Keep forgetting to ask -- The husband and I had this with dinner at Felidia last month:
Wine: Veneto Oracolo 2000
An enticing nose, with ripe damson fruit, mineral and oaky aromas that follow through to a full body, with polished tannins and a long fruit and mineral finish. These guys are coming on big-time. Lovely. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2005. 790 cases made. (JS)
The husband thought it was one of the best wines he's ever had and I'd definitely put it in my top 10 or so. I think it'd would actually be even better in a couple of years.
I've done some reading on this particular wine (which was suggested by the sommelier after describing what we like), but in general don't know much about Italian wines. Any suggestions of what we should try that would be similar?
