2012 Tasca D’Almerita Regaleali Rosso, Sicily

I’m not a big drinker. In all honesty, it had been two years since I drank anything before a glass of this wine. I wasn’t sure how I would feel, so I limited myself to one glass. I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t get too drunk, and I definitely wanted to be sure that I wasn’t going to flare the next day.

The wine tasted great! It was all I could do to limit myself to the one glass. I think that I would list this as one of my favorites. It was smooth, all the way through. I tend to notice a sharp end in some wines, and this wasn’t the case. It was a good, soft but full body and the flavor reflected that. It was a deep wine, for sure and I enjoyed that.

So, the big question…did I flare? I didn’t! I had that feeling in my liver that you get after a drink or two, the next day. But, I didn’t have a headache or any nausea. More importantly, I didn’t flare. I think this might be because I waited so long in between drinks. I didn’t drink any water during but had a bit after. It wasn’t much, so I don’t think that had anything to do with it.
