Happy-Go-Lucky Surprise

A planned surprise for my wife....a trip to Mainz..a movie..and a meal later.

We saw 'Happy-Go-Lucky'...a wonderful British film...very amusing..with only a touch of life's problems. A change to many films lately of violence and hate.
The meal was at a winebar/restaurant 'Gusto'

The food was good..and they serve a variety of wines by the glass.
Only short notes as it was my wife's day.


Feudi di San Gregorio Sannio Falanghina 2006
Campania. Italy
Elegant, aromas of apple and banana..almonds...soft nuts...citrus acidity...very good opener

Points 16.25





Giulin Barbera del Monferrato 2006
Piedmont, Italy
Aromas of cherry..soft tannins..good food wine...some plums at the finish

Points 16.25



Barbaresco Basarin 2004
Piedmot, Italy
Very fine Barbaresco...nose quite intense...cherries and plums...some violets...tannins only part of the wine....drinking well now
Points 17.25


Siepi 2003
Tuscany, Italy
Fuller flavour...juicy...blackcurrant..dry but silky...dark chocolate
Points 17.25

Very jealous - I love Fonterutoli's wines, but never had a chance to try the Siepi. Methinks that a 2003 Siepi should rest a few more years in the cellar?

Joe...served by the glass from a very modern machine...wine was very drinkable now....excellent with pasta and a LARGE portion of grated truffles....Piedmont/Tuscany marriage..it won't last...
Seriously though...
my guess it will hold for 10 years still....
