Nicole's Ex-Boyfriend Re-Incarnated as a Tuscan Sangiovese #normal

It is Friday! Time for a particularly #spicy LCBO & U!! πŸ˜ŒπŸ’‹πŸŒΆ Fattoria Del Cerro Rosso di Toscana, $17.95 in vintages.

hello!!!

hello!!!

Full disclosure: this is Nicole and I totally sell this wine. πŸ™‹ I was so beyond excited to see it freshly released in the LCBO. Are you ready for all the things?! 1. LOVE! πŸ’ The character on this wine, Manero, a local vintner who is also a famous practical-joke playing clown in Tuscany πŸ€Ήβ€β™‚οΈ (#pardon) looks exactly like my once lover @lodewijkv (he approves this message :). Seriously though creep his page! My little Manero!

We love you, Lo!Β 

We love you, Lo! 

This wine reminds me so much of him. He is tall and lean, but light hearted, strange and interesting. πŸ™ He can meet your parents almost (he never did! Only once on the phone!), but also teach you to play the laser harp (actually a thing!) and drive across Canada with you screaming Dutch techno and wearing each other's clothes (he is quite little in hips but big in personality!). 🏹🎼🎨😽 Associating a wine or food with a special person is basically the best ever. In another world we would be wed producing extremely lean, wild babies, but in this world we are playing practical jokes on each others' hearts and occasionally sharing a bowl of soon tofu at Buk Chang Dong in koreatown. 🍳🍲 This wine is made in the hilly town of Montalcino from a blend of Sangiovese for red fruit and spice and Merlot for sexy smooth body #same. πŸ˜‚πŸ‡ The poor man's Brunello, rosso di montalcino - when it is all Sangiovese - or Toscana when there is some merlot, is such a rad wine to know about. Wild herbs, dense cherry fruit leather, mushrooms on rotting bark and the dirty towel of a new love. πŸŒ±πŸ’πŸ„πŸ€Ί Fresh and gross in all the right places. Beautiful acidity of Sangiovese = primo food pairing with pizza, pasta, bumble and adventure. Is there a wine that reminds you of someone special? Tell us the story!!!! #lcboandu #alwayscastingspells#nicoleslovers πŸ’•βœ¨πŸ’•πŸ˜‚πŸ’•βœ¨πŸ’•βœ¨πŸ₯‚
