Introducing three new organic wines from Jasci & Marchesani!

We are excited to begin offering the wines of Jasci & Marchesani to the wine lovers in Ontario, straight from the Abruzzo region in central Italy. The Jasci family made the bold decision to go organic 40 years ago, and have been building on their success ever since – winning Winery of the Year in 2014 in Luca Maroni’s “Best Italian Wines.”

Jasci & Marchesani 2016 Trebbiano D’Abruzzo DOC Organic $15.99/bottle 91 Points Luca Maroni 

Trebbiano is a very old grape variety dating back to Roman times.  It produces refreshing, light-bodied white wines which are dry with hints of citrus and mineral notes.  The Trebbiano from Jasci is elegant and delicate with hints of mature yellow fruit, Spanish Broom flowers, and vanilla. Pleasant with good body, saltiness, and freshness, with final notes of white-pulp fruit and bitter almonds. Best with the following Abruzzese cuisine; Stuffed calamari, lumaconi pasta with fresh tomatoes, mixed Adriatic seafood grill.


Jasci & Marchesani 2016 Montepulciano D’Abruzzo DOC Organic $15.99/bottle 91 Points Luca Maroni 

The grape Montepulciano is a close relative to Sangiovese, it produces wines that are a deep purple color with gentle tannins, and are meant to be enjoyed young. Montepulciano D’Abruzzo are excellent food fines.  Jasci’s is persistent with hints of mature red fruits, jams, and slight notes of cinnamon and vanilla. Balanced and harmonious with a touch of pleasant tannins. Best with the following Abruzzese cuisine: Potato gnocchi, ‘sagnette e fagiolo’ (pasta and beans) lamb, stuffed rabbit.


Jasci & Marchesani 2016 Eco Pecorino DOC Superiore Organic $25.99/bottle 93 Points Luca Maroni 

Pecorino is one of those newly hip Italian varietals for which there is a growing resurgence of interest, but has been around for centuries.  Possibly named after the sheep that graze on the fruit in the Marche region (pecora = sheep), Pecorino shares it’s name with the famous cheese made from Ewe’s milk.  Crisp with tight structure and a long finish,  wines made form this gape have citrus notes, good acidity, some floral notes and crisp mineral tomes.  Jasci & Marchesani’s is an exceptional example, pale yellow, almost golden. Fruity, earthy with a dry, pleasant, and lingering finish. Best with the following Abruzzese cuisine: starters and fish-based main courses.
