Wine with Your Wings?

| January 20, 2013

Whether you are going to serve your rowdy football crowd out of plastic Solo cups, or glass, wine can provide a tasty alternative for this year’s Super Bowl party. Typically Super Bowl conjures images of Bud Light commercials and six packs, but why not change it up with some tasty wines to compliment your Sunday fare?

SaladiniFor your friends that want something a bit less heavy than a beer, Saladini Pilastri Falerio dei Colli Ascolini 2011 ($8.99) is a great and inexpensive choice. Thankfully its price is not as long as its name and this organically grown white blend, from the LeMarche region of Italy is a great compliment to spicy guacamole and fish tacos.

 

remole

Frescobaldi Remole 2010 ($11.00) is an easy drinking Sangiovese/Cabernet blend from central Tuscany and is the perfect pizza wine! With spicy impressions of black pepper and licorice, laden with fruit, this sits beautifully alongside a bowl of chili or lasagna.

attems pinot grigio

 

Are spicy Buffalo wings your thing? Attems Pinot Grigio 2011 IGT ($16.00) with its backbone of acidity will cut through the grease and a burst of tropical fruit and a 13% alcohol level will help temper the flames if your wings are more atomic than mild.

Have fun and please drink responsibly.
