    Default TN: Amarone, Greco, Burg

    With salmon in a 3-mustard crust, brown rice, and spinach, the 2009
    Pernot Bourgogne showed well again, classic white Burg profile with
    apple and pear fruit, a light hint of hazelnut, soil. B+

    Some friends wanted to go to Queens for dinner, we ended up at
    Trattoria
    l'Incontro in Astoria. Betsy had burrata and proscuitto, I had grilled
    octopus. Betsy had branzino while I had tigerfish with a caper/
    tarragon lemon sauce (we also had a taste of friend's venison and
    scallops). We split a bottle of Feudi di San Gregoria Greco di Tufo (I
    believe 2008, not listed on winelist but I think I remember
    correctly). Low to middling acid, ripe fruits, almonds, not bad. B/B-

    We were back early, and I wanted a bit of upgrade. Opened a 2001
    Brigaldara Amarone della Valpolicella Classico*half-bottle. I'm not a
    big Amarone fan, but I like this. Light lift to nose, not as heavy as
    many Amarones, seems fresh, has deep plum, raisin, anise, and floral
    notes. Pretty fun. B/B+

    Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
    wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
    drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
    promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.*

    The Feudi San Gregoria Greco di Tufo tends to be my go to wine when
    faced with few options. Not bad but not compelling but seems to match
    well with fish and seafood.
