I needed this weekend. I had an insane week and I desperately needed this weekend. Of course, the moment you need a weekend **poof** it’s gone. And inevitably that is what happened my weekend. But I won’t waste your time with my sob story. Because, frankly that isn’t the type of whine you are looking for…instead, let’s discuss David’s latest selection for Wine of the Week.
It is the Cantine Sant’Agata Na Vota Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato, 2007, Piedmont, Italy. But you can call it Na Vota for short. This is complex red wine, and I mean that in a good way! David describes the flavor as “Cranberry, a little rose petal on the nose and some earthy notes.” The wine pairs well with spicy foods and can even stand up to game, making it a great option as the weather cools and our diets become richer. You can pick up a bottle for around $22.
