I’ve recently gotten back from a fabulous week in the Parma district of Italy. In spite of the fact that my fundamental justification being there was to play various shows with my band, Cactus Rose, I accepted the open door to test the neighborhood admission and specifically the wines of the district. The advertiser who I was managing had recently revealed to me that in this district of Italy, light bubbly wines both white – bianco and red – rosso are the favored backup to nearby food sources and this ended up being the case wherever we went.
Red frizzante wines especially Lambrusco are swallowed here in such amount that they’re tongue in cheek named as Italian pop and to my extraordinary astonishment they function admirably. Perhaps it’s the environment – with a normal temperature which is between 30 – 35 degrees c in the week I was in Parma – a lightweight and invigorating vino absolutely is the thing to get done. In case you’re drinking white wine you will for the most part get inquired as to whether you might want prosecco or Still wine and at celebrations and festivities of neighborhood food like the Tortelli ( a heavenly ravioli style stuffed pasta presented with a lot of Parmesan cheddar) celebration we were taken to as visitors there’s frequently no decision. It’s Lambrusco or Prosecco and that is it. The wines additionally are privately created so there is little point in suggesting a particular brand, as you would perhaps think that its elusive it outside the nearby area.
Another feature of our visit was a gig we played at a fantastic eatery/setting right external Parma in Santa Lucia di Medesano. The owner Alberto Cataldi and his great spouse have as of late quit the pressing factor of running a café in Parma itself for easy street in the mountains at La Cantina dei Suanati, which they run together. We were blessed to receive some astounding matured Parma Ham and Salami with a scope of genuine cheeses from the space and everything was washed down with numerous containers of Lambrusco served in conventional coated dirt cups – Alberto – a performer himself kidded about Italian pop. As the sun went down and the fireflies moved in the trees around the Cantina Lambrusco was the ideal drink and we had a truly important evening. Make certain to go there on the off chance that you are ever around there.
