He had me at Seasoning the Glasses....

Lunch at del Posto in NYC today. Sommelier appeared out of nowhere as I drooled over the beautiful, wide and deep list. We had a nice discussion over what to enjoy with a garganelli wtih ragu bolognese - a chewy, country sangiovese for $75. On the low end of the list though it has many approachable wines.

But when he rolled over the cart with two big riedel bordeaux glasses, a decanter and a small glass for his tasting, I knew what was about to go down. He seasoned the glasses! SIGH... I have to say, I dine out a lot in this city and haven't seen seasoning for quite some time, and not for a $75 wine.

I swoon....

BTW it was a Rosso di Montalcino Gianni Brunelli 07.
