Radici Fiano di Avellino 2015

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!

I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try!

Dry Creek Valley Fiano 2016

Lovely wine, paired nicely with Greek pizza (lighter) and likely nice with white pizza. A lovely rounded mildly sweet melon fruit with an interestingly long finish, a bit tart. — a month ago

Villa Diamante

Vigna della Congregazione Fiano di Avellino 2017

I love this wine, it goes without saying
But I understand that if you are not familiar with it you might have to keep sipping before you get into it
There are shades of violet, pink and turquoise related to fruits, flowers and minerals
Texturally fleshy, but no oak
Long, fresh and young
It really has it all

Unico Zelo

Esoterico Riverland Clare Valley White Blend

Really good wine, especially for the price. An orange wine with just enough skin contact to add an interesting texture and aromatics, while also remaining clean and drinkable — 16 hours ago
