The Romance of Italian Wine

Post image

We’re not saying that Italy is the most romantic country but a leisurely Italian dinner inspires a lot of passionate feelings in us, about our love of cheese if nothing else.

Our new Weekender features amazing Italian wines that will lasts from Friday Happy Hour until it’s time to beat the Sunday Scaries.

Invite your favorite person over for an unforgettable meal and try all three!

Lini Lambrusca Rosato: These lively pink bubbles are dying to be paired with fresh or grilled oysters or a creamy burrata drizzled with a smoky, spicy sauce and crusty bread.

Tratturi Primitivo di Salento: Tratturi’s ripe red fruit and dry finish are a perfect match for your favorite pizza or simple pasta with red sauce. You can never go wrong with Margarita or pasta Arrabiata.

Aurora Piedmont Barbera: Barbera is a wine for robust dishes. Try a classic Secondi with intense flavors like Ossobuco, marinated hanger steak, or a mushroom risotto.

To cap off your Italian meal in a truly spectacular way, the nutty spice of Monteverdi Nocino liqueur pairs beautifully with classic desserts like Tiramisu or Zabaglione.
