Varietal: Bordeaux Blend
Sub-Region: Bolgheri
Region: Tuscany
Color: Red
Country/State: Italy
90 Wine Enthusiast (5/1/2019) "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this offers aromas of violet, dark berry, leather and underbrush. On the savory palate, velvety tannins support blackberry jam, tobacco and star anise. Enjoy through 2024."
91 James Suckling (11/7/2019) "Fresh currants and herbs on the nose, following through to a full body, round and savory tannins and just hints of jam, spices and licorice. Richer style here. Try after 2020."
92 Wine Advocate (5/16/2019) "There is a touch of extra softness and richness that reflects the warm and dry conditions of this vintage. The 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Varvara brings plump and rich primary fruit with blackberry, black cherry or plum at the front. There is a note of sweetness here that gives the wine a very accessible and immediate personality that would work perfectly with a Tuscan wild boar sauce over tagliatelle or a simple ragu. The blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Some 70,000 bottles were made. Drink Date: 2019 - 2025"

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue. We are 200 feet to the west of Ulta Cosmetics and around 200 yards southeast of the Hollywood Palms Cinema. The layout of the center is a bit confusing so just give us a call if you need directions.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
