Housekeeping #3

I am learning wine generally tastes better the closer you drink it to its origin…

Pio Cesare dolcetto d’Alba 2010
I have a theory – if stuck order a PC- acid& tight squeaky clean fruit – classic Margherita in Lecco Northern Italy
Brilliant wine acid cuts the food

Light colour drying tannin after acid – better 6 hrs later- cheapie at Obika in Milan with mozzarella tasting platter

M Lapiere morgon 2010
This guy has been on my radar – young primary- a more filtered style- more squeaky clean- good fruit but tight even with decant & time- leave for 6-12 months
