I hope I’m not being too controversial moving on to a ‘regular’ weekend drinking thread
A 2018 Pinot Noir - or rather Pinot Nero - for us this evening, from Trentino:
A youthful, jolly uncomplicated wine - one that brings huge smiles, rather than generate discussions the length of the Talmud. Beautiful nose - very floral (rose petals, violets), with ripe cherries and strawberries as well as a little spice which neither of us could home in on. Fresh and fruity on the palate, with ripe berries, fresh cherries, even a touch of candy floss, but finishing on a bit of a zingy orange zest. Very mellow tannins, and just the right amount of acidity to give it a backbone. Very enjoyable!
I should be downstairs making our liver and bacon to go with it, but the husband is playing The Fall so loud, I’m hiding upstairs until peace returns!
What are you drinking this weekend?
