Italian Wine Arrives!

Woohoo! The wine that we ordered on our Italian adventure has arrived. That means two things: really good wine is in our loft (probably the best that has been in our home, ever), and I am seriously behind on documenting our adventures in Italy!

The wine arrived in a box that didn’t look quite big enough to hold 6 bottles. The cats “helped” with unpacking, of course!

More details to come on our amazing winery visit to Poggio Rubino, but we ordered some of their Rosso di Montalcino.

It is a DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) or “controlled designation of origin” wine, which basically means that where it comes from and how it is produced meets certain criteria.

I am sure we will be enjoying some of this wine soon, but we also will be saving some to age and enjoy at some point in the future!
