Whether you love to love it or love to hate it, Valentine’s Day is here. Expectations can be ultra-high or nonexistent, and both options have equal potential for romance or heartbreak. Firm in our belief that wine makes all things rosier, we’ve put together a lineup of options to express your appreciation of the ones you love (or for a really epic solo night of pizza, ice cream, and movie binging).
For Your Palentines
Les Allies Sparkling Rosé — 750 ml or 187 ml
For Your Sweetheart
Le Mesnil Grand Cru Brut Champagne
For Your Dinner for Two
Zanato Cormi Corvina/Merlot Blend
The perfect recipe for romance? A killer cut of steak, a sexy dollop of béarnaise, candlelight, and red wine. It might be corny, but tis the season! We can’t account for how you do in the kitchen, but a sultry red can boost your game considerably, even if a thing or two goes awry. Zenato Cormi, a blend of Valpolicella’s favorite Corvina and French darling Merlot, makes for that alluring mix of lush fruit and velvety texture to bring all your culinary wooing together. Sweet spice and dark, juicy plum are ample on the nose, with black cherry compote, sweet tobacco, and a hint of vanilla on the long, complex finish.
