2010 Amorosa Bella Brut Russian River Valley On Cellars of Sonoma Tuesday Live

What a great night virtual tasting Amorosa Bella Sparkling Brut with Scott from Cellars of Sonoma, winery owner Charlyn and my good friend wine blogger Dezel from VA. Really getting into the crispness of sparkling wines, their versatility with salads or fresh fruit, and I even paired it with fresh holiday fudge.

The wine tonight was a true treat. Beautiful salmon color in the glass combined with the fruit characteristics of my 2 favorite Russian River Valley grapes..... Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Pear, red berries, citrus and the perfect amount of acidity makes this Sparkling Brut one of the best produced.

Charlyn challenged the viewers to incorporate sparkling wine into their everyday routine along with a variety of foods. Always up for a challenge and using some of her suggestions, I was amazed at the potato chip pairing. Salty and acidic worked perfect. Fresh berries (raspberry, cherry, strawberry) with the crispness of the wine was so refreshing. Huge fan of this wine.

Scott and Charlyn thanks for the great evening and the introduction to Amorosa Bella Sparkling Brut. A very special treat.
