Discerning viewers will note that this isn’t a standard half bottle. It’s a half liter, which is just a sip or two larger. It was all that was available though, and will have to do. It just seemed to fitting to have a Barbera in Asti, so I bent my own rules a bit.
before this fine wine and fine meal, we enjoyed a fabulous day of cycling in Lower Monferrato, a hilly district in northern Piemonte. See here, now.
