@cantinecrocco mi hanno inviato una selezione dei propri vini e tra questi ero curioso di provare MATINONE PRIMITIVO BASILICATA IGT 2015
Siamo a MONTALBANO JONICO in provincia di #matera nelle colline che guardano il mare e dove il terreno che una volta era una spiaggia preistorica è ricco di sali minerali, sabbie, ghiaia, sassi ideali per la coltura della vite.
Questo vino che tra l'altro ha una bellissima immagine, mi è piaciuto molto, prima di aprirlo mi ero fatto un idea sbagliata, credevo di trovarmi davanti ad un vino difficile, spigoloso, che virasse verso note dure, invece degustato mi sono dovuto ricredere.
Al calice si presenta rosso rubino intenso ,impenetrabile con riflessi violacei.
Al naso leggermente vinoso, con note nitide in primis di frutti rossi di bosco, ciliegia, marasca e poi spezie come il pepe nero e il tabacco. Finale leggermente erbaceo.
In bocca e fresco, sapido, morbido,caldo con un tannino presente ma setoso. Vino equilibrato con una persistenza gusto olfattiva importante.
Vi invito a seguire la cantina, a provare i suoi vini e a fare un giro a MATERA, capitale europea della cultura 2019
First full moon of the year.. It's a little hard to see behind the trees but it is a beauty. I just spent an hour outside with my husband, a glass of wine and just took it all in.. It really is the simple things.✨
Wine is like duct tape, it fixes everything! 😉

I never thought I'd be that mum. The one who sits down at the end of the day and has a drink of wine or whatever. I'd heard about the wine drinkers 😂 (yes I gave you all that name). I don't drink much anyway so it was like surely I won't.
Now I'm one of those mums. Here's to my fellow wine drinkers. Especially the ones who have something a little stronger than wine sometimes. I don't drink wine - my go-to was always bourbon or midori growing up. So, at the end of the day when I'm frazzled or feeling meh, I make myself a drink or two.
And ya know what, it's not the end of the world. The way I see it is that you do what you have to do to cope - to get through the rest of the evening or to start fresh for tomorrow. There is zero harm in it if you are being responsible.
I will never have more than two drinks. Two drinks means I can still drive if there is an emergency and I need to take Emily to the hospital if she's sick. Two means I can unwind. Two means I am still fully aware of my surroundings and I can think straight and still look after my baby girl.
And I certainly don't do it every night. But who cares if I did. It is my life. Just like any other mama who needs a drink or two. We are not alcoholics. We are just tired mamas who like to unwind. And that is perfectly normal and perfectly ok.
So here's to all my fellow mamas having a drink right now. And to the ones who are already dreaming of pouring that glass 😘 oh and to the dads sitting down with a beer. Can't forget you guys!
