Enjoy the amazing Food Network Store

Do any of you just love the food network as much as I do? I'm constantly mesmerized by all the wonderful food and wine they present on a daily basis on the many great programs they have on television. Recently I made a trip passed the online store to see what gifts they would have for this upcoming holiday season and boy was I impressed. They have the most amazing selection of everything from cookware to an array of various kitchen gadgets.

One thing I really enjoy about this online store is the fantastic variety of cooking items and things that can make your life so much more enjoyable in the kitchen. They also have a great selection of cookbooks which I plan on raiding for my wife and mother.

Also if you can't decide on the many things available in the store you can purchase gift certificates and gift cards. So if your a foodie like me and are looking to buy a gift for a spouse or mother then this is a great covert way to self gift!

 At Food Network Store, they've made gift-buying easy by grouping gifts into categories that fit the occasion, the recipient's interest and your budget. Their culinary gifts will help you with birthdays, weddings and the holidays. They've also got the baker, the Food Network Fan and the cookbook enthusiast covered. And, if you still can't decide, a gift card or gift certificate is sure to please.

So this season while considering where to shop for all your culinary beauties I would most definitely suggest visiting the Food Network Store. I know that when I think of all the wonderful things I can gift this holiday season what really hits home for me if a gift that keeps on giving. Gifts in the kitchen are such gifts that your loved ones can enjoy for the years to come.

2008 Di Majo Norante Terra Degli Osci Sangiovese

This Sangiovese is made at The Di Majo Norante winery, which is located on the estate of the Marquis Norante of Santa Cristina in the region of Molise, along on the Adriatic Sea between Puglia and Abruzzo.

I consider it to be a tremendous value wine that delivers both quality and varietal integrity, and is the perfect match with pasta, pizza, sausages, parmigiana and various grilled meats.

On the nose I get wonderful aromas of violet and red fruits with traces of leather and earth.

On the palate the wine is quite bold and fruit driven, and delivers flavors of ripe black cherry, red currant, leather, spice, and a touch of earth. It has a long a somewhat polished finish and over delivers for the price. 89+ points

2004 Tenimenti Angelini Vino Nobile di Montepulciano TreRose


This bottle of wine is produced at one of Montepulciano's leading estates called Tenuta TreRose. TreRose is located in the heart of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano growing area in Tuscany. Trerose is 420 acres in size, of which 136 acres are planted to grapes for the production of Vino Nobile, the rest are planted to other varietals.

On the nose this wine exhibits beautiful aromas of dark red fruits, chocolate, charred oak, leather, and hints of vanilla.

On the palate the wine is rich and shows flavors reminicent of plum, spicy oak, and juicy black cherry. There is a nice leathery-cedar type thing going on with the wine that helps identify the wine as distincly Italian but doesn't over express the terroir.

 It's drinking beautifully right now and I would expect it to age generously for the nest 6-8 years. 90 points

2004 Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino


I have always been of the opinion that Brunello di Montalcino is by far the most consistently brilliant wine making region. Vintage after vintage they produce high quality and extremely complex wines for under a hundred dollars.

There are of course a few reserve Brunello's that have irked over the hundred dollar price point but the majority of the wines are located in the $50-80 range.

The Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino was sourced from the estate's best vineyards and was hand harvested into small baskets. It was vinified and then aged in Slavonian oak barrels for around 3 years. It also was aged in bottle for an additional period of 8-10 months before release.

On the nose this wine displays gorgeous aromas of cherry, red currant, cranberry, spice, and leather. There is also subtle hints of licorice and smoke that add to the complexity.

On the palate the cherry and red fruit flavors continue to dominate the overall impressions of the wine, while secondary notes of spicy cedar, leather, and tar also add to the extra dimensions of complex flavors. The finish is long and fresh. 91+ points

2006 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre

I have always been a huge fan of Allegrini's Palazzo della Torre and for years it has delivered what I consider to be impressive quality for a somewhat bargain price. This wine is very much a classic example of why many Americans have started to consume more European wines. It's packed with quality and a distinct sense of place, and the price if far more affordable then many Napa or Sonoma wines.

This wine is composed of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese, and is made in the "ripasso" method. About thirty percent of the wine is made using the techniques involved in producing Amarone. (Drying the grapes out for a period of time before vinification)

The aroma profile of this wine is loaded with currant and blackberry fruit and touches of chocolate and mocha. The color of the wine is quite dark as well showing dark ruby-red accents.

On the palate the texture in smooth and round, and flavors of dark berry fruits, leather, chocolate, mocha, and a touch of cedar combine to make a complex and nicely balanced wine. This wine also has a firm structure that hints towards improvement with extended cellar time.

2005 Brancaia "TRE" Rosso Toscana




















This little Tuscan gem is composed of 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Brancaia estate is located in Chianti Classico which is obviously one of the best and most renowned wine producing regions in Italy.

The first year of production for this wine was in the year 2000. They named this wine "TRE" because it is made with three different grapes and also the wine is sourced from three different vineyard sources:  

Brancaia (Castellina), Poppi (Radda) and Brancaia in Maremma (Morellino di Scansano). 

This wine has an amazingly unique and powerful bouquet that boasts aromas of ripe black cherries, coco powder, leather, earth, molasses, plum, sweet tea, and tobacco. It perhaps one of the most aromatically attractive wines I have smelt in quite along time.

On the palate the wine continues to speak of ripe plums and the cherries are actually bit more stewy-like, almost like a pot full of overripe black cherries boiling in a brown sugar glaze! The Tuscan earthiness and leather is also very omnipotent, while notes of brown sugar and stunning white pepper make up a very sensuous and soft finish. 

The thing I most enjoy about this wine is that it has a complete sense of place. What I mean is that it screams Tuscany and in particular, Sangiovese grown in Chianti. It has ample complexity and style and would gripping with some hearty red-sauced pastas. 91 points
