The Searchers

Attending:
Marty
Justin
DL
Adam
Fredo (movie only)

Dinner:
Thin pizzas that Marty made entirely from scratch (including the sauce and crust)

Wine:
Santi 20007 Valpolicella.  We were really excited about this one; it's a ripasso, and valpolicella tends to be perfect with pizza.  But this was just kind of flat.  Nothing really wrong with it, but nothing especially right with it either.  For $17 we can do better.

DL is always talking about how much he likes montepulciano d'Abruzzo, and I can't argue with him on this.  This was a home run, sharp where it needed to be sharp and soft where it need to be that.  Very grape-y flavor, if that's not too stupid a thing to say.

"Who's going to fight me for the last piece?"

And a video, shot on my phone.  I didn't put much effort into this one, obviously, but I guess that's the peril of being the one who obsessively chronicles things.  This was during a break in the movie.
