The Perfect Pairing of Sandwich and Wine

We shared a 10K Lira Sandwich from Corrieri's Formaggeria and a bottle of Domaine Pichot 2005 Vouvray from Vinea Wines in the 12South area. It was a perfect combo that involved the consultation of the folks from both Vinea Wines and Corrieri's to create heaven on our tongues. It was a celebration of a busy day with completed works and orders shipped out.

It was blissful and you absolutely have to try them both, if you haven't already!!!

The 10K Lira is prosciutto cotto, salame toscano, mortadella, coppa and sopressata. For cheese they add provolone and mozzarella. For flavoring they add spinach and peppadew peppers. All served in a big hunk of foccacia drizzled with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt, freshly cracked black pepper and italian seasonings.
