- Wedding: October 2013
We are having a DW wedding, and the venue have offered us a choice of various wines. The white ones are fine, but the reds are hard for us to pick. I googled and found some information on them and then translated it into English. So excuse any odd phrasing; that’s not me! I’d love your help on which one would be most crowd pleasing.
Red Wine 1
AGING: in French oak barrels of 500 liters for 9 months, then in bottles for another 9 months.
TASTE: intense ruby red color. Olfactory impact and persistent, fruity red ripe and spicy. We also recognize plum jam, cherry liqueur, herbs and blond tobacco. Vanilla finish. Dry, hot, fresh and quite tannic. An elegant wine: the tannins are soft and freshness is very pleasant. The balance shows an excellent fusion of taste characters. The remarkable correspondence nose and mouth, as well as the taste-olfactory persistence. Just the support of Barrique, not at all obvious.
PAIRINGS: wine that lends itself to preparations of meat lasagne, tagliatelle bolognese, pasta with beans and bottom rind, meat ravioli in red sauce. It goes also to veal baked and grilled meat.
Red wine 2
The Tarquinia Rosato, fresh and easy to drink, made from Sangiovese and Montepulciano. Bright cherry red color, the nose is persistent, fruity and slightly floral. Remember berries such as raspberries, blueberries, strawberries. In the mouth it is quite dry, cool and slightly tannic.
To end with the fragrant Syrah intense fruit and ripe which highlights a blackberry and a hint of black pepper and the new white Macchia Sacra, from Fiano grapes. Yellow-gold, perfumes are intense and elegant, ranging from hazelnuts to honey, to more complex notes salty and mineral (flint). The taste is full-bodied, with ripe fruit, savory, great harmony. Note the intense aroma and flavor of hazelnut
