Benvenuto

Calabria Zibibbo 2021

Floral, lychee, stone fruit but dry and delicate. No haze or sediment. Really amazing orange wine. One of my trend faves. — 13 days ago

Cilento Aglianico 2012

Rubber and coffee grounds at first, but it’s just some primary funk blowing off. Then sappy with tamarind, nice texture and sweetness. Intriguing, and increasingly delicious. — 11 days ago

Good sparkling wine with balanced stone fruit flavours and a bright medium finish. Totally unassuming, fizzy fun on the palate. — 20 days ago

Cirò Rosé Blend

What’s cool is the almost orange copper color, & the seriously savory flavor profile. Had w 4th of July bbq ribs & it held its own. — 6 days ago

Pala

Riserva Cannonau di Sardegna 2017

This past Friday night I opened the 2017 Pala Cannonau di Sadengna Reserva. This is a 100% Garnacha from Serdiana, Sardegna, Italy.

On the nose there is strawberry, raspberry, cherry, licorice, tobacco, cinnamon and earth.

On the palate I am finding strawberry, cherry, raspberry, licorice, cinnamon, leather, dried herbs and earth.

This wine is medium to medium + body a nice smooth mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + grippy tannins that leave you with a long red fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone's weekend was eventful and are looking forward to the week ahead. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Oreno Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2014

9.0

Opened 24hrs ago, and this has declined on day 2.
Quite rustic yesterday. Even more so today. Acidity and tannins are youthful. Lots of blueberries and plums, suggest this is more of a Bdx than a super Tuscan. Overall, a touch gnarly and I’m not convinced it will turn the corner.
