In between work, car travel and my “to do” list yesterday, I managed to make a delicious Cuban whole wheat bread and scrumptious dinner. The adrenalin was pumping!
When my dinner guest arrived, I opened a bottle of 2010 Villa Mattielli Amarone della Valpolicella. I reviewed this wine a few months ago and my thoughts about it are still the same. Although the wine wasn’t decanted this time, it was every bit as good. This is what I had to say about it a few months ago. “It had dark berries and spice on the nose. The wine was rich and smooth with notes of dark cherry, clove, red currants, a hint of white chocolate and oak. Soft tannins and jam gave this a very nice finish.” The only comment I want to add is that the flavors got more intense as the evening went on. I have one bottle left and I plan to keep it under wraps for a year or so.
Okay…back to work for me!
