A huge match for both Italy and Uruguay this morning to determine who goes through to the next round.
This might be my last chance to post about some Italian wine, so here goes. I'm thinking it's time for a Barbaresco. A classic producer is Produttori del Barbaresco and in 2010 all the wine from the separate vineyard crus was included in the basic bottling, which made it both delicious and a steal. I love this wine and this producer. Perfect with a pasta, risotto, steak, chicken. Give it a little decant and you are off to the races.
Grappamiel from Uruguay is what happens when you add honey into the process of making grappa and after that other flavors are also added (including chocolate, almond, chamomile).
