Postin’ time!!! Haha :) So…on my recent trip to Tuscany, Italy I took a food tour of Florence and a wine tasting was part of that tour!
The first was my favorite, Lambrusco, a mild sparkling wine. Super good, not to sweet and a pretty low alcohol content. Very easy to drink and would have been great with some pasta ;) This wine was a DOC, meaning it’s a certified traditional wine using grapes from the surrounding area.
Next was another DOC wine, Montepluciano D’Asruzzo. This one was… good but… not very easy to drink. I like my wine just a touch bit sweet and this wasn’t very sweet lol
Then the 3rd, Le Corti, was a lot like the 2nd but a bit higher alcohol content and a touch bit sweeter. Good wine!
The fourth was a very epic wine…EPIC. It’s a dessert wine that you often dip biscotti into and its super-duper sweet! It’s also got a very nutty flavor because of the wood used in the process of making it and a nice golden color. This wine is 1998 Via Santo Del Chiante that is also a DOC. Again.. this first wine was my favorite but if you go to italy I recommend trying a dessert wine like this! It’s very unique and quite delicious!
With the biscotti!!!
(Wines are VERY confusing and I apologies if I got any of the names wrong!)
