    Our tasting this week will feature wines from the Piedmont region in northwest Italy, along the border with Switzerland and France. Almost completely surrounded by the Alps, it’s known for its mountains and glaciers. The best-known wines from the region include Barolo and Barbaresco, both made from the Nebbiolo grape. Nebbiolo is derived from the word “Nebbia” meaning “fog” and referring to the “bloom” or dust on the grape during harvest. The grape is fuzzy like the pinot noir grape and difficult to manage. Nebbiolo makes up 8% of the grape production in the Piedmont region, but that represents the largest production of the grape in the world. Our wines from the Piedmont on Friday will include Eredi Barbera d’Asti, Reva Dolcetto d’Alba, Scarzello Nebbiolo d’Alba, and Crotin Monferrato Bianco Plisun

    Along with these wines, we will be sampling Pecorino Romano. This raw, organic sheep’s milk cheese comes to us from Sias Dairy in Italy. A cheese that is believed to have been around for two thousand years or more, it’s still made using a process similar to the traditional, very-old-school methods. It was originally made near Rome, it takes its name from that city, and was a staple of the diet of Roman armies. Now made primarily in Sardinia, Pecorino Romano is a flaky and crumbly cheese with a pale yellow color and a very sharp, salty taste. It’s an excellent grating cheese that is often heaped over pasta dishes, breads and casseroles instead of its less salty and less sharp cousin, Parmesan.

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    Our journey through the wines and cheeses of Italy stops in Veneto, where we will be sampling a selection of Venetian wines. This highly productive wine region in northeastern Italy region is especially known for the sparkling Prosecco, named after the village where the grape originated, and made from the glera grape. While Prosecco may be the most well-known, a variety of wines and grapes are found here, including Verdiso, Bianchetta, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir. One of the other predominant and most important wines of the region is Soave, Prosecco’s non-sparkling cousin, made from the garganega grape. On Friday, we’ll be featuring Bottega Vinaia Pinot Grigio, Pizzolato Pinot Grigio, Bertani Valpolicella, Pizzolato Prosecco.

    Along with those wines, we will be featuring another excellent Italian cheese, Grana Padano. Produced beginning in the eleventh century in the Po River Valley of northern Italy, this cheese remains a very popular alternative to its cousin Parmigiano Reggiano. The name “grana” comes from the grainy consistency or texture it has to go along with its sweet and nutty flavor. Made from cow’s milk, it is aged for up to two years or slightly more, developing stronger and more complex flavors and more crumbly texture as it ages. Try it as an alternative to either Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano on your next bowl of risotto or plate of pasta.
