Let me start with a big shout out to American Pharoah, the new Triple Crown Winner! It was an amazing race! We were all on the edge of our seats throughout the short race.
It turned my small get together into a full-blown celebration! We opened bottles of wine and grilled lots of food. I will give my thoughts on the wine we drank during the week.
As promised, I want to share my thoughts on the 2009 Brunello Di Montalcino from the La Mannella Estate. The wine is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes and aged in oak barrels for 40 months. The color was inky purple with aromas of cherry, licorice and spices. Lots of dark fruit on the palate with hints of clove, vanilla and oak gave way to a lengthy finish. Soft tannins and full-bodied…perfect! http://www.lamannella.it
Enjoy your Sunday!
