Anyways, for four weeks, we've been sampling four wines, each from a different region of Italy, and tasting them with foods that complement them. I've learned a little about color and consistency, but mostly I've just enjoyed tasting different wines from all over Italy.
Our course instructor, Alessandra, recommended Enoteca Ronchi as the place to go in Milan for great wine. I haven't checked it out yet, but I love their fully functional website and can't wait to shop there in person.
|Involtini di radicchio rosso e Montasio DOP|
Bigne di mortadella e Pistacchi DOP
|This bottle, from Campania, was seriously amazing. |
It was served with a Pecorino DOP from the region and honey.
I'm still dreaming about it. Sadly, it's apparently fairly difficult to get your hands on.
|Calcioni and Farro di Monteleone di Spoleto DOP|
