True Grape: So easy to fall in love (with wine) in Verona, Italy

True Grape: So easy to fall in love (with wine) in Verona, Italy | World of Web & Tech | Scoop.it

It’s appropriate that the country producing both the greatest quantity and greatest variety of wine in the world should also host the globe’s largest wine show.

Over 4,200 wineries and 140,000 wine lovers gathered last week in the literary home of Romeo and Juliet, which seems fitting as the event is frequently billed as “another love story in Verona.”

What follow are some Italian grape varietals that you may not have heard of, but your palate is sure to be rewarded by making the effort to seek out these wines.

Lacrima di Morro d'Alba

The name means teardrop and the grape is found in the central east coast region of Le Marche. Typical aromas of roses with wild strawberries and a beautiful juicy vinous character. Used to produce still red wines, sweet wines and unique and delicious sparkling.

Pecorino

Mostly found in Le Marche and Abruzzo regions resulting in white wines with fresh and delicate aromas, full on the palate with mineral notes, some fresh herbs and citrus.

Elisabetta Tosi's insight:

Verona is a very special experience in the Italian world of wine: in a few kilometers, you can have all the wines - red, white, rosé, sparkling, still, sweet - from both native and international grapes you can wish to drink...

All.

Basics of Italian Wine and Food Pairings

Basics of Italian Wine and Food Pairings | World of Web & Tech | Scoop.it
Sometimes opposites attract, but not always with wine and food. It’s not necessary to always get to mixed up into “what must be drunk with what” according to some wine aficionado’s.  Still, it’s important to remember to always match similar flavors and textures and make sure the intensity of the wine contributes to the flavor of the dish…not over-power it.First, match wine with foods that have similar richness and texture. Think about what is going to bring out the characteristics of both. Balance tastes. Remember that salty and sour tastes in food will make wines taste milder (fruitier and less acidic), whereas most sweet and savory tastes make wines taste stronger (drier and more astringent).Always try to balance the acidity of the food to the wine. The wine should always be just as sweet, or sweeter than what you’re eating.Light, Medium and Full-bodied wines: When you are cooking, remember that light body wines like Pinot Grigio or Soave go well with steamed, lightly sauteed, or poached foods. Medium and full-bodied wines like Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Brunello or Barolo go better with grilled, roasted, or baked dishes that have intense flavors. Poultry: Game birds such quail, turkey, duck, and squab have earthy flavors that are more robust than chicken. Because of this, you should pair them with wines that can pick up those characteristics of spice and earth. A beautifully balanced Amarone pairs extremely nicely.Fish and Seafood: There is a myth that seafood must be paired with white wine – but it does not always have to be.Consider the region.
