No visit to Italy is complete without a quick wine shopping trip to push the limits of my baggage weight allowance. Any thoughts, suggestions, notes, and/or observations would be most graciously appreciated.
Above: La Braccesca (Antinori) – Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2006
– Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2005
– Bersano Nirvasco Barolo 2006

Tasting notes to follow, eventually.
