Each Wednesday join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
"Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of September I will be digging into my favorite wine region in the world, Piemonte. Tucked up into the northwest corner of Italy, Piemonte has made a name for itself behind the Nebbiolo grape and it’s representatives in Barolo and Barbaresco. To kick off the fall at Marsh House, we will dabble in lesser known vineyards for Nebbiolo and in lesser known grape varietals found throughout Piemonte."
This week featuring: Monsecco Pelizzane Ghemme, Piemonte 2011
Ghemme is a small region found in the hills of Alto Piemonte. Here we find some of the northernmost reaches of the Nebbiolo grape and often the greatest value. These wines are more giving at a younger age, bursting with bright red fruit and a dried rose petal floral aroma. At $15/glass, Monsecco does not disappoint and offers a tempting gateway into all that Piemonte has to offer.
