Carmenere. Gato Negro 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

An intense, inky red, the Nero d'Avola seductively reveals a gorgeous perfume of blackberry liqueur, white flowers, vanilla, and a hint of figs delivered in a leather basket. On the palate, this wine is opulent, full-bodied and viscous, with a great intensity, superb purity, and a layered, seamless personality that would convince most tasters that this is New World personified. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to hearty stews and roasted lamb and beef.

One of best Bonarda in Oltrepo' pavese ! You can start with a really fresh 2009 till a really serious 2006. The wine becomes less fizzy and bubbling more concentrated. Fresh red fruits are predominant. It' very good with starters and pasta, expecially filled pasta as ravioli ( very typical in the Oltrepo') in a good beef broth or with a stew sauce. Also ideal for bollito misto ( boiled beef, chicken, salami, tongue...). The most interesting in my opinion is a really"natural" flavour is wine made with modern technology but in ancient style !

This wine is very inexpensive. With that being said it is a lot better than a lot of other wines that sell for more. It's not too oak-ey and not too full bodied. It is a great wine for the price. We regularlybuy this for $6.00.

A bottle is only $3.99, so it is no bad for daily wine.

Couldn't finish the bottle, ended up throwing it out. Didn't pair it with food though.

Champagne Moutard is a traditional family run business situated in the picturesque village of Buxeuil, France. The vineyards are located in the southern part of Champagne, on the sunny slopes of the Cotes des Bar. Very old cellar books relate their activity as vine growers back to the 17th century. Region: France / Champagne / Eau de Vie Maker : Francois Moutard Notes : Abundance of ripe dark fruit on the nose with intense expressions of prunes on the palate, with a rich, long aftertaste. ABV : 45%

Pale green appley, grapefruity Grüner with a lively intermingling of crisp acidity and stony minerality. Finishes with a lingering touch of white smoke. Just ideal with green salads, anytime of year!

Warm and fruity, this medium-bodied blend is packed with succulent red berry fruit flavors that are nicely complemented by subtle notes of tobacco and spice. Gentle tannins on the palate lead into a fresh fruity finish.
