Wine Tasting

andrewsangle.com/?p=1338

It seems these days that the most famous and prestigious wines coming from the Bolgheri region of Tuscany are all “Aia” wines....i.e. Sassicaia, Ornellaia etc.etc. There is no disputing the extreme quality of these majestic reds, but with prices reaching or exceeding $200/bottle these days how can you enjoy them on a “regular” basis?

In comes my “Aia” math as I like to call it.

We have had HUGE success with the Greppicaia from I Greppi ever since it burst on the scene a few vintages ago. Mostly because the quality is already super high and the pricing super low.

I did a little back of the envelope math and based on today’s promotional price we are offering on the Greppicaia here’s how it measures up to the other “Aias”

1 Bottle 2009 Sassicaia = 3.88 Bottles of Greppicaia

1 Bottle 2009 Ornellaia = 4.11 Bottles of Greppicaia

Some nice math I would say!!!

I want to see an “Aia” wine as a regular wine at your house and this is the wine to do it.

All my best,
Andrew

Greppicaia I Greppi 2007 (93WE/92WS) {#335651} $45.00

"... Full and round, showing velvety tannins and a long aftertaste of grilled meat, smoky wood and dark fruits. This is nearly always excellent...92." WS 9/10.

"Some obvious oak tones of spice and tobacco will integrate with more time in the bottle to give more space to the ripe fruit, mineral and chocolate notes that are already present in very good measure. The wine shows muscle and power with a determined, firm finish...93 points." WE 12/10.
