Ciao {FIRST_NAME}
 
The red wine you've been waiting for, 2014 Grande Riserva, now available for purchasegrr
Grande Riserva, as the name implies, represents the utmost and very best efforts of all that we do from the vineyard to the winery. In making this limited quantity wine, we used the finest and oldest Montepulciano, Petit Verdot and Sagrantino grapes, harvested at optimal ripeness and then triple sorted to create a decadent, powerful wine with a focused expression of Raffaldini Vineyards. We applied the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate the grapes' natural flavors and aromas. Finally, we placed the grapes in oak fermenters to further deepen the profile and age the wine in the best oak barrels available.

Less than 75 cases of this wine are available at $55 per bottle. Purchase limits are one case per person for wine club members and six bottles per person for the general public.

Raffaldini is Proud to be the Official Wine Sponsor of Piedmont Opera

Donizetti’s bel canto comedy, The Elixir of Love is as charming as it is funny. Nemorino, is a likeable but hopeless romantic who has fallen in love with the bold and quick-witted Adina. She isn’t won over by his pleas of love and things get worse when she has an offer of marriage from the self-important Sergeant Belcore. When a dubious salesman, Dulcamara, rolls into town he offers Nemorino what seems like the perfect solution.
