Me and Riccardo desided to meet up one afternoon at his trattoria for some wine and pizza and have a relaxing afternoon. Said and done, we met up. The deal for this was also that we both broght one bottle of wine each around a pricelevel. Great idea.
I brought with me VALDICAVA Rosso di Montalcino 2016 and Riccardo came with BRESSAN Pinot Nero 2012. VALDICAVA is one of the most famous producers in Montalcino and when they started they sold their grapes to Biondi Santi, but after a while they desided to start make the own wines insted. They produce Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino and Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano. But Rosso di Montalcino is not produced every year. They focus on Brunello di Montalcino and if they have grapes left and feel like it, then they produce Rosso di Montalcino. Haven´t you tried VALDICAVA yet, I recommend to do so ASAP, it´s going to be something extra.
As food Riccardo made two different pizzas and they tasted wounderful and together with these wines, we had a very relaxed and fun afternoon together.
