Sometimes I have thought about what to open that night before 8am...

Pizza Wine

 It has been a while since I posted a wine, and one of the main reasons for that is that we have been drinking them and throwing away the bottles before I manage to take a picture! Today, I was determined to make sure that didn't happen. So, I took the picture before we ordered the pizzas tonight.
The one on the left is Tim's favorite, the one on the right is mine. We have bought at least 3 bottles of each in the last month. They are both great for pizza, picnics, and other summer whatnot. And both can be purchased for between 10-12 dollars.

Las Rocas Garnacha (2008)- Medium bodied, lots of fruit, with a peppery bite and just a hint of smoke. Very drinkable and yet a little surprising each time you put your nose in the glass.

Gabbiano Chianti Classico (2007)- Medium bodied, with oak on the nose and the palate. Full of fruit, excellent with pizza, but even this vegetarian thinks this wine screams for Bolognese or a big thick steak on the grill.
