Castelvero Piemonte Barbara 2011Ciao amichi
I think I found the solution for tolerating responding to half-baked responses from NYC singles on dating websites
- Grab your laptop,
- A bottle of wine
- A bag of Godiva Dessert Dark Chocolate Truffles
- Draw an Aveeno bubble bath
- ignore the exorbitantly demanding dog.
…ONLY DARK CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES! We’re still protecting our waistlines less we die single and alone (life expectancy for the dog is only ~14 years so he’ll be put out of his misery sooner than later..you on the other hand have years of suffering ahead).
With the aforementioned and your dog locked in the other part of the apartment nothing can upset you. Not even the 13th girl who writes you back and tells you (unsurprisingly) she’s bi-sexual and doesn’t believe in gender roles.
Digressing. Anyway, my friend from London who’s into all this crazy New Age shit sent me some aroma therapy tablets that releases a floral sent during a hot bath. I think its suppose to relax you, and yes I do feel relaxed but I don’t know if that’s the aroma therapy or the bottle of Castelvera Barbera 2011 I obtained though nefarious means. (I’m 3 glasses in). Anyways, review time…

Review: Piemonte is a city in Northwest Italy know for their Barbera and Barolo and both made primarily with the Nebbiolo grape.
This red wine by Castelvero is made with Barbera, one of the most widely planted grapes in Italy.
Best consumed young this dry red has a rip red fruit and tobacco nose, medium-bodied and balanced (not harsh tannin or acid) fruity palate, and a pleasant cherry finish.
I very much enjoyed this wine and it goes fantastically with red sauce pasta! This is an easy to drink red wine that goes great with dinner and with an even easier to swallow price point should (and in my case will be) a staple in your wine rack.
