TreRé ‘Curéna’ Pignoletto Frizzante
Bologna is the food capital of Italy. It offers myriad must-try food and wine experiences. One is this Frizzante Pignoletto served with copious amounts of cured meats. What could be better than hanging at the Old Market in the Quadrilatero, watching people continuously stroll while sipping this fizzily refreshing wine and savoring artisanal salumi? There’s a simple decadence to the pairing. Such is supping in Italy.
TreRé is a mother/son run winery about an hour south of Bologna. Theirs is a countryside winery with vines planted on rustic, sloping, limestone soils. The fun and allure of this wine is its fizz. It offers more gentle bubbles than than Prosecco, resulting in a softer, effervescent quaffer that eases summer temperatures. The fruit is forward and ripe, yet it finishes with a bone-dry crispness. It’s a wine perfect for summer weather and pool pairings.
