First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Castello di Neive Barbera D’Asti from Alba.  The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,

“Deep ruby red, intense aromas of black fruits and licorice complement chocolate, mocha, and hints of Ti-Tree oil. Great acidity and well integrated oak lead to great structure and a long finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Fontanafredda Ebbio Nebbiolo from Langhe, DOC.  The wine is described as,

Color: Deep ruby red with violet highlights.  Aroma: Complex nose with traces of withered flowers, such as roses and, geraniums.  Taste: Warm, soft, and inviting, with velvety tannins, great balance and a lingering finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2011 Tenuta Marsiliana Birillo from Manciano, Maremma. The winemaker says,

“Birillo is the epitome of a joyful, fruity wine made from cabernet sauvignon and merlot.  The deep, brilliant violet in the glass has a mysterious smoothness that characterizes the nose with aromas of jam and strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, Mediterranean herbs, and black olives. The tannins are balanced with its agility and with lightly toasted notes that accompany the prevailing density of its fruit, until the final flavorful, refreshing sip.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler, has created tapas plates for each of the wines!
