Antica Terra

Angelicall Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

Terrific rose of pinot noir from Maggie Harrison of Antica Terra. This is not your garden-variety rose: serious skin contact time coupled with her incredible wine-making abilities has produced a really substantive wine. Reminds me a bit of Manfred’s SQN roses (not surprising, I guess, since Maggie worked with Manfred for I believe a decade or so before striking out on her own with what I think is the best winery in the Willamette Valley). Do yourself a favor and try to snag some of this. Terrific juice. — 10 days ago

I am about as big a fan of this rosé as anyone. Regardless of price, I absolutely love it. I know you also enjoy Andremily (as do I)…have you tried their rosé? It’s bigger and more rich in style, akin to SQN rosés, more so than the Angelicall. But, I believe those three rosés belong in a category all to their own!

@Shay A, I have had thd Andremily (only bought 3 - should have gotten more, because these will age for a couple of years. Check out Paix sur Terre’s rose of mourvedre. Lighter style, but Ryan Pease is growing those mourvedre grapes specifically to make rose.

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2015

A truly fine young Tig, this 375 was strutting it’s exceptionally smooth and long Sangiovese with class. The last sip suggests a cellar-dweller will be rewarded. — 3 days ago

Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2017

Consistent fantastic. Balanced with a zing. A different kind of chard thanks to the grechetto. Great accompaniment to the fresh fish dinner. Bright and nice acidity. — 6 days ago

Antica Masseria Jorche

Riserva Primitivo di Manduria 2016

This dark wine has a fruity nose of blackberry and plum, but there are some more savory notes as well. Black pepper, cigar box and black olive also come through. On the palate, licorice and plums are in the forefront of one of the fruitier flavor profiles I have tasted in Apulian Primitivos. The 16% alcohol is not as overpowering as I imagined it would be. The tannins are fairly forceful and the acidity is refreshing. This wine drinks really well and will pair nicely with a marbled rib eye steak. — 23 days ago

Tenuta Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Vermentino 2017

A blend of 65% Cab Sauv, 20% Cab Franc & 15% Merlot, note more CF and no Petit V as in prior years. Deep Ruby with aromas of black and red fruits and sweet cedar aromas. On the palate black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors with vanilla, tobacco and oak spice. Smooth and refined tannins, long ending with sweet earthy tones. Wow!! Need to decant! — 7 days ago

Too young. Wanted to see and it was very solid but putting the rest under wraps for another 7 years. — a month ago
