“America is falling in love with Negroamaro”: Paolo at Lidia’s Italy Pittsburgh

lidia bastianich restaurantLast Thursday’s Cantele wine dinner at Lidia’s Italy Pittsburgh was a smashing success, writes Paolo, who’s still on the road in the U.S.

“Everyone loved how clean the wines are, especially the Chardonnay because it’s ‘unoaked.’”

“The Primitivo was also well received because it’s not sweet or overly ripe like so many fashionable wines today. Many Primitivos and Zinfandels have such high levels of residual sugar that they are easy to drink but hard to pair with food because ultimately they are too sweet.”

But it was the Salice Salentino that made the biggest splash of the night.

A special thanks to Jim Hutton, regional manager for Vias (who imports Cantele wines in the U.S.) and to John Gratner, sales rep for distributor The Wine Merchant, who organized the event.
