Cavicchioli Lambrusco Dolce

by J.T.

Y'all. It's really, really hot outside.

Thankfully, I've been in Colorado this week visiting family, so I've been spared a bit. But I'm headed back to Tennessee today, and I know what's waiting for me:

Humidity to the nth degree. 

Oh, southern summertime . . .

When it's hot outside and I need a little something boozy, I know just the cold beverage to reach for:

Cavicchioli Lambrusco Dolce


Tasting Notes

Served ice-cold, Lambrusco is the perfect drink to sip in the summer shade. Light-bodied  and bubbly, it's sweet and fruity, tasting of strawberries, raspberries, and cherries.

Price Point

You're going to love me for this: it's only $6.99.

Pairings

Think antipasti and cured meats: salami, pepperoni, prosciutto, cheese. Lambrusco and nibblesβ€”a great party combo!

McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Shiraz 2013

by J.T.

I love good wine. Especially good wine with a great value.

Which is why I've been a fan of McWilliam's Shiraz for years. Dry and fruit-forward, with raspberry, black cherry, plums, vanilla, and a touch of oak, this wine is a flavor powerhouse at a great value. Pair this with a nice gluten-free pizza from Publix (a discovery that has transformed my weekends... and maybe a few weeknights), and you've got a delicious Friday night ahead of you!

Pick up a bottle for only $7.99, and you'll see what I mean. If you've got a hankering for a meat-lovers pizza, this would pair just divinely.
