During my last visit to New York City, my friends put together a proper Italian meal for me – complete with Italian wine from Eataly 😋
The first was a 2015 Tamí Grillo from Sicily. This wine is farmed organically, and is fermented naturally and aged for six months in stainless steel.
The wine is cloudy yellow in color and has a medium aroma. It’s a full bodied white that has some notes of honey, flowers, and minerality. It’s nicely balanced and enjoyable. You can find it online for about $17. 3/5.
Then we switched to a red – a 2015 La Kíuva Arnad Monjovet. It’s from the Valle d’Aosta region in Northern Italy.
It’s actually light red in color and has a strong aroma with notes of red fruit and spice. It’s smooth and balanced with tannins. The finish is on the bitter side. I saw it online for about $19. Great for the price. 3.5/5.
I enjoyed both wines with pasta, charcuterie, and great friends. Not too shabby for a NYC welcome. 🗽🍎
