Once it is poured into the proper glass, it’s time to evaluate and enjoy the #wine . Evaluating wine involves four basic steps – looking, swirling, smelling, and tasting. 🍷
Step 1 – Look. Begin by holding the wine glass up against a white background, such as a napkin or table cloth, to evaluate its color and clarity. #Redwines should range in color from deep purple to brick red. Red wines generally fade in color with age. White wines should range in color from lemon gold to golden amber. #Whitewines usually darken with age. If the wine is discolored or cloudy, the wine may be bad.
Step 2 – Swirl. Swirl the wine in your glass to aerate it and release its #aroma .
Step 3 – Smell. To properly smell your wine, put your nose in the glass and take a deep breath. Pay attention to what the wine smells like. Older wines should have subtler aromas than younger ones. Is the wine fruity? If so, what fruit does it smell like? Is it earthy or spicy?
Step 4 – Taste. To taste the wine, fill your mouth about ½ full and subtly swish the wine around. Moving the wine in your mouth should release its aroma and coat your mouth. Does tasting the wine confirm your interpretation of the wine’s bouquet?
I migliori vini italiani postati da @winememoir - Ada Nada is a small, family-run estate located in Treiso, a small town not far from Alba. The average age of the vines here is around 40 years, and they are tended to completely by hand, showing the utmost respect for the land and nature. This Elisa is a superb Bararesco with constantly evolving inflections. The wine stays for 18-20 months in large oak casks, followed by 6-8 months of bottle aging before being put on the market. It opens up with deeply perfumed bouquet of white rose and fresh berries in veraison, slowly settling into forest floor and farmyard. On the palate it strikes with extraordinary layered acids, exquisite blue fruits and wild hawthorne. Enveloped with filigree tannins, the finish echoes in profoundity. Plenty of life ahead to expect even more! What’s in your glass today for #winewednesday ? 🍕

Cheers to the last wine of the FF Food Pilgrimager! Then on to last-minute Thanksgiving suggestions! .
Incanto Prosecco $12.99 .
Prosecco is a relatively inexpensive sparkling white wine produced in Italy in the Veneto region. It is made out of prosecco (glera) grapes, but can also be a blend with other white grapes (only 15% can be "other grapes"). Partially due to its fermentation style (tank method), this delightful wine can be found for a fraction of the cost of its sister wine, Champagne. .
Did you know that prosecco is the wine from which bellinis are typically made? Yup. This magnum sized bottle is the perfect excuse to throw a Friendsgiving brunch! Or think ahead to Hanukkah & Christmas parties. .
Flavour profile: creamy texture with light, exuberant bubbles which dissipate quickly (so drink up!); notes of green apple, honeysuckle, & melon. .
Pairings: spicy charcuterie tray, salty cheeses such as Unexpected Cheddar & toscano. FONDUE. Serve this during your Thanksgiving cocktail hour.
This sophisticated sundae is perfect for a post-Thanksgiving feast. The tart cherries and red wine vinegar balance out the ice cream, so it's not too sweet. Recipe below. Need a dry red wine? We can help you out!
Recipe via @foodnetwork :
Yield: 8 servings
4 cups frozen cherries
1 cinnamon stick
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups dry red wine
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
Vanilla bean ice cream, for serving
Put a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the cherries, cinnamon stick, sugar and cornstarch and cook until the sugar starts to melt, about 1 minute. Add the wine, bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the wine has reduced and is slightly thickened, about 4 minutes.
Remove from the heat, remove the cinnamon stick and stir in the vinegar.
Scoop vanilla ice cream into bowls and top with the warm cherries and red wine sauce.
Another weekend, another tasting. We’ve got a grower Champagne on, followed by a few gorgeous Bordeaux’s. 🍷🍾
- Champagne Lamiable Extra Brut Grand Cru. 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, this bubbly beaut is fresh with subtle fruity aromas. Crisp and elegant. A great price for a quality champagne £39.95 .
- Les Oliviers Rouge, Laungedoc. This is the kind of wine that makes it hard not to drink a second bottle. Incredibly smooth and fruity with brilliant red fruit flavours. Better just take the case! £14.95 .
- Haut-Médoc Château Micalet, Famille Fédieu 2014. Finely balanced great value Médoc. Lightly oaked with hints of violet and mint. The cedar and spice hit in the finish and are left lingering in your mouth. An obvious choice for that rib of beef. £26.95 .
- Château Haut-Segottes Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2011. Earthy and powerful, full of tannin and acidity, it is sure to come alive with venison. This wine has already been a hit in the tasting, leave it a while and it will really show its true depth. £39.95 .
- Château Thibeaud-Maillet Pomerol 2012. Teasing fruit appears amongst the oak in this wine of pure nobility. Vineyard owner Roger Duroux considers this vintage as the best in his lifetime as a vigneron. £64.95
“…vite amata dalle api per la sua dolcezza…”
Il Fiano è il vitigno bianco della Campania!
Lo dice il nome, ad Avellino il Fiano cresce talmente bene che hanno istituito una DOCG nel 2003.
Il nostro fiano è di colore giallo paglierino, sbiadito, dall’odore gradevole e leggero, dal sapore fresco con retrogusto di nocciole tostate. #tenutaponte
