Il Rosso Alfio Moriconi Selection Toscana Sangiovese

Probably the best under $15 Tuscan I've had. Medium body, fresh cherry, a little herb. Some complexity and pleasant tannins to the finish which is rare for a Sangiovese at this price point. — 8 years ago

Andrea Oberto

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Tonight we are keeping it simple at home. We ordered delivery from Pasta Flyer, the brainchild of Mark Ladner who made his name as the Executive Chef of Del Posto during its 4*s from the NY Times days. The Rigatone with Ragu is delicious and the sort of thing that is nigh impossible to achieve at home given the slow cooking patience involved. The Fusilli with Basil Pesto is a little grassy but tasted of spring. The Spaghetti with meatballs is probably the least authentic pasta but it can only be a crowd pleaser. Who cares if it isn't Italian... We are in New York. New York authentic, perhaps. The quantity could feed a crowd, which made me happy as I was hungry and didn't need to share.

I opened this entry level Barolo from Oberto. 2013 was such a fabulous vintage for Barolo and it's great to see success at the affordable level as well as the top end. This under $40 wine is plush, inviting and just plain scrumptious. Midweight, it's one for the near term, which is fine by me. Crack open some of these while waiting for the big boy Barolos to age in the cellar for a few years.

Simple and delicious. Pasta and Barolo.

Can I pound the whole bottle while crying? Asking for a friend.
