Tuscan Wine from a fine Italian collection

Share

A couple of years ago... No, it just seems as if February 25th, 2020, was a couple of years ago... We had a lovely dinner with friends at Popina, a Brooklyn favorite that we sorely miss**. The theme was old Brunello, and it was a great night for wine (and great food, and happy conversation). It was a revelation to me, and a real pleasure to try many fine wines, especially the Barbi - we had 1964, 1967, 1970, and 1985 - all terrific bottles. When the time comes - soon, we hope, but not too soon - you should have dinner at Popina; if your'e really very lucky that will be when you can eat in their garden. Meanwhile, more excellent old Brunello and Chianti is offered here, for you to enjoy at home.

Old Brunello, and James O'Brien, partner at Popina, 2/25/20                                                                                  

 

Some of the Ruffinos still have their original boxes. Historically one of the largest Chianti producers, Ruffino's top wine is the Riserva Ducale, a blend of their best grapes from different sites. Friends report that the old Ducale's are excellent wines. From my own tastings, I heartily recommend the Badia a Coltibuono Chiantis. Jamie Wolff
