WTN: The Pefect Wine - Colombera & Garella Bramaterra

by Rahsaan » Sun Dec 17, 2017 12:45 am

Of course not in the absolute sense. But coming home late for dinner after hanging too long and drinking too much Glühwein at a friend's holiday fest, the dinner wine needed to be delicious and unfussy.

Up steps the 2011 Colombera & Garella Bramaterra Cascina Cottignano. With a very little bit of air it quickly rounds into form and shows enough character to keep me interested but also enough frank fruit personality that I could see popping this with ease for non-geek guests. (At least those who can handle a touch of structure) Regardless, that is a perfect wine.

No surprise it was a splendid match for the roasted oyster mushroom and radicchio pizza. Dark tart bitter and linear but also not afraid to throw soft generosity into the mid-palate from time to time. Not a bad blend. Savory, sweet, floral and mineral. What a lovely combination!
