DON'T BLACK OUT!
Drop your shopping and have a respite with us! We're launching a "Red Friday" revolt all weekend long.
Come rejuvenate with wine tasting, $5 fresh pasta (goes toward any red wine purchase), and relaxing chat with friends in the tasting room, open 11 to 7, Friday through Sunday. (Food until 5.)
PRIMITIVO, AHEAD OF THE BUNCH!
We think our 2012 vintage promises our best reds yet. And Nello has chosen Primitivo, our most popular red, to lead the way. Seems fitting because its name means "early one," given because compared to many other varieties Primitivo's fruit ripens first.
NELLO OLIVO PRIMITIVO '12
Our 2012 Primitivo (close cousin of the ever-popular Zinfandel) is once again an exciting concentration of jammy fruits. A smoky bouquet gives off highlights of caramel-covered berries. This wine is medium bodied and well balanced, which makes it easy-drinking by itself or with a favorite health-conscious meal. Pair it with almost anything, but best with grilled fish or chicken and lightly seasoned pasta dishes. Alc. 13.9%
