Reply to "January 2019 - What Are You Drinking?"

Got together with my work wine group.  Theme was Italian and mostly cheapies that were OK, but nothing I'd seek out.  The two that didn't fit that bill were a 2008 Il Molino di Grace Gratius and a 2012 Tenuta di Biserno Il Pino di Biserno.  The Gratius was very interesting as the fruit had a raisin aspect to it that I've never experienced with Sangiovese.  I have one bottle left and will drink sooner rather than later.  Also was throwing off a lot of sediment, so glad I splash decanted.  The Il Pino was very nice -- easily the WOTN.  A Bordeaux blend with the Cabernet Franc taking a prominent role.  I'm not sure I see this getting better, but sure it would hold for awhile.  Unfortunately it was my only bottle.
