Cheese and Wine Gift Oud Rewyck Valpolicella
A wine gift with two beautiful red wines from Valpolicella, Italy. Included is a delicious Gouda 48+ cheese. The wines and cheese (cheese of around 300 grams) are delivered in a luxurious wooden box with a sliding lid.
Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Monti Garbi
This is a wine that comes from the Valpolicella region in northeastern Italy. It enchants the senses with its seductive flavors of dark cherries, plums and blackberries, which are beautifully complemented by subtle notes of herbs and dried spices. This wine showcases the unique terroir of Valpolicella, with its rolling hills, vineyard-covered landscapes and a rich wine-growing tradition dating back centuries.
Tenuta Sant'Antonio Valpolicella Superiore La Bandina
This wine also comes from the famous Valpolicella region in northeastern Italy. It seduces the palate with a harmonious blend of red and black fruit flavors, such as cherry, raspberry and blackberry, accompanied by hints of spice and a touch of earth. This wine beautifully reflects the unique characteristics of its origins, with its vineyard-covered hills and the rich wine-growing heritage that characterizes Valpolicella.
Why this combination?
The expressive flavors of dark cherries, plums and blackberries, accompanied by subtle notes of spices, complement the profile of the matured Gouda cheese.
These wines show moderate tannins that add structure and depth to the palate. The tannins in the Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Monti Garbi and Tenuta Sant'Antonio Valpolicella Superiore La Bandina are well integrated and provide a balanced and velvety mouthfeel that harmonizes with the firm texture of the Oud Rewyck. The tannins in the wines interact with the proteins in the cheese, creating a pleasant contrast and enhancing the overall taste experience.
The richness of the Oud Rewyck, with its long maturation and complex flavor profile, provides a perfect counterpart to the fruity and spicy characteristics of the Valpolicella wines. The lively acidity of the wine cuts through the richness of the cheese and creates a harmonious balance in the mouth. The cheese in turn provides a creamy and slightly salty element that heightens the flavors of the wines and brings out their nuances.
The Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Monti Garbi, Tenuta Sant'Antonio Valpolicella Superiore La Bandina and Oud Rewyck together form a symphony of flavors and textures. This combination is a testament to the craftsmanship of the Italian winery and the Dutch cheesemaker and shows the diversity and complexity of both regions. This combination is a sensory experience that delights the taste buds.
