We chose this Italian table wine for our Monday night cocktail hour. We have been holding onto this wine for quite awhile. . .we had 3-4 bottles of it and this is our last one. We like this very much. This wine has dark, ripe fruit with some spice. A velvety finish makes for a luscious work-week quaff.
For dinner, I put chicken legs and thighs in saltwater brine. Then, I dredged the brined chicken in a mixture of eggs and poupon mustard. Then, I tossed in a crumby mixture of bread crumbs, falafel mix and spices. Then, the chicken went into a very hot oven to get crispy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. I also am baking a couple of yams.
