Cantine Federiciane Monteleone Penisola Sorrentina Gragnano 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Gragnano, the frizzante red that comes from the town of the same name on the Sorrento Peninsula outside of Naples. Drunk young and served chilled, Gragnano has a touch of sweetness, a smoky finish, and a slight effervescence that cuts the fattiness of cheese and oil.

Pleasant mouth feel. Goes well with light pizza.

We ordered this on a whim at a restaurant in Sausalito. Apparently, we chose wisely. The owner of the restaurant came out and poured for us, telling us that his father would drink a bottle everyday, a tradition he said he tried to keep, and that if we didn't like it, he'd take it home. It went well with each of our meals, ranging from seafood to pheasant ravioli, and we've been looking for a local carrier ever since.

Ok, full disclosure: I've only had the 2004 of this wine. But it was phenomenal! Very much like lambrusco, but somehow richer, left a bit of something on the back of the tongue (tannin is too strong of a word). Full of fruit, dry but not overtly so. Tiny, tiny bubbles that make the overall effect sharper rather than burpy, like champagne. So so good!! If you like lambrusco, please give this a try!

This was our first foray into the sparkling reds, we asked the waiter to recommend a local red while we were in Sorrento. I haven't found it in North America yet, and sadly the taste has been forgotten. But we do remember enjoying it immensely.

A distinctive sparkling red wine made from the Piedirosso grape. Dry and bubbly on the palate, this shows dark berry fruit - cherries and red currants - and a slight tannic finish. Best enjoyed with a slight chill, this is a perfect match with pizza.

A sparkling red wine made from the Piedirosso grape variety. Dry on the palate, bubbly with dark berry fruit - cherries and red currants - and a slight tannic finish. Best enjoyed with a slight chill and a perfect match with any pizza.
