I purchased the Boccalino wine back in May at Enoteca Vino Nostro. (http://mferraro73.tumblr.com/post/86667854043/enoteca-vino-nostro-wine-class-my-friend-karen) I asked Maria, the sales associate, which white wine would be smooth and creamy, maybe aged in oak? She said Italian wines aren’t really like that but recommended the Boccalino as something that would be easier to handle than the Vermentino wines I’ve tried in the past. Funny thing is that when I researched this wine online, it said it was the “midweek wine for when you don’t really want to think about wine.” So let’s see what this mystery wine actually tastes like.
My friend Karen and I were excited to attend the first Wine Class at Enoteca Vino Nostro (www.enotecavinonostro.com) during the week. They spared no expense with the spread they offered; italian meats, cheeses, olive oil, of course, and a spicy sausage, bean and fennel dish. I have described the wines on their own as well as paired some of them with the delicious foods, to see how the wine might change. Since the cheeses weren’t labeled I’ve done my best to describe them in the pairings.
