another fantastic wine tasting with the hong kong wine society

hong kong right now is incredibly dynamic in terms of wine events and formal tastings and i beleive it is probably the best place to be for a wide-eyed neophyte like me who is super eager to learn and discover as much as i can about wine.

and so, on last friday, i was extremely fortunate to be part of another incredible tasting hosted by nigel bruce and the wine society of hong kong.  the theme was "vertical of mature barolo and barbaresco - 1952 - 1990) and it included:

Barolo Borgogno Riserva 1952
