Last summer, I finally got to open the seductive looking bottle of La Rioja, a Spanish wine that I brought from Düsseldorf airport duty free. I had expected La Rioja to be a sweet tasting wine but it was weirdly not sweet although I wouldn’t call it bitter. I paired it with cheese, pasta and all sorts of items but I couldn’t come to like it.
One fine Friday evening, I was watching Iron Man 2 while enjoying my pasta with pimento stuffed olives and a glass of La Rioja. Just when Iron man discovers the new element that will fuel his arc reactor, I discovered that those pimento stuffed olives went so well with the tannins of La Rioja wine.
