wine friday: nerelo del bastardo.
This latest red was recommended by my new friend Jeff at our local Trader Joe’s, when I asked him for a good Italian wine. He passionately explained that Italian wine laws only allow a certain amount of wine to be used after aging in order to have a limited number of government issued neck labels. When these run out, the excess may only be sold as table wine even though the wine itself is the same.
And so we have Nerelo Del Bastardo, made from the “leftover” wine but still quite tasty. This one was a 2007.
$6.99 at Trader Joe’s.
