Food Pairings for Carmenere. Gato Negro
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 !

sweet/dry finish- fruitier
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.
External Reviews for Carmenere. Gato Negro
Gato Negro Chardonnay is pale yellow in color. The wine has aromas of fresh fruit, specifically bananas and good intensity. On the palate it is fruity, very ripe, good acidity, lending it a fresh pleasant finish.
Floral aromas of violets and rose petals dance with wild strawberries on the nose of this wine. The mouthfeel, silky and refined, brightens with ripe chokeberry and currant, while touches of pipe tobacco and worn leather round out the sip. French and American oak make a lasting impression, leaving this wine with a balanced finish of toasted spices and refined tannins.- Winery Vineyard Source: Russian River ValleyMontereyClarksburg Barrel Program: 10 months in French and American Oak Wine pH: 3.67Wine Acidity: 0.53g/100mlAlcohol:13.5%
Loire, FranceDomaine des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre is a white wine gem of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley of France. Domaine des Vieux Pruniers is situated a mere 2.5 miles from Sancerre, in the village of Bu, known for its steep, amphitheater-like vineyards, where some of the hillsides approach 65 gradients, and prized for its limestone-rich soils. Christian Thirot-Fournier and his wife tend to their roughly 10 hectares of vines, including 7 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc planted to chalky limestone soils. Together they raise the wine from start to finish, from growing the grapes to bottling the wines. They are moving toward a more "sustainable" viticulture regime, and no herbicides are used for the majority of their parcels. Vieux Pruniers Sancerre is a pale yellow in color with crisp acidity. Medium in body, it is a clean, minerally, citrusy, racy style of Sancerre, with aromas of citrus, floral notes and stone. It offers clean flavors of lime, nectarine, orange zest, pear and mineral notes. The wine was aged for several months on its fine lees. It is long, clean and refreshing on the finish.Enjoy Vieux Pruniers Sancerre over the next 3-4 years with grilled salmon, fried oysters, sushi, chicken salad and goat cheese.
The Gato Negro Cab Sav has a nice spicinesses with cherry and plum flavours. The tannins are still quite prominent so I expect that aging it a couple of years would be beneficial. I liked this wine,
Elegant Chardonnay with notes of oak and vanilla balancing a ripe grapes and mild spice on the palate.

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.
