With the temperatures outside going down, and the days getting shorter, it’s likely that you’ll find yourself at home more this winter. This can be especially true when it comes to leisurely, enjoyable activities such as eating, or on the topic of today’s blog, enjoying a delightful glass of wine (with or without a meal). Here at Strega, we are known for serving delicious, elegant Italian fare in Boston’s historic North End, but that is not to overshadow our eclectic list of wines, which serves as inspiration for today’s article. Today we’re talking about types of wine that can be best enjoyed this winter – learn more information below or make a reservation with us at Strega today!
You’ll notice that the wines featured in this article are exclusively red wines, and there is both a reason and an explanation for this. As science would have it, red wines tend to have a higher alcoholic content than other varieties, which helps warm the body – an ideal benefit for the colder months.
One such red wine that is both popular and beloved by many is pinot noir, given that it is lightweight, yet flavorful and robust. In some cases, pinot noir can contain significant spice as well. One of the most accessible types of wine on the market, you can’t go wrong with pinot noir for your next at-home kickback or even holiday gathering with friends and family.
Another red wine, Cabernet Sauvignon is often given credit for its hearty mix of flavors, which tends to pair with food in intriguing ways. In many iterations of cabernet sauvignon, you might find flavors such as vanilla, or perhaps darker, smokier tastes. Consider enjoying this variety at home this winter, or perhaps with us at Strega North End!
