perbacco cafe /unpleasant wine experience

jlix | Jul 14, 2007 06:42 AM

We love this place and go once a month or so--great, inventive homemade pastas, wonderful small dishes, changing seasonal menu. Last night they were out of the relatively cheap wine we usually order, so the sommelier suggested another one and offered to let our party of 4 taste it. It was MUCH fruitier then our usual choice--but he became extremely aggresive when I said this and insisted that I was wrong. I could see things becoming unpleasant (and ruining our evening) so I backed down and accepted the wine. It was 20 bucks MORE then our usual bottle. I feel like a total idiot this morning.
