From the western edge of Sicily, nestled in the Belice River Valley, the town of Castelvetrano brings us the delectable Castelvetrano Olive. Buttery, bright green, and one the most people pleasing olives you will ever taste, Castelvetranos satisfy picky children, all the way up to the most discerning connoisseur. With readily apparent fruit, and almost no detectable bitterness, this is a truly olive for any application one can imagine. Try pairing in a seasonal setting, aged hard cheese and robust red wines for the cooler months, then crisp whites, fresh figs, and a younger soft cheese in the warmer months. Castelvetrano olives are one Italy’s most celebrated snacks, chosen 3 to 1 over other varieties in a country that takes the olive very seriously. Available everyday at Gallucci’s Fresh Olive Bar.
Le Grand Bouqueteau 2012 Chinon Rose is available at Gallucci’s for the outstanding price of only $9.99. This will only last until we get through the 2012′s, so hurry in for one of our best current wine buys. This is rosé of 100% Cabernet Franc from Chinon in the Loire Valley, the part of the world where Cabernet Franc achieves its best expression. The wine ranges from bright, fresh, and fruity, to serious and long-lived, and doesn’t cost as much as the taste suggests it should. Pale orange in color, mineral-driven essence with aromas of strawberry cut a citrus path, with floral top notes. Incisive dry red fruit flavors show good concentration and pick up nuances of spice with air. This Chinon Rose has a graceful style at the outset, finishing with strong and impressive persistence. Ideal with almost any meal, or able to be enjoyed with a relaxing glass on its own, get it while we got it…

How does an everyday turkey breast, become a Dietz & Watson Turkey Pastrami? Well, first that turkey breast is brined to make it even more succulent, then it is cured to lock in pepper and spices. Toss that into the smoker for a short while adding just a hint of mesquite to the flavor, then steam it to ensure tenderness. The sum of these painstaking steps and attention to detail, is a magnificent medley of tastes with lower calories, and all the deliciousness of its beef counterpart. Right now, in our deli counter, from the Gallucci family to yours.
