Brunello. Tasting note: lovely, lovely, lovely!
Sipping a 2005 vintage from Mastro Janni and trying to figure out where to stay when we visit Tuscany in September (fingers crossed). What a long week it has been, a long day. So to come home and explore the Tuscan countryside is such respite!
I love the colour. The photo at left doesn't really do it justice. In the glass, the colour is vibrant.
The aroma is reminding me of digging into the earth in late spring, triggering my limbic system with memories of future possibilities.
The taste is all of that and more.
As for after-taste, this stirring finish might last until Sunday morning.
If I was in an MRI right now there would be fireworks on the imaging screen.
Hey, maybe that is why wine is served at Communion at Catholic mass. Although it has been a long, long time since I drank from that cup. But that's another story.
