Jessica's Notes:

Pop the "Sampagnino" and bring on the sparkles!!!  This old-school frizzante wine from Emilia Romagna Italy is a beautiful organic indigenous blend from the 5th generation winemaker Leonard Bulli that the locals line up for.  Not only does this gulpable fizz come from a long tradition of making old-age sparkling wine, but their down-to-earth story is also worth reading while drinking this gem.  Most of us think of prosecco when it comes to an Italian sparkling, but this is an exciting break from the norm.  The freshly floral aromatics with lemony citrus notes and slight saline finish will blow away any negative vibes and bring in happiness.  Share a toast with these clean refreshing bubbles or just simply enjoy with charcuterie in the shade.  Have a lovely fizz-filled summer with some Bulli "Sampagnino" Colli Frizzante! 

What's Cooking?

Charcuterie, burrata with peaches and a side of crostini, shellfish dishes, or just with some friends on the patio. 

What do I like to drink?

I have an eternal love for Italian wine.  I love the culture so much I got married there and spent our honeymoon touring some of the best wineries in northern Italy.  Italy is simply located in the perfect place on Earth for the flourishing of wine grapes. There is certainly an Italian wine for any person's taste.  Some of my favorite wine regions are Piedmont, Friuli, Lombardy, and Veneto.  I can never turn down a beautiful artist labeled Vietti wine. They produce a large range of wines made from indigenous grape varieties of Piemonte.  Some of my favorites are pairing the Roero Arneis with hors d’oeuvres, grilled steak, and Nebbiolo, or the Barbera d’Alba with some pasta to name a few.
