Amy's wine tip for the day: Paolo Bea Santa Chiara 2011
Getting a little exotic today with an orange wine.
The importer says that "references in the archives of Montefalco, the beautiful hill town in Umbria, document the presence of the Bea family in this locality as early as 1500. This tiny estate is the classic Italian fattoria, producing wine, raising farm animals for trade and home consumption and working the land to produce olives, fruits and vegetables."
The wine itself is amber in color and kind of savory. Orange peel, nuts, herbs and spices.
Il Big del Giorno: Johnny Hoogerland
Today smells like a day when the peloton can't be bothered to keep the breakaway in check. So pick anyone from the group of people who escaped yesterday fairly intact and they may well stay away until the end.
