UNC and 2006 Felsina Chianti Classico

UNC breakdown - Although they finished the season as the number three team in the country and locked up a number one seed, the Tar Heels have underperformed so far this year (even before the ACC Tournament loss to FSU). That may be a scary thought for Tar Heels haters, but when the reigning national player of the year can't even win conference MVP his senior season (even if it does go to his teammate), and you lose to Maryland after leading by double digits in the second half, it's just not the season Roy Williams and his boys anticipated. With lightning quick speed and deadly shooters in the back court, the Tar Heels may be poised to peak at the right time. Ty Lawson's swollen toe, one of the hardest working seniors in the nation and the basketball gods will decide the team's fate soon.

2006 Felsina Chianti Classico - Chianti can be a fickle wine, and while some may thrill, others can easily disappoint. Still young, this wine needs some time out of the bottle to open up and really show what it's made of. Given enough air, the power and fruit comes through and easily shows why Felsina is a reference point for all great Chianti.
