We enjoyed the evening and nice to return to the blind tasting format. Winning wines were the dry and delicate Riesling from Villa Wolf 2010 Riesling Dry Pfalz $15 from Mosheim/Mahmoud/Issa/Smith with a subtle 11.5 alcohol content. Along with the full bodied, well balanced 2006 Belpoggio Brunello Di Montalcino $39.99 Hege/Tenen/Gamson picked from a nice selection of Brunellos with good years ’04, ’05 and ’06. Well done for us to blindly go into a vertical tasting of this varietal.
