2011 Dry Rose, A summer specialty
A light bodied wine with brilliant ruby color, dark cherry characteristics, subtle flavors of tart apples and a soft finish. This wine is the initial rose wine produced by Casa Larga’s founder, Mr. Colaruotolo, created to be reminiscent of wines produced from his family’s vineyard in Italy. 
 
This wine pairs well with grilled anchovies, pork or shrimp, steamed crab, barbecue, parmesan cheese, egg dishes, green salads, prosciutto and melon, strawberries and raspberries and summer picnic fair.
 
$8.99 per bottle
 
2009 Oak Reserve Pinot Noir, 100 cases produced
A medium bodied Pinot Noir with a dry, ripe finish and flavors of dark cherry, vanilla, and raspberries with a slight hint of smoke. It pairs well with grilled tuna, veal chops or salmon, sautéed greens, lasagna, aged goat cheese, tart cherries and tomatoes or tomatoe sauces. 
 
Oak Reserve Pinot Noir
$18.99 per bottle
 
2009 Pinot Noir
This is a very fruit-forward pinot, with berry fruit and dark cherries. A slight hint of oak gives it a  wonderful complexity and a rich mouth feel. Pair it with mushroom risotto and mushroom sauces, grilled sausages or scallops, Brie or Gruyere cheeses, and vegetables like beets, eggplant, and even fennel!
 
 
2009 Pinot Noir
$14.99 per bottle
 
Tapestry
This light bodied red wine gets its color from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The wine is made in a semi-dry rose style and has generous cranberry and raspberry flavors and a mild tannin finish.  The complex aromas suggest dark fruits and light oak. Excellent with roasted lamb shank or honey glazed ham.
 
$8.99 per bottle
 
Red Sangria, White Sangria
These light-bodied, fruity wines can be served chilled or over ice with fresh fruit. They pair well with fruit, light summer fare, pepperjack cheese, fried calamari, spicy meatballs, or raspberry vinegrette salad with beans and fruit salads.  
 
$8.99 per 750 ml bottle
