Great little dinner party last evening with a couple of friends that enjoy food and wine as much as we do. The wines showed well, in particular, for me, a 2004 Luigi Pira Barolo. Balanced, rich, a little spice - perfect! Tastes how I think a Barolo should taste, and reminds me that I do like this producer (I had a mental note that I liked this producer from a couple of Barolo tastings that I have attended). And I had heard that 2004 was a good vintage, so this wine supports that.
