Our good friend Kathy snuck away from a work trip in Bologna to spend a couple of nights with us at Tutto Doppio. We ate and walked and drank. And then we repeated. Fantastic.
Kathy happened to be here during our once-every-two-week tasting of the montepulciano that’s in the oak barrel. We have another batch in the steel tank waiting its turn on the oak, so did a side-by-side comparison. She preferred the brighter taste of the wine without any time in the barrel, so we promptly had her bottle some up for the trip home.
Technically, this isn’t the first bottle of the batch. But even if it was, we’d be happy to be sharing it with her!
