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

Last night at Zucca for Barb's birthday:

2006 Marc Hebrart Special Club - very good as you might expect

2000 Domenico Clerico Percristina Barolo - this was astonishingly great!  Considering several other recent experiences with bottles from the 2000 Barolo vintage, I went armed with a backup... but this may very well end up being my wine of the month.

2004 Conterno-Fantino Sori Ginestra Barolo - lots of oak on this.  It's a well-made Barolo that just did not stand up on the same podium as the Percristina.

2004 Querciabella Palafreno - powerful and rustic, but less refined than some of the other Italian merlots that I prefer.
