The beginning of any new year brings the obligatory new year’s resolutions. In 2017 we’ve decided to choose a resolution we can stick to; drink more wine. Look out for regular posts from our wine director Nathaniel Muñoz on everything from wine parings to buying guides. Cheers to 2017!
Cristo di Campobello Adenzia Rosso Sicily, Italy 2011
50% Nero d’Avola, 50% Syrah
CRUSHABILITY (scale is from 1-5 Roses)
The Cristo di Campobello is a richly complex medium-bodied red produced by the Bonetta family in Sicily. This beautiful pour will instantly transport you back to the Old World where you’ll immediately feel the salty, arid winds sweeping north over the Mediterranean Sea.
Your tastebuds will get a wonderful hint of ripe fruits and the notes of roast coffee and olives. This gorgeous wine is a pleasure to drink and a true testament to the hundreds of years the Bonetta’s have committed to cultivating the land of Agrigento, Sicily.
MATCH FROM OUR MENU
Grilled Italian Eggplant Tartine with feta, tomato cocoa jam, pine nuts, caper-mint pesto, & arugula.
The deep brooding dark fruit in this wine plays well with the roasted eggplant and tomato cocoa jam, while the brininess keeps pace with the caper-mint pesto and arugula.
Join us today and try this well-balanced pairing.
