2 excellent wines from last night’s rugby watching. The first is a bone-dry Riesling which, thankfully, opened up in the glass after a few minutes. Good fruit, real steel backbone, good length 17/20.
The second is an Italian, from the Aglianico grape grown on volcanic soils from nearby Mount Vulture in Basilicata. Dark & brooding, but still with good acidity & freshness making it (all too) easy to drink ! 17/20.#winelover #winelovers #wine
