TreVenezie Rosso (11/07)

A perfectly mellow evening.

With close to 7 years under our belt, never before had we specifically blind-tasted Trentino-Alto Adige, Veneto, or Friuli. Odd, but true. I figured that the category (especially the request to not bring Valpolicellas) would bring duplicate performers due to the lack of playful Northeast Italian red options in the Austin area. Pleasantly surprised, we only had one duplicate and the two bottles showed strong contrast to each other. Gotta love that bottle variation. With the exception of one bottle, all wines received at least one vote in someone’s top 6. Thanks to all who played!

The brown-bag ID names were super heroes. Take the Super Hero quiz and find out who you really are… Apparently, I’m Iron Man (whoever that is).
