We tasted some beautiful red wines today. The Amarone was my favorite. Full body, nice red fruit and tannin – very smooth. We learned that there is a specific vocabulary and method to rating wines besides developing a discernment for the various flavors in the wine. Chef walked us through how he evaluates wines and we made notes on our scoresheets. The Amorone scored very high on everyone’s sheet.
We also had a chicken salad with shaved black truffles and the pheasant we boned out yesterday with creamed potatoes. Then we had a free afternoon to sleep off the early afternoon wine consumption. Another very good day indeed.
