Wifey’a back in the office (which could also be considered an orifice) pun intended. But she need not worry about her dinner…
This chard is just ok. One dimensional, lacks complexity. Expected much better from this winery.

Calabretta

Vecchie Vigne Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2010

Delectable Wine
9.4

Masses of crushed black cherries laced with Christmas spice, lavender and dusty cedar waft up from the 2010 Nerello Mascalese Vigne Vecchie. It’s fleshy and round upon entry, offering ripe cherries, plums and burnt citrus that saturate the palate. Brisk acids work hard to add vibrancy and lift, in spite of the staining of concentrated primary fruit that lingers throughout the finish. The result is one of gravelly tension yet also satisfaction, like biting into a fresh yet tart raspberry. The 2010 Vigne Vecchie is the current release for this bottling, which spends six or seven years refining in 50- to 70-hectoliter Slavonian oak botti prior to bottling. It’s an experience wine, to say the least. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2021)

Amendment XXI 21 Napa Valley Merlot 2017

Grapey and somewhat lacking in complexity/tannins. Tried it against a 2018 b cellars merlot and it didn’t match up well. — 7 hours ago

Domaine la Grand' Vigne

Vin de Provence Rolle Grenache Blanc 2020

Pretty, light salmon color. My nose picks up strawberry, grapefruit, and melon. Very light taste that rounds to a nice delicate but fast finish. Sipping while I read, but this would be excellent with shrimp or fish. Probably my third fave rosé in this price range, after Miraval and Gerard Bertrand. — 3 days ago

This wine was really great with BBQ ribs and chicken, a smooth but a little spicy wine would certainly drink again. — 8 days ago

I think I am, too. The whole portfolio for 17 and 18 vintages have fallen so short.

Tenuta Roveglia

Riserva Vigne di Catullo Lugana Trebbiano 2016

Nose has wet rocks, white flowers, green herbs, fresh cut hay field and lime peel & zest.

Palate has fresh lemon, crushed green herbs, under-ripe lychee, green apple peel with great lingering acidity.

This particular Lugana is actually Turbiana (Verdicchio for this village), not Trebbiano.
