This Sunday we will be tasting two lovely Italian wines.
2010 Botromagno Gravina ($11)
60% Grecco, 40% Malvasia
Gravina is one of the oldest viticultural zones in Puglia; that the Botromagno co-op is the only producer in this long-recognized DOC is testament to the quality of their wines. Botromagno Gravina is a dry, delicate white composed of 60% Greco and 40% Malvasia. Abundant aromas of peach, white currant, and fresh wildflowers introduce a similarly generous palate. Enjoy with oysters, shellfish, and a wide array of Asian cuisines.
2011 Erste + Nueu Kaltereresee Leuchternburg ($13)
A light bodied red with lots of cherry flavors and soft tannins from the german speaking part of the Tyrolian Alps.
This is a single vineyard wine made from Venatsch (Schiava) the smaller berried cousin to the Edelvenatch.
