Wining and designing
This is not a blend, but 100% Casavecchia. Upon opening, the volcanic smokiness is immediately fragrant, and slightly perfumed. Dark berries, tannins, and minerals woven together. Delicious winter red!🍷 Also 👍 the very graphic designy label ...
Had the rest of the bottle with broiled salmon, cashew olive vinaigrette, wild mushrooms and polenta. It became veeeery mellow on day 2. Even better! — 2 days ago
Gattinara is a new region for me. It’s in Northern Piedmont, with smaller output than nearby Langhe, but produces Nebbiolo with a similar “nervy” acidity. This bottle is great, with earthy red fruit and brick red color. Still young, but tasty. Had it with coq au vin 🇫🇷✖️🇮🇹 — 22 days ago
Very good Rioja reserva! Sour red cherry berry, and oaky smoky 🍒😚💨 Had it with roasted garlic chicken thighs, arugula, and smashed potatoes with lemon, chives and sour cream. Pairing was a little off - it was too bold and flavorful for the dish, but certainly not bad! — 6 days ago
