Wine of the Week

This past week was a little special, because my dad (Signor Tony) turned 50! The wine consumption was slightly higher than usual, as you can see in the foto below, and the wines were incredible. This picture is from the “infamous” Pylsa & Barolo, which was located in Barolo this year. And another special feature this year was the bottles: all magnum!
