I can't believe that since the beginning of the Soccer World Cup, we have been watching an average of two Soccer games per day. For me, that's a lot of time spent in front of the TV, but watching these soccer games is simply too addictive!
Last weekend, we invited some friends to watch Argentina-Mexico, the first game of the round of 16. For the occasion, my sister in law brought an amazing soccer ball and shoe-shaped bottle of wine.
The wine inside was unfortunately not as memorable as the bottle itself. Produced by Cantine Fratelli Bellini, the Bellini Favola Vino da Tavola Rosso was a non vintage red blend of unspecified composition. It had a deep garnet color and some light cherry aromas on the nose. On the palate, it reminded me of some of the Chiantis of the past, too lean and tart to be well balanced. We finally switched to the fine 2002 Luigi Bosca Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva in honor of Argentina's victory.
