It’s the stuff red wine drinkers’ dreams are made of: Italian reds are here at SOHO! We aim to bring you some delightful little gems that you wouldn’t otherwise find in Atlanta, without actually having to travel to Italy. Our paired savory tapas are to die for, so make sure you’re good and hungry when you show up!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, February 13th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through February 19th.
“Color: deep ruby red with bright highlights. Nose: forthrightly and fruitily intense, initial sensations of sour black cherry and cherry giving way to pleasantly earthy notes of damp soil. Bouquet: despite a lack of structure and persistence, its characteristic fruity freshness makes Pelisa eminently quaffable.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Vigneti Del Vulture Aglianico Pipoli D.O.C. ‘16 from Basilicata, Italy. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Bright red with violet reflections. This wine has a strong aromatic integrity with hints of cherry and sour black cherry mixed with spice and vanilla. Good structure, long, balsamic finish, mature tannins and persisting aftertaste.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Tenuta di Ghizzano “Nambrot” 2015 from Peccioli, Tuscany. Notes on the wine,
“It was first made in 1996, using Merlot grapes, and has evolved over the years into a blend together with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, demonstrating the potency, warmth and character that our territory can express. It is named after the founder of the Venerosi family, whose name was Nambrot and who lived in 830.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
