Piedmont Party

We’re throwing a little Piedmont Party tonight at the wine store from 6-8pm.  We’ll pour a red and a white from this prestigious Italian region:  De Forville Langhe Nebbiolo 2009 ($19.75) and Franco M. Martinetti Gavi 2008 ($21.75).  And we’ll sample a special raw cow’s milk cheese from Piedmont, Strachintunt, that Laura from the cheese counter describes as “blue, washed, bloomy, creamy, crumbly . . . it’s all at once yet none of these.  Looking just like a cloud with a sweet, subtle portobello mushroom note, a few whisps of blue stripe the interior, as if gorgonzola cremificato and taleggio were united as one.”
