I was going to include this in my recent Barolo & Beyond class, but at the last minute, I swapped it out for the Oreste Buzio 2016 Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese.

Why?  A class on Barolo and similar wines needs a bit more gravitas. This bottle is just too damn joyful.

Fresh flowers and dark fruit on the nose, this bottle rocks a palate of fresh blackberries, cake spices, and a zesty finish. This is one of my favorite dinner wines. Especially good with a simple meal of rotisserie chicken and greens.
