Spitzada with Pork ft. MU Sangiovese

When my parents arrived in the United States from Italy, they were immediately befriended by a young
couple who lived next door. Frances and my mother fast became best friends and four years later when I
was born Aunty Francis and Uncle George became my Godparents. My parents gave me the most beautiful gift in choosing Aunty Francis as my Godmother. She has been a devoted, faithful and ever present influence in my life. Her daughter, my cousin, Kathy has also been like one of my sisters all of my
life. The friendship and love that my mother and Aunty Francis shared has always been an inspiration to me, through years, time and distance their love, respect and care for each other always kept them connected and close. After my parents moved to Texas, Aunty Francis and her husband Pug, a gentle, generous and loving man often visited just to spend time together and to celebrate anniversaries or special occasions. It is the memory of those beautiful times shared that continue to bring us all comfort now that mommy, daddy, Uncle George and Pug are all in heaven.

Martin Ulisse Sangiovese

Made from 100% Sangiovese, the main varietal in Chianti, this Old World red is a true Italian classic. Medium bodied with solid tannins, this fruit forward wine is sexy yet rustic with dark fruits and berries. Pleasant acidity and a lingering finish allows this to be a solid table wine. Pairs well with pastas, Italian marinara, meat sauces, pork and red meat.
