Spring has sprung at Petraia and we’ve got wine on the brain.
FOR ONTARIO RESIDENTS: A pre-summer shipment of a few hundred bottles of our 2014 red, “ETERE” (Italian for “ether”), is on its way. It’s a fresh, reasonably priced red without sulphites added, that is ready to drink now. See the tasting notes below. Price in Canadian dollars will be approximately $28.50* a bottle. Production was just 108 cases, so orders will be limited to 24 bottles.
Our consulting oenologist, Federico Cerelli, provided us with the following tasting notes on the 2014 Etere (80% Sangiovese, 20% Rebo):
Clean and precise on the nose with strawberry notes from the Rebo, black currents from the Sangiovese, and a spicy background that characterizes all Petraia’s reds. On the palate silky tannins and substantial acidity that produce a pleasing balance. Not too aggressive in spite of its young age. Not long but quite full.
Previously these shipments were handled by Marcel Rethore, mostly as a favour to us. We’re grateful to Marcel for all he did to get our wine to you. We’re pleased to announce that Primaia wines will now be distributed in Ontario by Mark Cuff at The Living Vine. For more than a decade Mark has been a pioneer in the representation of premium biodynamic, organic and natural wines from some of the world’s iconic producers. Check out his absorbing site http://www.thelivingvine.ca/ and the Petraia profile http://www.thelivingvine.ca/la-petraia.html.
If you would like some Etere for the summer please contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org. For those of you who have already placed your order, it will be included in the shipment to Mark and he will be in touch when it arrives. As always we will try to get some wine to everyone who wants it.
Our 2014 white, this year called “PERSUE”, should be ready to release towards the end of June in time for a fall shipment.
FOR OUR CLIENTS IN THE REST OF CANADA, THE U.S. AND THE REST OF THE WORLD: Please contact us at email@example.com for direct sales and shipping. For those of you who have already ordered wine, we will be in touch with shipping details within the next couple of weeks.
