Oakie Dokey?

20150330_185730When aging wine in a barrel – especially a new barrel – it’s really important to monitor how the wine is doing.  The last thing you want to do is over-oak the wine.

Thankfully, this awful job falls to Sweet Baby G.  As you can see, it’s tough work, and the view from her cubicle is pretty barren (see below).  I hope she doesn’t report me to the Italian labor authorities.

P.S. The wine’s not quite ready so this means – sadly – that she will have to repeat this painful process in about two weeks.
