10to20 - Still Red

【米米星】by Wylie


旅程中便真的體會到人生的起跌,昨天的餐廳可以是冇星的,但非常貼心仔細,由麵包到擺設、服務到食物都非常高分,但今天兩星的卻非常冇 heart ,待應所修煉到的是做足每個指定動作,把每一道菜都逐一介紹(也可以説是唸了一遍),但那種傲慢和看唔到你的態度,我想立刻反枱。心中只好祝福他們繼續有工做,如果要見識一下,可以到這間位於羅馬的餐廳,名為 Il Pagliaccio。

講番酒的話題吧,他們的葡萄酒單卻是不錯的,涵蓋了高、中、低價錢的各種酒,也有不同産酒區的選擇,我們當然點了一瓶來自意大利的,是2007年的 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino,葡萄品種是 100% Sangiovese,但是 Montalcino 獨有的品種,不同用來造 Chianti 的品種,此酒充滿紅果味道,柔軟幼滑優雅的單寧,經過八年陳蔵開始展現成熟韻味;待酒師的手法俐落又專業,總算挽回一些分數。

Muffuletta Memories

This post takes us to New Orleans, where I had the honor of visiting over a month ago. Even with all the wonderful foods and cocktails I got to try while I was there, I still had to make time for the inspiring bottles I love so much. 651 more words


Emilia-Romagna (3)

Vorige week proefden we 3 verrassende Lambrusco’s. Heerlijke zomerwijnen, gekoeld het lekkerst, op het balkon in de zon. Terwijl ik dit schrijf regent het pijpenstelen, en lijkt er weinig over te zijn van dat zomergevoel. 696 more words

There are weeks that sometimes go by, when I wonder if anyone is reading my writings. Then out of the blue, I will get a note on Social Media from one of my friends asking me a question about wine and it makes me smile. 839 more words


The Temperamental Sangiovese Grape Variety

I went to school and hold a second level Sommelier certificate, but I don’t consider myself a sommelier. I don’t use that word to describe me, and prefer to save it for someone who is in the wine industry. 700 more words
