6 42° Maremma Toscana is a blend of six different grapes. Totally delicious with a bit of spiciness. Tried pairing it with cheese and chocolate – it works better as a standalone.
Wine things I learned yesterday: if a bottle of bubbly has a label that says “traditional method” (or the French equivalent), it means that the second fermentation takes place in the bottle itself, an art the Frenchies in Champagne perfected over centuries. This is why champagne and bubbly have big, thick corks.
