Today’s Deal ~ Ferghettina Brut Rosé Franciacorta 2013 (Lombardy, Italy)

With New Year’s Even just a few days away, Carpe Vino wants to be your “BUBBLES” connection!  Whether you’re a fan of sparkling wine or not, it’s only proper to celebrate the annual New Year’s EVE ball drop with a flute full of BUBBLES.  We’re simplifying the decision making and offering THREE DAYS of “BUBBLES” DEALS!  Here’s DEAL #3…

Ferghettina Brut Rosé Franciacorta 2013 (Lombardy, Italy) $60/retail 

TODAY $47.50/BOTTLE (single bottle) ONLY 12 BOTTLES AVAILABLE!!!



Our final BUBBLES deal highlights a wine region that we are sure many are not familiar with… “Franciacorta” a specific grape growing section within the Lombardy region of Italy.  Franciacorta was awarded DOCG status (Italy’s highest designation of quality) in 1995 and until recently was one of Italy’s best kept secrets.  Most think of only Prosecco when it comes to Italian sparkling wines and for money, it’s a great option.  That said, if you are looking for something resembling a true Champagne and produced using the “traditional method” (2nd fermentation in bottle, not tank) then Franciacorta is a sure-fire winner!

Ferghettina Brut Rose Franciacorta 2013 (Lombardy, Italy)$60/bottle, BUT TODAY ON SALE FOR ONLY $47.50/bottle on a single bottle. -12 bottles available

This wine is stunning both with its unique-shaped glass bottle packaging, to the delicious and elegant juice inside!  Why do we have it on sale?!?  Well, we recently offered this in a tasting and it sold really, really well!  Due its successful sales, we ordered a couple extra cases for our inventory.  The problem we found was its $60 price tag was too expensive to be sold by-the-glass within the restaurant.  Couple that with the fact most people are unfamiliar with the winery and/or growing region, so consumers weren’t just grabbing it off the shelf.  SO – we are offering our last TWELVE BOTTLES at a 20% discount and best price you will find.  This is truly a phenomenal wine that YOU deserve this New Year’s Eve!  Don’t believe me, here are what the critics have to say:

“Wine Enthusiast” – 92 Points: “Savory and vibrant, this bright polished sparkler delivers aromas and flavors of red cherry, crushed raspberry, Rennet apple, tangy nectarine and bread crust. Refreshing acidity and a lively, refined perlage lift the finish.”

“Wine Spectator” – 90 Points: “Well-cut acidity structures this bold sparkling rosé, wrapped in expressive flavors of raspberry, pomegranate, hibiscus and blood orange granita. Drink now through 2021.”

DEAL #2 (Yesterday)

Couple Bottles Remain

Schramsberg Brut Rose 2012 (California) MAGNUM Regular Price $95/Bottle




If it were me…I’d just click BUY NOW before these bad boys are gone.  Simply put, this is one of the best deals we have had all year, not only on sparkling wine, but ALL WINES!  There are not many opportunities to purchase this caliber of wine, in this large format bottle, at this amazing price.  This 2012 Schramsberg Brut Rose MAGNUM was specifically “held back” by the winery to be released around the holidays as a “special treat!”  Carpe Vino was one of the first to jump at the opportunity and has purchased/sold nearly 28 cases in little less than a month.  Like all good things/deals, they come to an end and we are down to our last 18 bottles!!!

2012 Schrmasberg Brut Rose (California) MAGNUM $95/bottle, BUT TODAY ON SALE FOR ONLY $75/bottle on a single bottle.

Sale price valid on single bottle purchases.  Customers may order as many bottles as they wish, until inventory is depleted.

“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 94 Points – “Another big-time winner, and one of their larger cuvées of just over 9,000 cases is the 2012 Brut Rosé. This is a blend of 76% Pinot Noir and 24% Chardonnay, of which 33% was barrel fermented. This wine is ripe, broad, savory, shows tiny bubbles, comes across fresh with kirsch-like aromatics and flavors. It’s dry, medium-bodied, zesty and exuberant. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.”
