 Winery of the Month


DIADEMA arises from the desire of breaking away from tradition but in the respect of the tradition itself. The wish of breaking away from tradition can be summed up in the creation of a wine bottle and then also of a champagne bottle that differ remarkably from any other ever designed before, surprising you first with the beauty of the container but even more so with the outstanding quality of its content.

 Wine & Food

Two dishes which go well with Cabernet de la Citadelle 

Cubed Tuna sashimi with salted kelp olive oil sauce.

Ingredients:

Cubed Tuna

Salted kelp

Top class olive oil like Mas d`en Gil olive oil

Menegi

Chop up salted kelp and mix with olive oil.  Leave for a couple of hours until they blend well.  Pour the sauce onto Tuna and sprinkle cut Menegi.  Serve immediately.  If you do not eat immediately the Tuna absorbs oil and it doe not taste as good.  Either pour the sauce right before you serve this dish or you can put the sauce into small soy sauce dish and dip tuna into the sauce.It is possible to keep the sauce up to two weeks or so.

Korean Style Tofu Soup

Ingredients:

Premade Korean style Tofu soup sauce (Non Spicy one)

Tofu

Vegetables like Chinese cabbage

Sliced pork

Cook the dish following the instruction written on the package.
Comment about marriage
Cabernet from Domaine de la Citadelle is rather classic, with medium body and tannin. When you pour this salted kelp and olive oil sauce onto Tuna it’s body becomes close to Chu Toro and goes very well with this medium bodied Cabernet.  If you serve Tuna with soy sauce as usual in Sashimi, the tannin of this wine bothers you and creates an unpleasant fishy.
Believe it or not Carbenet from Citadelle goes well with Korean Style Tofu Soup.  Non-spicy Sundobu has rather a gentle flavor.  Tofu itself does not go well with red wine, but ingredients used for the soup like garlic, soy sauce and mild red peppers are red wine friendly, so Korean Style Tofu Soup can go well with red wine, which is light to medium body.
It is nice to enjoy wine with healthy dishes like Cubed Tuna and Korean Style Tofu Soup and be ready for the spring, when your bodyline is more pronounced as we wear fewer clothes.  Well, at least I do not have a choice and must to be ready after gaining some weight during New Year holiday!!

 Zodiac Sign of the Month

Pisces
February, 20 – March, 20
 

Philosophy

I wish
Pisceans are generous, caring, and kind. However, they tend to be more concerned about other people's problems than their own. Pisceans are not decisive persons and may change their mind many times. They are also followers, but they do not always choose good leaders. Because of its good qualities, the Pisces is popular with many types of people, but when it is secretive it drives these friends away. The Pisces enjoys good relations with members of the opposite sex – and those enjoy the company of Pisceans. They tend to have too many love affairs so they are advised to control themselves. Too much of a good thing can be upsetting. Maintaining balance and harmony is good and also very important for the Pisces.
