New Year’s Day Lunch

2014 — time to celebrate the prettiest label and best white wine of the year.

2010 Spungola Bellaria

Ah, yes, you are absolutely right; the year is only 14 hours old.  Nonetheless, this lovely wine from the Pignoletto grape in Emilia-Romagna was a delight for my first lunch of the year.  It consisted of three slices of my multigrain bread (all that remained of the last loaf), pan-fried in olive oil, and topped with fresh Chanterelles mushrooms, sautéed in the usual manner, i.e.. #1 olive oil, #2 vegetable stock, # 3 white wine, finished with salt, pepper, herbs and parsley.  I saved the last bite for the camera and you, my faithful readers.  Thank you, Matt, at The Wine Bottega in Boston, for the wine recommendation..
