the famous Cote de Bouzy. Grapes from carefully selected plots are meticulously sorted and de-stemmed before going into the vats, and the controlled maceration helps with the color extraction and the development of the full aromatic richness of the Pinot Noir.
Intensely fruity flavors, clean and slightly sharp, the wine opens to the sensation of freshly picked red berries: strawberries, Morello cherries, black currants and raspberries. The finish is supple and rounded.
Grand Siècle is made with a pinot noir and chardonnay blend, with the latter being slightly dominant. Twelve of the most prestigious villages supply these grapes; all of them classified at 100% Grands Crus such as Ambonnay, Verzenay, Mailly, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Within the vineyards of these villages, only the very best plots are selected, as are the finest musts from the pressings. The blended wine is then aged during the second fermentation on the yeast for approximately five years.
It has a bright color, with a brilliant yellow hue. Its subtle aromas of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and brioche, make this the perfect companion for refined dishes. It pairs just as well with poultry and truffles as it does with veal and morel mushrooms.
Take some advice with your next sip of wine! Chardonnay, Syrah, or Sauvignon Blanc - no matter the varietal, just love the wine you're with.

The Love Red grapes are harvested early to highlight the fruit and preserve the acidity. The Carignan is a combination of whole cluster and destemmed fruit from three 70 year-old dry farmed vineyards in Northern California. The Valdiguié is 100% whole cluster and the Syrah is mostly destemmed. The wine was aged in a combination of neutral French oak barrels and concrete tanks. The Carignan delivers the blue fruit in the wine. Valdiguié brings out the brightness and lifting acidity. Syrah holds it together, adding depth and structure.
BLEND: 72% Carignan, 20% Valdiguié, 8% Syrah,
ALC: 12.5% alcohol
Made by a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier from 1er cru vineyards in the village of Jouy-les-Reims from millesime 2013.
The color is pale yellow with vivid gold reflections. Tiny bubbles rise incessantly from the bottom of the flute. If you keep your ear near the edge of the glass, you can hear the sounds of those popping bubbles, almost like a small waterfall in an alpine creek.
On the nose, you are welcomed by a salty and musky note. White spring flowers, key lime pie and anise are present as well.
The taste shows the freshness of a perfect bottle to start the evening. Light but still structured on every side, it leaves the palate clean and ready to come back for more.
Aged for three years prior to being disgorged; a blend of 50% Pinot Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay; selected from vineyards situated in Vrigny, Coulommes and Pargny. A modest dosage is applied at the time of disgorgement to render a fresh, floral, but still full-bodied Champagne.
