Except for this tasting note I neglected to photograph the bottle before it hit the bottom of the recycling-bin. Which is more important than normal for this note for it is my entry to Wine Blogging Wednesday where I set the theme as an Italian Red in Seven Words. An image might just give you more of an impression than I can convey in seven words. (So nothing to add to the WBW flickr group either)
Wine Tasting Note: Cantine Sasso Aglianico del Vulture, 2005, Basilicata, Italy.
Chewed end of a wooden ink pen.
Scribblings Rating – 86/100 [3.25 out of 5]
This was actually one of a dozen alternative ‘seven word’ sentences I came up with for this wine. More ‘descriptive’ and interesting I think than ‘rich, tannic and inky, wooden and lengthy’ which was one of the other contenders.
