It's never too early to plan for Valentine's Day, y'all.
I'm not trying to rush you—I know you just put away your Christmas decorations. But whether you've got one special someone or a bunch of people you want to show your love to, the best way to do it is through food. Because, honestly, who doesn't like food?
Yeah. That's what I thought.
The Italians know a thing or two about love and food, which is probably why their food is synonymous with a meal shared with loved ones. Whether it's a family-style meal or a candlelight dinner, there's probably going to be something sauced in red with lots and lots of garlic. Mmm...
So what should you pair with this dinner?
With hints of black cherry, licorice, nutmeg, black pepper, Seghesio's Old Vine Zinfandel is a spicy-sweet combo that would pair excellently with any Italian meal you've got in mind (come on, what's more romantic than a Lady & the Tramp moment?). There's a nice hit of acid in this, a perfect complement to tomato-based dishes.
Why "Old Vine," you ask? Seghesio's not playing around: their old vine wines are at least 50 years old, which gives you some rich, complex flavors, and tannins that lead to a nice, long finish. It's a lovely, lovely wine.
You can pick up a bottle here for $34.99.
