WINE TASTING WITH THE EXPERTS AT MERCATO

25th July 2012

You know we <3 wine! Vino is definitely one of our biggest passions- there is nothing better that enjoying a appetising dish accompanied by a good glass of fine Vino. 

Each month we will be showcasing at Mercato our upcoming WINE OF THE MONTH with the aid of Expert Guest Speaker Andrea Asciamprener, from Eurowines, as well as more wine tasting during saturdays with Sommellier Dario and other guests (watch this space). 

Pop down to Mercato this Saturday from 10.30am-12.30pm 

This month we take you to Sicily to the Cusumano Winery 

ANGIMBE "GLASS CORK", CUSUMANO (SICILIA)

Grape Varieties

70% Inzolia & 30% Chardonnay

Vinification

The grapes are hand harvested from vineyards located in Salemi. Cold maceration of the skins for 12 hours at 8°C. They are then fermented at between 18°-20°C in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then stored of its lees for 4 months before bottling & release.

Tasting Notes

Angimbé takes its name from the forest that borders the town of Salemi. The wine has a unique bouquet ranging from fresh flowers to ripe tropical fruits. Medium bodied, with good intensity and a flamboyant fruit cocktail finish. Delicious! A pleasing partnership of the indigenous Sicilian Inzolia grape and the elegant, international Chardonnay. 14% vol.
