Wine dinner at Vena with good friends.
The chef really pulled out all stops and produced a great menu with plenty of pasta dishes. The main was a local lamb which was delicious, even the endearing of the fat was perfect.
The wine were excellent too, with 2 outstanding and rare bottles. The Montevertine, Ambra Dolce Montevertine, Thea di Maggio 1992, a white wine made out of Sangiovese. It was only produced in this year as the weather created noble rot on the grapes. The texture of the wine was like a Sauternes without the sweetness. The other one was 1967 Gaja Babaresco. Deep color, no oxidation hints on the nose, a hint of fruit still on the palate and a super long finish.
Most likely the only times in my life I will have the chance to drink those wines.
