I am the “Wife of a Wine Guy”. My husband Michael and his family have an Italian wine bar and restaurant named Skappo. A lot of wine goes through our household because we typically try a wine that Michael is considering to put on the wine list of the restaurant or we have a left over bottle from Skappo’s “wine by the glass” that has not been consumed fully.
I mentioned in a past post that on a weekly basis I would like to feature and write about the wines that Michael has brought home. I want to bring you behind the scenes of the wine tasting sessions with the “wife of a wine guy”.
I am not a wine expert like Michael. Before meeting him I was only able to say what I didn’t like (if it was vinegary!). Slowly I am learning and during our private “wine tastings” I play act like a kid and pretend to be a wine connoisseur. The problem is I like most, if not all wines, so I am not much of a critic!
What I know for sure is that we love wine in our house and it makes us happy!
|Wine:||Fattoria Le Pupille, Elisabetta Geppetti, 2010 Poggio Argentato (Tuscany)|
|Color:||Light white wine|
|Taste:||It is smooth and fruity with low acidity. It has hints of strawberries and peaches.|
|Smell:||sweet aroma with hints of strawberries and peaches|
|Comments:||This wine is a great stand alone wine or it is awesome with food. I had it with left over New Haven cheese pizza and it paired so well. It is super easy to drink and will please most palettes. It’s a nice table wine for every day.|
I really wish I had a way to let you share this glass with me right now. It is a truly delicious wine that I highly recommend.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
