Italian Red Wines That Elicit Amore
When most people fantasize about romantic dinner dates they picture a candlelit dinner, flowers, chocolates, calm music, and of course, a glass of red wine. Red wine helps release oxytocin which is the “love hormone.” This is why red wines are so popular when it comes to romantic evenings. If you’re wondering what type of red wine to get for your next romantic date night at Assaggio, look no further! Here is a list of red wines that we carry that we think elicit amore.
Merlot wine originates from France and translates to ‘The Little Blackbird’ in French. Merlot is known for its elegant, soft, smooth, and plummy taste. It is delicious and goes well with any meal you decide for date night. You really can’t go wrong with an amazing glass of merlot.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red wine and is one of the most popular red wines in the US. This wine has a perfect balance of acidity and creaminess on the patale. It has a licorice and smokey taste which will turn up the heat on date night! Pair your cabernet sauvignon with a juicy steak and you won’t be disappointed.
Pinot Noir is one of the most romanticized red wines and our selection at Assaggio is one of the best. Pinot Noir is filled with flavors of berries and violet and has a fruity aroma. The taste also lingers on your palate for long after you’ve finished drinking.
The grapes in Syrah wine are known for their rich quality and peppery, fruity taste. Syrah normally has dark fruit flavors from sweet blueberry to savory black olive. Syrah goes very well with soft cheeses and pastas.
