May 29nd, Dinner with the Winemaker Virtual Meeting
The theme for this week is the Aglianico 2016. Aglianico is a specialty of Campania and Basilicata in the hinterland of Naples in Italy. It makes firm red wines with a real flavor that is somehow more mineral than animal or vegetable. Yet, they do not lack fruit and have a great structure that promises a long and generally rather glorious life. Aglianico's high tannin and acidity, and its evident ability to age have inspired some to call it the 'Barolo of the south'.
Ours is grown in the Texas high plains outside of Brownfield. It has an enveloping nose of blueberry tart, sour cherry, and crushed rock that carries to the broad palate - a little roasted hazelnut chiming in. The fruit feels rounded and lush but held in check by pulsing acidity and fine-grained tannin. This wine is perfect for Italian cuisine, and that is what we will have this coming Friday. Whether you order or make your pizza or pasta, join us to celebrate life and this wine May 29th at 6 pm. If you wish to prepare pasta, we have a special sauce in our Website under Recipes (Emilio's Meat Sauce). If you want a pizza but don't want to make the dough and go through the lengthy process of rising, proofing, etc. We have a recipe using flatbread that works particularly well, and it is super easy to make. Look for Emilio's Lazy Pizza under Recipes. If you are interested in this wine, we have available a special discount for only this week as a two bottle package. Look for the Bundle: Aglianico in our Web store. The price for Club Members is $46 for the two bottles of this wine. Non-club Members price: $57.50 for the bundle.
