So, we wrote this yesterday....guess where we had lunch again today...fyi the restaurant is Del Testerado (shopping center Arapaho & Hillcrest, by the Chase bank- still in soft opening). We are already planning a wine dinner, at the moment, they are BYOB....probably will stay that way...as many prefer BYOBs.
At a new little Italian restaurant having lunch. Tasting the 2009 Montevetrano. Not sure which I like better, the wine or my Bucatini Amatriciana. The wine is fresh and lively. I would never have guessed it was an 09. Black fruit, plums and cedar mixed with tobacco on the perfumed nose. The mouthfeel is soft and round, very velvety. The Anglianico adds depth reminiscent of a gorgeous Hermitage (something I am partial to). Rex says this is what is bringing out raspberries. We got a great deal which lets us sell at $49, 5% off 6, 10% off 12. Release price was $80....still sells on the net $60-$75. Reviews are below. Let me know if you would like any. Read more. Michele
