Now by no means I’m saying these wines are reasonably priced, but that’s not the point, these wines are a good way to celebrate a special occasion.
Barolo, Vigna D’Vai 2003 Ca’Brusa (Italy)
Grape: Nebbiolo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebbiolo
Brunello Di Montalcino, Villa I Cipressi 2004 (Italy)
Grape: Sangiovese Grosso clone Brunello variety http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sangiovese
These have a traditional red wine taste, with a fruity pallet; they have just the right strength.
Are there any differences? Well the second wine has a less fruity taste.
I didn’t drink these to anything but my guess is that it would go great with any red meat, or even a strong tasting pasta.
They did go very well with nice company and celebrating the birth of my son J.
The Barolo, Vigna D’Vai comes from Diego Marengo’s winery.
The Brunello Di Montalcino comes from http://www.villaicipressi.it/chisiamo_ing.htm
Both wines I recommend wholeheartedly.
