The wines came from all over Italy. Most of the wines were unfamiliar to me. I should have taken a photo of the wine menu, but that would have been so gauche!
We settled on Antinori Guado Tasso Il Bruciato 2012. It is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Syrah. The aroma was “heady” and I could taste the berry and spices before I even brought it to my lips! I tasted dark red fruits, espresso and earth. The finish was long. We were not disappointed.
Three weeks to go and the cast comes off. I can’t wait to start knitting again!
