Sep 28th 2007 2:23PM Regarding your recent item reporting on Italian "Hitler Wine", please note that we have tried this vintage and are able to report the following:
This wine is exceedingly bold, with a very bitter after-taste. Doesn't go well with Russian food, completely dominates French cuisine, but can be successfully paired with pasta or sushi. Palette can best be cleansed with U.K. malt whiskeys and, especially, American domestic brews.
Hitler wine has a full bodied taste with hints of blackcurrant, leather, gunpowder, steel, brick, and burnt wood. "This is a bottle with a message in it, and the message is 'beware'. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding."
Ultimately its taste will die in the cellar. Even so, this vintage may occasionally still be found in rural South American cafes.
