Day #62 of the year.
Medici Ermete Quercioli Secco Reggiano Lambrusco DOC
March 3rd is National Cold Cuts Day. Whether you call them cold cuts, deli meats, lunch meats, charcuterie, or salumi, today would be the best day to stow your pots and pans and put together a cured meats and cheese platter for dinner. I have opted for a chilled (57-59 F) bottle of Medici Ermete Quercioli Secco Reggiano Lambrusco DOC to complement my meal. This dry yet fruity and refreshing sparkling red has the pedigree to pair with salumi and hardy cheeses. Lambrusco hails from the heart of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, which has gifted the culinary world with mortadella, Prosciutto di Parma, pancetta, Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano, and balsamic vinegar. Add a loaf of crusty bread, olives, or grapes and enjoy!
