A Good 'Un

There are some basics rules/phrases to help you through life.
If you fall off your bike..get straight back on.
If the bottom falls out of your business...get some new trousers
...and wine-wise..
if you drink a bad 'un..follow it with a good 'un!
Zaccagnini San Clemente 2003
Montepulciano d'Abruzzo , Italy

Deep dark and brooding, purple rim softening; autumn nose ( maybe the weather)..but forest fruits come to mind, horse chestnuts, cool and elegant; the following flavour confirms it..cool..soft 'brittle' tannins, oak and marzipan, a wine to enjoy..will hold for ages...
Points 17.5+

Spaghetti Bolognese was the dish..drink Italian most would say..but the 'harder' wines just clash..I like a softer wine..Pinot maybe..but the San Clemente was just fine.
Those with Cholesterol
