“…what a Grand Award demands above all is that a wine program reflect long-term commitment and a deep wine passion, embodied in a distinctive, customer-friendly approach. La Sirena expresses these virtues in full”
The “50 under $50” list offers great wines at a modest price. We take pride in finding high quality wines from various regions that are of value and not readily available in the marketplace.
Along with our wines by the glass program we offer an additional format of the “quartino”. A “quartino” is a small decanter that holds a quarter of a liter, basically one-third of a 750 ml bottle, or about a glass-and-a-half. The presentation of the wine is appealing and offers the flexibility of trying various wines.
In 2012 we decided to create some of our own wines by partnering with various producers in Italy. These wines will always be produced with indigenous grape varietals from specific regions and will change over time. “Bianco delle Sirene” is a Pecorino/Pinot Grigio blend. It exhibits tropical notes of passion fruit, green banana, grapefruit and citrus on the nose with undertones of sweet herbs and basil. “Rosso delle Sirene” is sixty percent Montepulciano di Abruzzo and forty percent Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose shows ripe cherries with vanilla and clove undertones. On the palate, the wine is well balanced with supple tannins that lead to a soft, smooth and polished finish.
In 2017 we partnered with Loredan Gasparini to make two new wines, Capo dell Sirene and Contessa dell Sirene. These wines have a classic French influence but the 100 % Italian wines that truly embody the soul of La Sirena.
In 2018 we have collaborated with with Leon Femfert of Fattoria Nittardi to produce our first Super Tuscan, Cinquantatre e Cinquanta. 53 & 50 celebrates LOVE, FAMILY and PASSION. It is a blend of 50 percent Sangiovese, 25 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 percent Petit Verdot and 5 percent Cabernet Franc. A Boreaux blend with the best that Toscana has to offer. If you must.
Capo, Contessa and Cinquatatre e Cinquanta are the best of the best and are our official “house wines” offered by the glass
