This trio is too good too share. Be good to yourself and save these three: Barrel Road Red Blend (16.99) from California; Bervini 1955 Spumante Rose ($18,99) and Bervini 1955 Prosecco($18.99), both from Italy.
Barrel Road wine was aged in small batches in bourbon barrels. Grapes were sourced from quality vineyards on California’s Central Coast. The result is amazing. Enticing aromas of vanilla, caramel and spice open to rich red fruit, dark chocolate, rich plum and dark spices on the finish.
The Bergamo family that crafts the Prosecco believes “Nature is the master of all human arts.” Grapes for this wine begins in the vineyards where grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks. The tiny, excited bubbles exude pear and citrus. It is delicate and dry on the palate that makes this a perfect accompaniment to seafood dishes.
The Spumante Rose selection is “Pretty in Pink” and tastes delicious. The sparkler is crafted from Glera and Roboso varietals and offers an avalanche of dancing bubbles with raspberry and rose fragrances and fruit forward flavor and balanced acidity. Pour this chilled Asian dishes.
This time of year selfishness can be a virtue!
