Will Try Again
Italo Cescon Pinot Nero Veneto IGT (2005)
Comments: It was love at first sight when I saw the beautifully classic label of this wine at Aria Wine Bar in Greenwich Village, NYC, NY. Roberto offered me a taste and my attraction was confirmed. All the beauty that a single grape wine can have is here. Deep black cherry flavors with prevalent yet gentle tannins. Easy to drink, a great food wine. I will be looking to bring this one home.
Barbera d'Asti DOC la Ladra (2005)
Comments: Deep rich fruit, well balanced. Black pepper and spice. Better than average Barbera with nice complexity, minerarlity and depth. Went very well with Bruschetta Ai Funghi E Montasio mushroom bruschetta and montasio cheese.

Berço Do Infante Red Blend Vinho Regional Estremadura Reserva (2008)
Comments: A friend poured this wine for me last night. I was hesitant to open it because knowing their taste I thought it would be an expensive bottle. I never open expensive bottles during the week. I tasted it and still thought it was an expensive bottle. Very nice. I don't know much about Portuguese wines but was convinced that this was a good one. Actually it was the 2009 vintage. It is a blend of Castelao and Aragonez grapes, both indigenous to the Estremadura region of western Portugal. It pours with a dark glistening purple color. It was rich but the flavors delicate black cherry, prune and smoke and spice. Verynice minerality, acidity and fine tannins. No after affects that some times come with inexpensive wine which it turns out this one is. Will look for this again.
