Day 1 – Troon Vineyard 2020 Frizzante Metodo Ancestrale, Applegate Valley, Kubli Bench
Proscuitto cups with roasted tomato, oregano, sweet balsamic, and burrata
When I researched this wine I came across a tasting note from Craig Camp of Troon vineyard. He said for him the best pairing with this wine was pizza, which makes sense as this wine is Sangiovese based and Craig professes a love for Lambrusco Secco and pizza.
I had tasted this wine at the vineyard, loved it, and left with a bottle. It seemed the right way to kick off our 12 days of wine celebration, bubbles that are not pretentious! Of course, I wanted to do more than a pizza bite, I mean, we are casual here, but we still try to be a little classy. I created a sort of upscale pizza cup.
