Billed with one of my favorite Italian words, “grilli” — literally “crickets”, colloquially “whims”. Pinkerton sings “Amore o grillo?” in Butterfly, wondering if his love is true.
The wine is a damn pleasurable pop and pour at $30. Ripe with sweet red fruit on the nose, and glides into an unctuous inky plum and cocoa thing on the palate. Very drinkable, would be a heavenly cheeseburger wine. @Delectable Wine this years blend is 80/20 Cab/merlot, no Sangiovese as in the title here. — 10 months ago
Just a hint of sweetness with some pears, apples and maybe? cotton candy. So refreshing and I just REALLY LOVE Riesling.
There was this German audio series when I was younger calling Bibi und Tina (also adapted to TV and film - it may have just been called Bibi Blocksberg back in the day) where there was this one character called Alexander von Falkenstein, and honestly every time I look at this label it’s difficult not to associate the name. Either way, it’s an incredibly good wine. — 3 years ago

Delicious. Dry but flavorful. Crisp. Light. Melon? — 8 months ago
This Pinot Blanc was badass. Some unusual melon character from Champagne. This was the 2013 and had a bit of oxidation but the acid was still enough that this was a broad, well drank champagne. Interesting that the green melon had flecks of chalk. The body was full and continued on the same line as the nose. Thanks Bibi Jis! — 2 years ago
