I did not find Italy or dried figs in my glass when I drank the Barbera d'Alba (2006) from Borgogno, I know 'tasted' sounds more polished but I did not swirl and sip that much.
I just enjoyed it with my dinner.
The poetic 'Italy and Figs' came from the tasting notes at Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant in San Francisco.
While writing About the merits of Brevity, I could not help but think how verbose and repetitive many wine reviews can be.
Shouldn't enjoying good wine and good food be simple pleasures?
