Dad, husband, basic wine rookie, and amateur chef. I'm drinking and cooking every night to catch up. Local to the Fort Worth area.
A bit early to open this wine but I had the pangs for a Barolo. Quintessential Barolo. Opens to a tartness of cherries and spice. Amongst the layers, the fruit pops with a hint of earthiness, herbal notes and mushroom. This has the makings of a great vintage. With only a 1 hr decant, I'm rating this high on the speculation of what's to come. Clearly opened well before it's maturity. — 15 days ago
Pretty much a stick to the varietal Monte d' Abruzzo. Somewhat aromatic with black berries and inky-purple out of the bottle. I'm going just a bit higher on the rating. Paired very well with a pasta Bolognese. Good price point if you can find it. — 13 days ago
