Our 2015 Vintage Charbono grapes spent 5 days on their skins, cold soaking in order to extract all the flavor, structure and body of the fruit prior to being fermented dry. Charbono’s very dark, thick skins tend to impart a fair amount of Tannin. Our Wine Maker, Eric Lyman, made this wine in a light to medium bodied style. Traditional pairing with Charbono takes us to Italy. And when one thinks of traditional Italian flavors, pizza tends to be top of mind, as it encompasses so many variations of salt dominant flavors, along with appealing textures that call for luxurious sips to cut through the richness of the cheese and intensity of the sauce. For example, a thin crust covered with rich tomato sauce, garlic infused olive oil, Kalamata olives, anchovies, capers, goat cheese and arugula paired with the bold fruit of our Charbono will make the fruit come to the forefront of the palate, softening the tannin and providing harmony to an incredible meal.
