My Old BUDDY VINNY
 
was part of the GREENWICH VILLAGE LES SICILIAN ENCLAVE
 
Hs father started La FOCACCERIA on 1st Avenue way back when ?
 
VINNY continued running La Focacceria until 2010 when sadly the doors 
 
were shuttered. Sadly because it was a cool old-school Sicilian Joint of which there was
 
no other quite like it in Manhattan. Brooklyn Yes but not in Manhattan, not ever
since I moved to New York in 1983 …

THREE GREAT BAROLO PRODUCERS

ELIO GRASSO , CAVALLOTTO , and ANDREA OBERTO

I had another tasty Barolo last night. Just one of so many hundreds over the years. Yes another tasty Barolo, I just love it. The Barolo in question was a bottle of BAROLO ANDREA OBERTO 2012.. All I can say is that I just sat back and enjoyed this wine after work one night with my friend Peter Mosconi. It was Peter’s and he brought it to the table. I took a sip and wow, I was flabbergasted, this wine was absolutely awesome. 

Drinking Barolo is always a special treat, and this time proved to be one of those extra specail ones, for sometimes the experience is good, at other time disappointing, and as with this night and this particular Barolo, the Andrea Oberto Vintage 2012, everything was just great, and just about as good as it gets, the Barolo was absolutely perfect and as I told Peter, you can buy a much more expensive Barolo, like one from Giaccomo Conterno or one of the Mascarello’s, or similar high-priced Barolo and now matter if you spent $300 or $500 or whatever price you paid, it wouldn’t matter, the Barolo could not be better than the one we were drinking tonight (Monday June 26, 2017) at Monte’s Trattoria, there could be no Barolo better than this, for this particular Barolo (Andrea Oberto Barolo 2012) was absolutely perfect. It was a Text Book Barolo and perfectly in balance which says it all. It was full of flavor, the classic Barolo flavors, like ; Cherry Fruit flavors with some nice full Dark Chocolate notes, a twinge of Tar, Truffles, and Violets. This Barolo had the right amount of weight to it, with correct acid, tannin, and everything you expect from a great Barolo, it was all there. Well I don’t want to go on and on on this that and everything, but quite simply the wine was I must say again, perfect and as good as it gets, and was purely a Joy to Drink. 

 

The MORAL of This Story is ; PERFECT BAROLO need Not Cost an ARM & a LEG !

BASTA !!!
