Treat mom to wines from Chile

Calcu Rosé_3c_09

Cooking for mom this Sunday? Mauricio Banchieri of Puro Wine in SoHo — which specializes in wines from Chile— picked out three bottles to complement your grand culinary effort.

Brunch
Calcu Rosé, $17
“A blend of Malbec, Syrah and Petit Verdot, it’s floral with subtle notes of citrus, raspberry and fresh spice. It is a versatile wine that pairs equally well with cheese, fruit, seafood, eggs and grilled chicken.”

Lunch
De Martino Legado Reserva Chardonnay 2011, $17
“Aromas of almond, melon and peach make this perfect for an afternoon meal. Its bright acidity and apple, citrus and caramelized peach flavors work perfectly with salmon, shrimp and chicken.”

Dinner
2009 Tamaya Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature sparkling wine $30
“Made in the traditional Champenoise method, this sparkling wine spends more than two years in the bottle, developing wonderful ticklish bubbles. Aromas of green apples, pears and acacia flowers — with just a touch of brioche and hazelnut — make it a lovely aperitif and fabulous for dinner. Enjoy with lobster, sea bass, king crab or sea scallops — a meal fit for a queen.”

Wine class
Puro Wine offers classes where mom can taste wines, nosh on appetizers and receive discounts on bottles. $39, 161 Grand St.
