Why do corks have to make life so complicated?
It was full concentration opening this bottle of Opus One.
Unfortunately the cork decided to be problematic and split upon opening, much to the dismay of our fine #wine expert.
Don’t worry, we managed to extract the remaining small part of the cork.
The wine was drinking superbly.
Tell me your cork war stories, I’m very interested to hear!
This Sangiovese Selezione del Fondatore (1,5 lt) has been resting for more than 2 years in our cellar...it was time to enjoy it 🍷
Since we were not sure about the storing conditions before we got it, there was a decent probability to find an off or corked bottle.
Fortunately this was not the case. The bottle was rocking and didn’t seem to be 13 years old. It took quite some time to open up completely.
The nose was a good mix of red fruits and fruit jam, after some time some spice notes started to come out and add more complexity and elegance to the bouquet. Loved it. Hints of chocolate and wood were present too.
In the mouth the balance of the wine was extra fine. Very harmonious. Despite of its age we still have wonderful tannins and a strong structure. Persistency was fantastic.
We started to enjoy the wine with some pizzoccheri and after the dinner we ended with some chocolate. Everything was delicious.
This wine could easily go for other 5 or even 10 years, unfortunately we only had one 😢
