Shudder. First sip bleech. Think bitter chocolate. I only made it through three sips. Now for the vinturi. After the vinturi - it is substantially better, but still bleech. I can't really describe the taste. Tannins, a lot of tannins. And acidic, and well, rough. To save the day I am switching to Vodka Cranberry for brunch. Buy this wine at your own risk.
Butter lettuce & mushroom salad
Ramp, Spinach Ricotta Tart
Tiramisu (who can resist espresso, marscapone lady fingers and Marsala??)
This has been the first time in a long time that I have poured a bottle down the drain. I won't even cook with it. Happy Face on the label - someone has a sense of humour!
