“fog”. During harvest time it is said that fog sets
into the region. Nebbiolo wines can be aged but
for this Summer try to purchase a young version.
Flavors of this young wine include licorice, mulberries,
tar, spice, fresh herbs and leather. Great
foods to pair with this wine include slow roasted
meats (pork and beef), red pasta dishes and
heavy cheeses like Feta or Goat Cheese.
Sangiovese – Sangiovese is an Italian
grape that is primarily used to produce big
heavy wines such as Brunello di Montalcino or
“Super Tuscan” wines. But young Sangiovese
part a taste of fresh strawberries and spice.
Some food pairings for this wine would be any
grilled meats, pizza, pasta with red sauces
and aged cheese like Pecorino.
The trend in Rosé wine has exploded
like crazy over the past year or so and continues
to dominate the markets right now.
Remember, Rosé wine is not White Zinfandel.
Read below to see what I mean. Another
trend this Summer seems to be Prosecco.
Yes, a sparkling wine for the Summer! See
why you need to try one today.
Rosé – Rosé wine can come from any type
of red grape but will be a pink color because the
skins have been removed from the process to
produce a sweeter wine than the varietal would
be with the skins left on. In other words, a Rosé
made from Cabernet grapes would be drier than a
Rosé made from Grenache grapes. Not all Rosés
are sweet, but they do range from sweet to semisweet
to semi-dry, but rarely are ultra dry. Great
foods for Rosés are rice dishes, light pasta dishes,
light seafood dishes and light salads.
Prosecco – Prosecco is a sparkling wine
known primarily from Italy. It’s their equivalent
of Champagne in France. This is a bub-
peach and apricot. This wine is perfect to
pair with spicy Asian dishes, creamy Italian
sauce dishes, salty meats like Prosciutto or
bacon and even light fruity salads.
