Le Macchiole

A wine a day (for a week): from Tuscany, Lombardia, Campania

Monday: "Sassabruna Monteregio di Massa Marittima Doc 2010" -Rocca di Montemassi . From his new estate Rocca di Montemassi in Tuscany, Zonin realized this "strong" blend: sangiovese (of course), with a touch of kindness (merlot) and a bit of spicing (sirah). An international-style wine, to pair with grilled meat and a fireplace (mainly).

Tuesday; Tenuta Vicario "Fiano di Avellino Docg 2012" - Grotta del Sole. What a delightful white wine. Fragrant, floreal, smooth, full. Pastry, white chocolate, almonds, rose water, looks like a palatial cake as the renowned pastiera napoletana. A very yummy wine.
