Get ready for the weekend...Thursday Happy Hour!
Guerrieri’s L’Amico Ciliegia
My brother-in-law Scott and sister-in-law Rachel are opera singers. They spend their summers in Italy roughing it. They eat fresh pastas and exotic cheeses, frolic in the vineyards, and bathe in tubs along the Tuscan hillsides (sorry, that was in a Viagara commercial). Anyway, upon their stateside return, they generally send me a couple bottles of this fine wine. It’s cherry wine…and it’s just about the best d@mn thing I’ve ever consumed. I’m guessing it’s meant for after dinner imbibing, but for me… anytime is a good time. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. It’s smooth, without that heavy, syrup taste associated with some ports. The sour cherry taste is beyond good. Here’s the bad news. I don’t know where to find this stuff. If you do, please drop me a note. I did some google searches on the brand and then cherry wine in general. Please help! This is my last bottle. Please! Any cherry wine will do.
