It was a productive day yesterday that ended with a cocktail and fun conversation with a friend. Of course, my cocktail was Grey Goose over ice.
I tasted an amazing wine from the Ruffino Winery that is worth mentioning. It was a Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino 2008. The wine is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes. It held the aroma of red berries and floral undertones. Rich cherries, licorice and spice were on the palate. Invigorating tannins and bountiful finish with a hint of chocolate made this a stand out! http://www.ruffino.com FYI…the wine is aged in large oak casks for about 36 months, which is 12 months longer than required by Italian law.
Much to do…Happy Sunday!
