Dad, husband, basic wine rookie, and amateur chef. I'm drinking and cooking every night to catch up. Local to the Fort Worth area.
Love this value wine from Michele Chiarlo. It's produced on Gavi from the Cortese grape. Light citrus notes of lemon, melon and crisp green apple. If you hold this wine to your ear it will whisper a floral bouquet of lavender. Nice finish. Great paired with seafood, pasta, or any lighter dish. — 3 months ago
Very tight and earthy out of the bottle even after a double decant. After an hour + this opened to amazing blackberry, blueberry and loads of cherry. Tannins and finish are just elegant. Might be one of the best Malbecs ever from Ladera. — a month ago
