Summer is one of the times of the year where we enjoy our meals with family and friends. However, the same question always comes up: Which wine should we have? At Da Bruno, we've made a selection of wines that are sure to make you the sommelier of every event you attend. Let's take a look at them!
At Da Bruno, we have a special preference for two rosé wines that pair perfectly with our Italian gastronomy:
-2016 Aire de Protos: This is a suggestive wine with its own personality. It's a different rosé that very elegant, delicate and sensual. The Ribero del Duero is made entirely with tempranillo grapes and is perfect to pair with seafood, pasta, soft cheeses, blue fish or rice. The perfect temperature to serve it is 8º C (46º F).
- 2016 Aliaga Lágrima de Luna: This D.O. Navarra wine is made with Grenache grape and, as its name suggests, it's made at night. It has a pale pink color and very subtle aromas. It surprises the mouth with the delicacy of its fruity and floral nuances. It's best served at around 7º C (45º F).
White wine is probably the most asked for in summer. After all, it makes sense. It's cold, refreshing, and pairs well with most summer meals.
We especially recommend the 2013 Ossian verdejo. This is a very different wine that's ecological and created in the Montrachet style. It's certainly one of the best Spanish white wines. It is made with very old strains of Castilian white grape and boasts a very authentic flavor. It is recommended at a temperature of around 13º C (55º F).
If you don't think that summer is the right time to drink red wine, then you probably haven't tried the 2014 Botani Garnacha.
This Ronda wine, made with 100% Malagan garnacha, is known for the freshness of its flavor. It has an intense ruby color with some velvet reflections, a black fruit aroma and a very pleasant, fruity taste in the mouth. Ideally, it should be served at 17º C (63º F).
After this little tour of these great wines, all we ask is that you have a toast with us when you come visit us at Da Bruno. We'll be waiting for you with the perfect wine at the perfect temperature!
