The June Federal Case

Tasty Somethings for Everyone, and there were two clear favorites
June 8, 2022


Two clear favorites last week. The Vetriccie showed even richer and fuller than my notes below. Tasters thought it a wonderfully satisfying warm-weather wine. Of the reds, the 2020 Mauro Molino Langhe Nebbiolo showed breed and class far above its price. Light in color and body, it was nonetheless an elegant partner for warm weather barbecue.
