Introducing… our RED OF THE MONTH at Cellar on Greene! Look to your right as you walk in the door and BAM! there she is, beckoning…
Folks, this one is a winner! Awesome, awesome, awesome. I’ll take a backseat for a moment and allow Dama to speak for itself:
“Rich, earthy, striking red wine seeks passionate consumer for possible Long Term Relationship.
Me: notes of black cherry, vanilla, currants, cocoa and licorice. Loves food and pleasant company.
You: discerning, fun-loving, must appreciate a full body and like an earthy, dirty finish. Age, race, gender, and wallet size unimportant. Take me home today to experience all I have to offer!”
Some of you may remember this wine from about a year ago, when we poured it by the glass at Cellar for a brief, yet fulfilling time. I’m slightly perplexed as to why they’ve changed the bottle so much this year- there used to be a pretty woman’s silhouette painted in a nice purple watercolor on the label. I was pretty fond of it, and so was everyone else. But- the good news is, the wine is just as delicious, so I won’t dwell on it.
This is a must, especially for people who love Italian wines. I can say with certainty that I have been rendered speechless in the past when greeted with a truly amazing Italian bottle- the problem is, they have usually come with high price tags. Obviously, this can be said of any country. But if you’re like me, and you fell in love with a really pricey Italian wine that someone else paid for, and ever since then you’ve been saying to yourself- why can’t I find wine that good for less money?- TRY the Dama! It will remind you of WHY you liked that Italian wine so much. It’s juicy, earthy, perfect by itself and with food, deep and impressive. And it’s $19 a bottle!
