Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
Aglianico, grown on the slopes of the spent volcano Monte Vulture in the poor region of Basilicata, is the noble red grape of
Southern Italy. Its wild and feral character insures that it will never become a marketable, "brand name" grape like Chardonnay or Merlot, which is why we think
you, the discerning and adventurous Le Dû's Wines customer will enjoy it.
These wines take a little time to come around so we're offering the Re Manfredi Aglianico del Vulture 2000 rather than the Re
Manfredi Aglianico del Vulture 2006. Don't let the initial woody, barnyard aromas and gamey flavors throw you, because in the glass it quickly evolves into a dark,
brooding, inky, rustic, powerful tannic monster. This is not a wine for your grandmother to sip daintily while knitting socks, this is a wine to experience... with the
Wild Boar you shot yourself this morning!

White Wine and Cheese Pairing with Murray's Cheese
Friday, April 13th - $30
Please join Jean-Luc Le Dû and Nora Singley from Murray's Cheese as they steer us through the tricky world of wine and cheese pairings. No single wine will work with
every cheese, so what does make a great wine and cheese match? What role does texture, pungency and sweetness play? Is white wine really a better match than
red for cheese? Decide for yourself while you savor a delicious selection of Murray's cheese paired with the appropriate wines.
