GREAT PICNIC WINES FROM ITALY AND SPAIN!
Cooperativa Valli Unité "Bianchino" NV - ORGANICALLY GROWN
Country: ITALY / Region: PIEDMONT / Appellation: PIEDMONT / Varietal(s): CORTESE --- This light, dry, refreshing white comes from a small cooperative founded by four families who decided to fight industrialization by combining their properties, with the shared goal of keeping natural methods first and foremost in their winemaking. Made from the cortese grape, this is fresh and clean with lots of bright, chalky citrus fruit. Naturally made, it offers up a touch of earthiness lending it a delicate character perfect for summer sipping. Perfect for picnic fare (tuna sandwiches, light salads, cheese plates), or just sipping by itself poolside.
Zekor Garnacha Navarra DO 2015
Country: SPAIN / Region: NAVARRA / Appellation: NAVARRA DO / Varietal(s): GARNACHA --- Zekor is the name for a young bull (pictured on the label) in the Navarra region of Spain. This delicious young garnacha comes from high altitude plantings near Pamplona, site of the famed running of the bulls. Medium-bodied, this has luxurious aromas of red berries and creamy morello cherries, all tied together with sweet spices and delicate hints of vanilla. A touch of smoky blackcurrant leads to a sweet licorice finish. Great with grilled chicken with corn, avocado, and smoked-paprika dressing.
