Last week I paired my favorite Chicken and Sausage Gumbo with Kuhlman Cellars 2017 Sangiovese and must have looked like the heart eye emoji all night. The spiciness of the andouille and cayenne complimented the Sangiovese so nicely.

Made from the Brunello clone of Sangiovese and aged sixteen months in French oak barrels, this wine is a brilliant light ruby color that dances in the glass. It packs an acidic punch, making it a fabulous wine to pair with tomato-based dishes such as my Fideos with Chorizo and Mussels.
This is one of those reds that would be equally appreciated during the hot summer months. Some reds are so big and heavy, they appeal to me less in the summer (even though those are my favorite wines!). I could definitely imagine enjoying this lighter bodied wine year-round so stock up before summer time if you want a great red for summer grilling!
This single varietal grape in this bottle hails from Newsom Vineyards in the Texas High Plains, which has a well-deserved reputation for making exceptional wine. I picked up notes of summer strawberry and lavender fields. It was as delicious on its own as it was paired with the gumbo. It’s one of those wines that’s just so pleasing to drink! You can order yours here or pick up some bottles on your next trip to the Texas wine country. Read about visiting Kuhlman Cellars here.
Happy Wine Wednesday,
