Well – Our wine cellar leans towards reds… big reds. Our favorites are Chateauneuf du Pape and Amarone della Valpolicella Classico – had an unbelievable bottle this weekend – 2006 Masi Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico – simply the stuff that dreams are made of – dense, jammy with intense dried fruit and dark, bittersweet chocolate – it lasted forever on the palate with seemingly infinite layers of complexity. Not cheap, probably $65 retail, but what a way to spend $65 bucks! Yum!
