Bodega Berberana – Wine from Rioja

Pasta ai funghi porcini

A pasta ai funghi porcini needs a strong wine as accompaniment. Therefore I selected a ‘2003 Carta de Oro Crianza Rioja’ by Bodega Berberana, one of the oldest Rioja wine producers.

The ‘2003 Carta de Oro Rioja’ by Berberana

I believe it is high time that the 2003 vintage is consumed. The wine’s colour is already changing from dark red to the brick brown. But it has still the strength, the flavour and the body which makes this Rioja wine so superb. This blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Grenache is just the perfect wine for a “heavy” pasta. It is velvety and smooth with a long finish, a complex wine for every day drinking. Just honest and good stuff.

    Hi Rainer,

    The pasta looks tasty. I like pasta too, and so do my husband and daughter. Yet isn’t it funny – we use our KitchenAid machine to make Chinese noodles while many others, I guess, to make pasta. To me both are yummy.

    Best,
    Shengmei

    Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to
    get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my
    blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Kudos

  4. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
