E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2010

This 2010 Côtes du Rhône is mostly a Syrah blended with Grenache and a touch of Mourvèdre. I think it’s a great blend and well balanced red. This offers dark cherry color and strong fruity aromas. Also has smoky kinda peppery aroma too. Its dry and I left open for over night (wouldn’t happen that often!) and the second day was much more dryer and less intense. Did it lose some flavor?

Italo Cescon Pinot Grigio 2012

Light gold color. Starts with strong aroma of white peach, hint of nutmeg. Its dry and long lasting taste. I like the label design. Very unique. This Pinot Grigio is one of Italo Cescon’s older wines. They’ve produced it since 1957. Wow, way before I was born!

La Maialina 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva

This Chianti Classico is delicate but with big aromas of plums, black cherries, licorice and tobacco. I tried so hard to leave it open at least one hour—unsucessful. Its definitely worth to leave it open for few hours or try it next day.
