Sangiovese is really becoming one of my "go to" grapes.

Have you tried Montevertine? Outside of some Brunellos (Poggio di Sotto, Soldera, Le Ragnaie, Colleone, etc.) it's one of the best expressions of Sangiovese.

BYOB dinner on Friday. Took a 2008 Sea Smoke Ten (good, but way too young). Also took a 2005 Huet Clos du Bourg Demi-sec and a half bottle of a 2005 Huet Clos du Bourg Molleaux Premier Tre (from a half bottle). Interesting tasting two different wines from the same grape/maker/vineyard/vintage expressed so differently. Brought the demi-sec to have with the fish and gumbo dishes. It was awesome. One of my favorites. 1er Tre was for dessert (bread pudding). Tasted them side-by-side at the end of the night. The 1er Tre was good, but also too young. Should deepen and soften with time. The regular bottling Demi-sec is just killer right now though.

Having a 2008 Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch Chard tonight with salmon. Really great. Not your typical oak/butter bomb.

I've been enjoying Langhe Nebbiolos a lot lately, great wine for $20-$25 and typically can be drink young.

So I tried a Langhe bianco. Didn't like it as much as I hoped I would, for $17.

Had a Villa Creek rose with sole meuniere and a simple salad last night. It was an excellent dinner.

I really like the Borgogno Langhe Nebbiolo, it's pretty reliable. What's the bianco, Arneis?

Paolo Scavino, whose Nebbiolo I like a lot. The white was meh.

IIRC Langhe Bianco is usually Sauv Blanc & Chard
