Gemona del Friuli - Trieste 169 km
Farewell party for the Giro. A small reward for any sprinters who didn't die crying on the Zoncolan.
Amy's wine tip for the day:
First off, thanks to everyone for allowing me to share my wines.
Today, a pink wine, as requested by Chris: Nusserhof Lagrein Kretzer Rosato 2012
As I had planned on a different wine, (the very excellent Ronchi di Cialla Ribolla Gialla) the geography is a bit off on this one. Maybe we can pretend to be back in Alto Adige? Made from another one of those Alto Adige red grapes that I adore, this time: Lagrein.
Herbs, spices, cherries. Yum. A fine way to finish the race. Now time to start on the Wines of the Tour prep.
Il Big del Giorno: Elia Viviani
I know he's not Colombian and no, he's not Australian either, but it just feels like Cannondale need to get something out of this race (and no, 15th place for Basso is not something ).
