No worries, I did not fall in love with a woman. The Marta mentioned in the headline is my recommendation for the upcoming winter.
But first, sorry for the silence over the last couple of days. I was traveling, working, having fun with friends. Like the people abusing Glynsky Towers for accommodation, I dislike hotels a bit. Whenever I can, I stay with friends. Or as I call it: couch surfing. The usual deal is, they provide a mattress, futon, or guest bed, and I invite them out for dinner. Some of my hosts consider themselves a chef and prepare dinner. Then I provide wine and drinks at least.
On one of those couch surfing events we got to know Marta’s parents. And now I’d like to introduce her to you.
Her full name is Amarone Classico DOC Marta Galli. And this is what she looks like:
Marta comes from the La Ragose Winery, and you should give her – or any of her sisters – a new home.
Frederick Wildman is the US importer, and here is a retailer, Astor Wine & Spirits.
I mentioned Amarone a while back on diablog. And from La Ragose came my very first Amarone. It is one of the very best, and you can be certain, it is not adulterated. Which sadly has started to happen at other vineyards.
At 15-16% alcohol, for me Amarone is winter wine. Perfect for that evening in front of the fireplace, after dinner, with a cigar, some great music playing, staring into the flames, ignoring all troubles, and enjoying the good things in life.
And since “I’m not in Love” here is 10cc, perfect fireplace music:
