2003 Rosso Classico


There are times when the world is turned completely upside down and wine isn't the right drink of choice. Those are the times where martinis taste the best. Then there are days when the house is quite and my mind is anything but. That's when a glass of wine is the remedy of choice.

I choose a bottle from Alto Vineyards down on the Shawnee Hills wine trail. The Rosso Classico is a blend of their two driest wines, the Chancellor and the Chambourcin. It has a rich berry flavor with a nice dry kick at the end. Smooth in the beginning and the appropriate bite after you've swallowed. A wonderful wine that goes well with food or by itself.

Oh, a bite when swallowing? I don't know if I would like that (at least not before I get knowledgeable) . Must be a vampire among wines ...

haha..I like the vampire comment! It's kinda true, but I like a nice bite with a good wine.
