2011 Marianello Cielo Rubio

2011 Marianello Cielo Rubio

All wine ages, but the good wines evolve and transform themselves over time. The Cielo Rubio is such a wine.  Predominantly Sangiovese (75%), with 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Petite Sirah, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon blended in to bring more complexity and character to the wine. The first sensations are of strawberries and rhubarb, with herbal notes making themselves known. This wine’s tannins are integrated with the fruit, showing that they can more than hold their own alongside the racy acidity that Sangiovese is known for.  Serve alongside a prime bistecca fiorentina or some slices of Santa Maria style tri-tip

2011 Purple Beast Santa Barbara County

2011 Purple Beast Santa Barbara County

Does the name Purple Beast pay homage to the Beastie Boys?  Or classic rockers Deep Purple?  Or perhaps the name alludes to Prince and his Purple Rain?   Or Hendrix and his Purple Haze?   Our lips are sealed on this, so you can decide for yourself.  Don’t be fooled by its quirky name, Purple Beast packs serious flavor.  You’re treated to a seductive nose of plum, sage, anise and hints of dried orange peel.   The blend of mostly Petite Sirah and Syrah with some Mourvedre, Petit Verdot and Tempranillo has a fruit forward palate of cherry and red plum with earth, truffle and licorice.  Try some paired with duck breasts with apricot-Szechuan peppercorn sauce or rosemary & balsamic marinated lamb shanks.  Or embrace your inner rock star and pair Purple Beast with your very best air guitar playing.

2011 Centellinare Santa Barbara County

2011 Centellinare Santa Barbara County

The word “centellinare” is Italian for “to sip and to savor”, making it the perfect name for Tre Anelli’s proprietary, handcrafted Super-Tuscan-style blend.  Super Tuscan wines are Sangiovese combined with one or more French red varietals. The bold and beautiful 2011 vintage consists of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese. The nose of red raspberry and cola leads to a rich palate of Bing cherries, black plums, and cassis.  Centellinare and its well-integrated tannins pair extremely well with dishes like balsamic & rosemary marinated Florentine steak, sausage with polenta, or creamy saffron risotto.  Sip and savor some Centellinare today!

50% Petite Verdot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Sangiovese

2010 Centellinare Santa Barbara County

2010 Centellinare Santa Barbara County

Centellinare (which means “to sip and savor” in Italian) is Tre Anelli’s New World riff on the brilliantly complex Super Tuscan wines of Italy. Our blend is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and a smidge of Tempranillo which together create a wine with great structure and depth. A nose of black stone fruits leads to flavors of plum and black cherry with hints of dark chocolate, cola, leather and subtle earthy notes. All this is followed by Centellinare’s rich and lingering black cherry finish that invites you back for another taste. The high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in this blend makes this wine a perfect match for meals with grilled meats like hanger steak with bacon chimichurri or flat iron steak with pistachio pesto butter. Salute!

2008 Centellinare Santa Barbara County

2008 Centellinare Santa Barbara County

After years of being bound by rigid rules from the DOC (Denominazione de Origine Controllata -the government body in Italy that controls wine), a group of revolutionary Tuscan winemakers thumbed their noses at authority by combining Sangiovese with French varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to make a style of wine now known as Super Tuscan.   Half Sangiovese, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petite Sirah, Centellinare, which means “to sip and savor” in Italian, is our New World homage to Super Tuscan wines.  This complex wine is well balanced with a nose of dark berries, subtle earthy notes and flavors of raspberry, cassis, fig and spice.  Pair this wine with anything with tomato sauce, Parmesan crusted rack of lamb, or a grilled New York steak with balsamic reduction.  Celebrate freedom, raise a glass and toast the revolution!

2010 Diavolessa Santa Barbara County

2010 Diavolessa Santa Barbara County

Diavolessa (which means “she-devil” in Italian) isn’t a grape, it Tre Anelli’s name for a proprietary red blend.  The 2010 Diavolessa consists of mostly Petite Sirah, along with some Mourvedre, Sangiovese and Tempranillo.  Meticulously combined to bring out the best characteristics of each varietal, the wine is deeply colored with aromas of bright red fruits that lead to enticing flavors of black cherry, cola and black raspberry.  This complex beauty evolves in the glass, so if you are patient enough to let it breathe you will be rewarded with hints of dark chocolate and espresso.  Diavolessa’s balanced acidity and well integrated tannins make it incredibly food friendly.  How about beef tenderloin with rosemary gorgonzola or pappardelle with lamb ragù?  Or go with a tried and true local menu like Santa Maria style tri-tip topped with salsa fresca and pinquito beans.

76% Petite Sirah, 14% Mourvedre, 5% Sangiovese, 5% Tempranillo

2008 Diavolessa Santa Barbara County

2008 Diavolessa Santa Barbara County

An old saying goes “the devil is in the details” – case in point is Tre Anelli’s painstakingly created red blend called Diavolessa (which means “she-devil” in Italian, just in case you were wondering).  Two of the beloved grapes of Piedmont, Dolcetto and Barbera, make up more than half of this proprietary blend which also includes Petite Sirah and Zinfandel.  Meticulously tasted over many months, carefully blended to bring out the best of each varietal and then bottle aged, this wine was a labor of love.  Diavolessa slides smoothly across your palate with flavors of cranberry, tart cherry, raspberry and hints of cinnamon and cigar box.  Balanced acidity and tannins combined with enticing flavors make Diavolessa incredibly food friendly.  Try some paired with hard cheeses, tomato-based sauces, spicy dishes, barbecued meat.  How about a charcuterie plate and a Margherita pizza?   You can always say “the devil made me do it”!
