Segment 2 – Guest Italian Wine Correspondent Ceri Barlow
Suggested Wines for Cured Ham (Prosciutto, Serrano) – Fresh & fruity but lighter bodied wines. Specifically look for Frappato which is a grape grown in Sicily at elevation. A tremendous wine that offers great value. You can find great examples from $14-$27 that offer enjoyment levels similar to $20-$40 wines.
Suggest Wines for Spicier Sausage (Capicollo, Salami) – Ideal with Valpolicella wines from the Veneto region of Northern, Italy. Look for brands like Masi, Speri & Sartori. If you prefer a richer style of wine go with Valpolicella Ripasso ($20-$25).
