Braised Pork Shoulder


Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo 2016

Wonderful full-bodied wine. Served it with braised pork cheek and it was a home run. Lots of red fruit with nice mineral notes. Will buy it whenever I see it. — 12 days ago

Villa Diamante

Vigna della Congregazione Campania Fiano 2012

2021/4/21-24 with pork shoulder Neapolitan alla genovese, busciata di tuminia cacio e pepe, etc. Pours a yellow gold. This was wonderful on day 1, with lots of bitter almond, beeswax and stone fruit. On subsequent days it felt a little blowsy - perhaps this bottle at this age didn’t need the extra air. — 6 months ago

Succés Vinícola

Patxanga Conca de Barberà Rosé Blend 2020

Recommended for your next 90 degree summer day - get the pork shoulder smoking, get the kids in the pool, crack this open, relentlessly crush, and enjoy the appealing, faintly funky nose, juicy watermelon/strawberry vibe, pleasant acidity, and total lack of complexity. — 2 months ago

Radici Taurasi Aglianico 2008

2021/4/21-22 with pork shoulder Neapolitan alla genovese, busciata di tuminia cacio e pepe, etc. Rich with black cherry, iron and spice, but a nice backbone of acid keeping this fresh and tannin giving structure. I am always suspicious of native Italian varieties that see barriques, but it wasn’t intrusive here - whether due to a deft touch, time or both. — 6 months ago

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Hey, Brunello!

🍷This Sangiovese-based wine was a lovely complement to roasted pork shoulder on toast from @barlagrassa

👁 This wine is medium ruby.

👃 On the nose this wine has medium intensity of developing aromas including notes of blackberry bramble, plum, fig, black cherry, anise, licorice, fennel, white pepper, leather, clove, nutmeg, cedar, and earth.

👄 On the palate this wine is dry, it has medium(+) acidity, a full body, high alcohol, medium(+) tannins and medium(+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. It has a medium(+) finish.

In sum, this is a delicious wine with a strong structure and great concentration of aromas and flavors. It could benefit with further aging to fully integrate all dimensions and add complexity.
