I happened to come across this recipe as I was trying to find a Mardi Gras inspired cocktail to share with you. I totally had the intention of making something like a hurricane or a sazerac. But I thought those are so… been there done that.

FRIDAY SIPS : NICOLIS 2009 AMARONE

Nicolis 2009 Amarone Della Valpolicella

In the spirit of full disclosure, let me preface this very first Friday Sips wine post with the fact that I am nothing remotely close to a Sommelier nor am I relatively close to being a Wine Connoisseur. I am simply your average everyday wine loving girl.

What I would like to accomplish by starting this series of posts is to share with you my thoughts on a particular wine I’ve tried and through that learn something in the process. I hope you join me along this journey. Shall we begin?
