Wrapping up my (at home) wine tour of Sicily with a Nero d’Avola and our twist on lasagna. Not bad for a middle of the week evening.
I’ve had more luck finding wife-approved Chardonnay since the start of 2020 than in the previous 2 years, and the 2019 River Road Un-Oaked Chardonnay helped continue the trend.
I’ve been getting to try grapes that are new to me (or ones that I have rarely tried) more often of late, and if the Perricone is any indication–I need to do it more often.
Will this be the oaked Chardonnay that my wife finally loves? No. No it will not. But that doesn’t mean there’s not merit to the wine.
We may not be able to spend time with friends and family right now, but I think i know what food and wine pairing I want once we can.
A refreshing wine for the warmer months, the 2018 Tasca d’Almerita Grillo is a great value.
