LoHud Wine of the Week
Scinniri 2011 Etna Rosso: Has the mouth-feel of pinot noir and tastes of dried cranberries, cedar, sage and red currant. Region: Sicily, Italy. Price: $22. Goes with: Turkey dinner, pork chops with black plums. Why I chose it: It’s an interesting alternative to pinot noir that delivers complexity at a great price. It’s a very versatile wine that can start off cocktail hour and stand up to a complex meal.

For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Joe Printz of Grape D’Vine in Sparkill..
