Castello Di Verduno
Verduno D.O.C
"Basadone"
2011
$26

Continuing last week’s theme of uncommon varietals from Piemonte, we have a lovely example of Pelaverga Piccolo, that is virtually unknown outside of the area of Verduno. Pelaverga is a light aromatic varietal that tends to smell like strawberries and can be slightly pétillant. The wine is fun and pairs well with light salumi, tortellini in broth and fresh or soft-ripened cheeses. The wine is also an excellent idea for a first date as its name "Basadone" is local dialect for "one who kisses women."

Taleggio
Cow
Lombardia
$30/lb

Taleggio is a very popular Italian cheese that comes from the Valtaleggio in Northern Italy. The cheese is soft ripening and has a washed rind. The rind itself can be quite pungent yet the cheese is slightly fruity in flavor. It is excellent on bruschetta or stirred into polenta.
