Being Naked and Unlitro
*** NAKED ***
From The MetroWines Current Events Desk:
New York Times reports a story from Lutz, Florida. The State has more than 34 nudist resorts
and claims 2.2 million visitors every year. "Nudists say their relationship to eating,
at home or in restaurants is better and healthier without all the clothing."
The Asheville School of Wine Has Been Asked for Comment:
"After repeated and varied testing, we can report that we have found no evidence
that wine is improved by consuming sans your clothes."
That said, we never miss an opportunity to pair wine with history and current events.
In that spirit, we are thinking a wine that is uncomplicated,
straight forward, somewhat sensual, versatile and well, natural.
Ampeleia Unlitro Toscana Rosso 2018
Blend of Grenache, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet and Mourvedre.
This Tuscan blend, bottled in liter, is made by winemaker, Elisabetta Foradori,
regarded for her work with organic and biodynamic, low sulfite methods.
Farming these grapes biodynamically, focusing on synergy between mankind and nature,
Foradori produces elegant and silky wines.
This red is clean, fresh and tasty with bright red fruit, flower and gentle spice flavors.
And Unlitro was just recommended by Eric Asimov in NYT!
(People say Eric is fully clothed when he tastes.)
