Due Italiani Wine Gift Basket
Wine lovers will love this classy Italian basket! Due Italiani Wine Gift Basket, Or Two Italians Wine Gift Basket, comes with two bottles of Italian red wine, almonds, caramel popcorn, brie (or another cheese spread) and other assorted snacks. The treats arrive in a brown wooden carrier with handles that has many decorative uses or can house toiletries or other items that need to be stored neatly.
There are many types of Italian wine that can be included in this basket such as Valpolicella, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Chianti, Barolo, Valtellina, Montelpulciano, Negroamarao and more!
Grandpa Chacha’s Rosso Salento is a classic wine choice for this gift basket. This wine has a delicate, fruity palate with tannins, that will give your recipients the flavor of the “old country”. Grandpa Chacha’s Rosso Salento can be paired with a breaded slow cooked lamb or a mildly spicy antipasto. This Home Style wine is made from Negromaro and Primitivo grapes from the Puglia region of Southern Italy. Both Primitivo and Negromaro grapes are known for yielding inky wines; Primitivo wines are tannic and Negromaro wines are earthy.
A few other fabulous Italian red wine choices are: Brunello Montalcino and Chianti Classico, which both pair well with beef dishes; Valtellina Superiore and Barolo, which can be served with traditional Italian dishes like pasta and risotto; and Montelpulciano d’Abruzzo and Montecucco Sangiovese, which, like Grandpa Chacha’s Rosso Salento, pairs well with lamb.
La Vendemmia Sangiovese is an up and coming Italian red wine that your recipients will love. Sangiovese wines are wonderful Tuscan wines that have high tannins and acidity. These wines typically have tempting herbal aromas and dark fruit flavors such as cherry and blackberry. These flavors make for a rich palate that pairs well with many foods. Try pairing La Vendemmia Sangiovese with roasted duck, wild boar or a rare filet mignon. La Vendemmia Sangiovese also stands up well to rich, sauces like red tomato sauce.
