It’s an overcast day, but I’m heading out for a power walk soon. I need to burn off a few calories from my dinner last night.
After watching the Patriots win the playoff game, (yippee!) I met up with a friend at a local Italian restaurant for some wine, mussels and pasta. It was a delicious meal, topped off by good conversation and many laughs.
We drank 2011 Castellare Chianti Classico from Tuscany. Made with only native vines, 95% Sangioveto, and 5% Canaiolo, this medium bodied wine was ruby red in color with dark cherries, spices and herbs on the nose. The aromas carried through to the palate with red cherry, tobacco, pepper and a hint of floral for a very satisfying finish.
Have a peaceful Sunday!
