Mako Shark with tomato, scallion and onion, Orchietta with Swiss ChardMako Shark, grilled with scallions and served with sauteed tomatoes and onion, with orecchiette pasta with sauteed Swiss chard, EVO and grated pecarino romano.

The wine can be found locally at Artisan Wine Shop  in Beacon and in NYC.  I bought mine at Gary’s Wine in Wayne, NJ.  Where I was for a Lettie Teague book event. Our friends at Zachy’s in NYC say:

“The unique blend of Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile is the ultimate crowd pleaser and challenges Provence for its value and character! From its historic label, Piemonte pedigree, the indigenous varietals, its pale Salmon pink-orange color, and extremely well balanced crowd pleasing nuances this is fuller-styled Rose that will convert ney-sayers. Expect to find nuances of tart cherries, pomegranate, herbs, minerality, and great Sangiovese acidity” -Zachys Buying Team
