Afternoon turned into evening when Matt came home. We hung on the porch for a bit…with two new friends
I cannot believe we have a new orange cat that lives next door. We are fast friends!!
El Leon was one, and a bottle of vino was #2. This bottle was from Zonin’s Rocca di Montemassi, an Italian estate in Tuscany. Gosh I would love to go to Tuscany. I just love that word!! I like to think this was Tuscany in a bottle. The company also owns Barboursville here in Cville and a friend who works there sent me a handful of their wines. This one was 100% Sangiovese, a bit smoky and herby.
They brought shrimp, which Tate cooked in a garlic + butter sauce, along with salad, which Faith assembled. I toasted up some of Matt’s bread while he chilled!
F+T helped us polish off the first wine, so we opened a second – from the same bunch. Matt and I both loved this Ripasso even more – it was smoother with lots of cherry flavor and went really well with dinner.
Couldn’t get enough of this delicious dinner!
For dessert we had bakery sweets – scuffins and Savannah bars. GAH they are so good!!
