It really is unfortunate that I saw white flakes falling from the sky as I swept this morning. Well, I was thinking of something else rather than “unfortunate”, but you know what I mean. Enough already! How about some sun and warmth! Last I recall we are going on the final week of April.
Not too consistent temp wise around here, not that it ever is. But we for our part try to be, and this weekend we are featuring what we expect to be consistently good specials. Such as Lemon Sole from the North Atlantic, Swordfish and Certified Angus Beef Flat Iron Steaks. It might be chilly out but warm in Fratello’s, and we’d love to see ya’!
On our wine feature board I continue to run with the Cab from Joel Gott, the Sangiovese blend, Siena, from Ferrari-Carano, the Portada red blend from Portugal, and the Malbec blend from Argentina, Coleccion from Cuvelier. I like all these wines – the Portada is made with grapes indigenous to Portugal yet made in more of an international style, the Cabernet from Joel Gott is sourced from fruit from Napa and elsewhere in the state, Siena offers great fruit and acidity and is a wonderful food or by itself wine, and the wine by Cuvelier has it all – body, fruit and structure. Speaking of Joel Gott, I had the opportunity to meet and chat with him this week, and I’m glad to report that not only are his wines good but he is really a decent fellow. I should receive more of the wine La Massa this week, which is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot and Alicante and is rated 92 points by Robert Parker. Medium to full bodied, this wine provides a taste of a so called “Super Tuscan” at
a more affordable cost. And lastly, for those in the know, there might be some “Locations” wine available this weekend as well, by the bottle at this point, and from more than one “Location”. Just sayin”
We hope you are well, and “unfortunately” I have to say warm, and we hope to see you soon. Thanks for all your support.
