Where is spring ?

Woke up to 22” of snow wed morning, the locals are going crazy
they have not seen snow like this in over 40/50 years.

Just a few days pryer to the snow storm of the century spring was
almost in full swing, green vineyards and clear skies

We were lucky for our first visitors this year it was sunny and dry for a
vineyard walk given by Tiziana (on right) from cantina Aurelio Settimo.

Followed by a tasting in the cantina (winery). The wines showed
very well especially the 1999 Barolo Tiziana opened as a treat.
It was a text book perfect Barolo, thank you Tiziana, the nose stayed
with me for a few days.
