Preparing For Tonight

This evening should turn out great! The last chapter - number XXXV - in my Brunello project is due with a dinner with 10 bottles from the great 2001 vintage.
You can see from the picture below which bottles that will be opened and drunk (the Riserva´s from Conti Costanti and Canalicchio - Franco Pacenti si delivered by a friend later).
And there are some other bottles as well...
Notes to follow.

  3. This is SO typical. Every time the same. With so many people participating, 15 bottles seem hardly sufficient to offer anything but small droplets of wine for each person. I'm bugged by the fact that EVERY time I need to slip a half-bottle of wine inside my coat just to have a backup in case of wine shortage at Joakim's place. Again, as I said, so typical... :-)

    1. Sorry! I will immediately get some more magnums from the cellar! For six persons, this will not suffice!! ;-)
