Well, I certainly didn’t have to worry about all the bread I baked going to waste. I packed up a little care package for one friend yesterday afternoon and a package for another friend in the early evening. I’m bringing the rest to my office as a “sweet” treat for everyone!
I want to share my thoughts on a very good wine I tasted not too long ago. It was a 2008 D'Isanto & D'Isanto I Balzini White Label Colli della Toscana Centrale IGT. The wine is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Sangiovese. The color was deep garnet with an incredible bouquet of dark fruits, earth and spices. It drank better after decanting for about an hour due to strong tannins. It was rich in flavor with dark plum, blackberries, pepper and herbs. The finish was long and smooth. I reviewed their 2009 Red Label on 9/22/14. The White Label is superb and I’m happy that I have another bottle in my wine rack! http://www.ibalzini.it
Have a great Thursday!
