Quinta do Montalto

Uncondemned Medieval 2019

I have no idea(yet) of the grapes in this.
The label says the vines are up to 140 yrs.
N: Lots of blood, tobacco, saline qualities. Poured blind, one may think an earthy burg that’s young. Some dark berried fruit. Liquorice.
P: Very delicate, much lighter on the palate than the nose would lead. Open for an hour, no tannic grip yet. Lots of woodland flavors. Tempered ( my guess) by an Atlantic clime. Easy , yet 14°
Glad it came home with me.

Collezione di Famiglia Terre Siciliane Pinot Grigio 2020

The wine appears as a very pale yellow in the glass. Its nose suggests more citrus and minerals than flowers and fruit. The aromas come across as a savory salinity, not the dainty sweetness which afflicts many Pinot Grigio wines. The palate follows suit, with a bit of the sea in the flavor profile that centers largely on limes, lemons and grapefruit. The finish is medium long and the minerals are the lasting impression. The acidity is zippy and fresh enough for seafood and salad pairings. — 2 years ago

Simply put, just delicious to drink. Enhanced by a plate of red wine braised short ribs made it even more enjoyable. — 2 years ago

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Montalto Etna Bianco Carricante Blend

Tasted semi-blind and wrote down the same thing I did for the 2018: it smells like church! I’m trying to figure out why I wrote it, but the minerality is similar to what you smell when you enter an old white marble church. Maybe some of the florals too?
