What They Said:
Per Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer “Amaicha wines are named after a small village in the northern Argentinean province of Tucuman. “The indigenous people of this town have a special reverence for what they call Pachamama, or Mother Earth, and they celebrate their admiration for the earth’s goodness with both festivals and a way of life that respects the elements around them – Earth, Moon, Sun & Water. That respect extends to the cultivation of the grapes that are used to create Amaicha wines.”
Amaicha Bonarda “is a red wine that originates in Italy, but is actually the most widely grown grape in Argentina. It produces a lush, medium-bodied wine with ripe plum and blackberry flavors. This one’s terrific for cocktails and equally appropriate for serving with pasta or even meatloaf.”
What I Think:
To celebrate the fact that we picked up a case of this wine I decided to open one up and try it out on some friends. I had a bottle last week and was impressed so I was anxious to see what others thought. It was a unanimous success! I enjoyed this bottle as much as the last. Looks like if I really want another case I may be racing my friends to the store.
