Never heard of that before, but doesn't mean it doesn't work.

Ditto- don't know why you'd need the added starch...

Cool, just bought a bottle of the 2003 vintage for $18 yesterday. Will report back. I believe they were selling the 2001 for $21.

did not partake in the Roulot. Instead, this from the 1998 vintage:

Nice! How was the Roulot and Costanti?
post #14454 of 17896
Lots of good stuff there. How was the Brunello? I had the 07 Costanti from a split a few weeks ago and I really liked it.

we didn't get to the Roulot, went right for the Cappella. The Brunello was awesome, perfectly aged.

I'm assuming I'd really enjoy that wine, and I hope you did, but I hate that label.

at least it's not this.

at least that one is trying to be douche and succeeding instead of trying to be unique and cool but failing.
