The wines and food from Italian Night!

CIMG2179

We had a few friends over this weekend for an Italian themed dinner. Food and wine were in abundance, and a good time was had by all. I won’t spend too much time on the food, but it consisted of a nice antipasti with Parma ham, sopresseta, salami, mozzarella and arrugula; a seafood bouillabaisse (which

We just pulled the last bottle of the 2002 Beringer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon out of the cellar after a few years of almost pulling the cork. It seemed about time. The occasion was our anniversary, not that we needed a special occasion to drink good wine but why not. I cooked up some beef

Repost – An Amazing Tasting of Gaja Wines at Gasbarro’s on Federal Hill

Wow!

I’m seriously tempted to just leave it at that, because this wine tasting was something special. Where to start? How about world class wines all around, and I do mean world class. Add in an intimate setting inside Gasbarro’s on Federal Hill and it gets better. Finally, toss in a representative from one of

Time for two more wines to review, and and we’ll stay in Italy for both of these. The red is a Brunello from Tuscany in central Italy. The white is from Campania in southern Italy. We liked both. Here are the notes:

Dining Review of L’Osteria in Cranston, RI – An Italian Restaurant Gem

0605131800d

We’ve mentioned L’Osteria before in our ramblings, and were just there again this past Saturday night. It is a small, cozy Italian restaurant surrounded by others in the Knightsville section of Cranston. L’Osteria is our favorite of the bunch. We’ve been there thirty times or more, and have no plans to stop any time soon.

Yet Another Excellent 2005 Bordeaux and a Passable Cab

Time for two more reds to talk about. The foray into the 2005 Bordeaux stock continues and we revisit a usually good and inexpensive staple. I can say it is becoming apparent that the hoopla surrounding the 2005 Bordeaux vintage was justified.
