Pomorosso Barbera d' Asti (2)

A Perfect Pair

Finally! Something that we can pair with our meals of polenta with sausages and mushrooms.

The difficulty of finding a perfect pairing isn't well documented enough. When you have a strict diet of polenta with sausages and mushrooms, for example, it isn't easy to find a wine to go with your meals. But finally, FINALLY, that wine has arrived.

This 2008 Pomorosso Barbera d' Asti is described as pairing well with "pasta in rich meat sauce, polenta with sausages and mushrooms, and red meat dishes such as roasted game, filet mignon and roast beef." See! There it is! Right in their list of pairings: Polenta with sausages and mushrooms!

There's just something about the fragrances of ripe cherries and blackberries and notes of cherry liqueur, chocolate, vanilla, and espresso that brings out the most of every meal of polenta with sausages and mushrooms. We can't quite put our finger on it, but it works wonders, and we haven't had a single meal of polenta with sausages and mushrooms that's been the same since.
