Saturday Wine's Alright for Buying

Are we sure this was supposed to run on a Saturday?

Hey, product people, Jimmy here. You must not have gotten my voicemails and your IM status is set to "Unavailable for Jimmy", so I'll just have to ask here in the sale: doesn't this deal seem too good to run on a Saturday?

You tell me "a fine 2008 Montepulciano from the Campobasso area at 40% off" and I'll tell you "sounds like a Monday deal to me". Yet here's the Tor del Colle Biferno Riserva six-pack parked on a Saturday. That's gotta be a mistake, right?

Or wait a minute. Maybe this is a reward for the diehards who check Wine.Woot on a Saturday. Maybe you wanted to put this deal here so the weekday noobs, lookie-loos, and droppers-by couldn't snatch it all up. Pretty crafty, product guys. I should've known you guys would be on top of it.

OK, then, cool. Remind me to replace this note with a real writeup before the sale runs on Saturday, OK?

Features

2008 Tor del Colle Riserva, Biferno 750ml 6-Pack

The grapes for this Riserva bottling are hand-harvested from several vineyard sources around the town of Campobasso. After fermentation and pressing, the wine spends over 12 months in oak casks, followed by another year of aging in stainless-steel tanks. This 2008 offering is medium- to full-bodied, revealing attractively earthy aromatics along with classic Montepulciano notes of plum, dried cherry, tobacco and light game. With more of the same on the palate, it is well proportioned with surprising length and fine-grained tannins.

Given its Old World heritage, it is not surprising that the Tor del Colle Biferno Riserva pairs so well with full-flavored Italian fare, especially pasta dishes with lamb, beef or pork. Feathered game is also an ideal match, as are rustic stews, sausages and virtually anything from the grill. Consider recipes that include earthy ingredients such as mushrooms and herbs, or that highlight the wine’s intrinsic fruit characteristics by incorporating fresh or dried plums and cherries. This wine also works well with cheese, most notably Fontina, Teleggio and Pecorino.
