Mauro’s Valentine Tips
Today I wanted to talk about a few tips to make the most out of your Valentine’s Day. First and foremost, the day is about the love of your life and everyone else who has touched your heart. If you focus on this thought, nothing can go wrong!
Since the day is about celebrating your love, you must toast with Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine from the Valdobbiadene region. Prosecco is a lighter, fresher drink than its French counterpart, Champagne. It is made using the Charmat method which allows the wine to undertake the second fermentation in a pressurized, stainless steel tank, rather than individual bottles like Champagne, creating a lighter drink. Italians drink Prosecco not only on special occasions but every day. They consider it their aperitif, an appetizer drink served before the meal to stimulate the appetite, and to start the good times with family and friends.
As the day carries on, you will be thinking about your plans for dinner, candlelit of course, and the intimate time you will share with your date. As much as we Italians encourage you to mangi, eat, be mindful that getting sleepy after the second course is not advisable.
And finally, remember to focus on what Valentine’s Day stands for, love and compassion. Smile and be patient with everyone that will make your day perfect, the people who have given their day to you; florists, sales associates, servers and many more.
Share the first part of your day by listening to me live tomorrow, Tuesday, February 14 at 6:30 A.M. on radio station KVI AM 570 as I talk about Valentine’s Day.
