Red wine pairing for Osso Bucco via /r/wine

Red wine pairing for Osso Bucco

I will be serving Osso Bucco on Saturday and I was wondering what kind of red wine would you serve with it? It will be made in a classic milanese way, although I will had some diced tomatoes to the sauce (which, I know, is kind of controversial but I think it will had depth to the plate). I’ve been reading a bit on the suggested pairing and it seems to go all over the place…

Some people are suggesting Amarone Della Valpolicella or Barolo but I’m wondering if it would be a bit overwhelming (also, the oldest Barolo I’ve got is a 2013, and being from Montreal, Canada, my access to old bottles from independant sellers is pretty much non-existent). I’m looking for a red as much as as possible. Not saying I’d buy anything at any price, but I’d like to hear what you think, regardless of the budget!

Any ideas or prior successful pairing?

Wine stuff? via /r/wine

Wine stuff?

I’ve been drinking wine for about a year and haven’t looked into anything like decanters or wine stops or anything, can anybody recommend a good place to buy this kind of stuff?

I found a site called whiskeywineshop and prices look good but wanted to ask if there’s anywhere else or any tips people may have

WSET Level 2 self study? via /r/wine

WSET Level 2 self study?

I have recently completed level 1 with CMS, and am considering going for WSET level 2. The confusion I have is whether self study is an option? If so, how does one go about registering for the exam? I called my only local training provider from WSET’s website, and was told I have to take their class, in order to sit for the exam.

Thank you.
