Rioja Tempranillo 2018

Has all the silly stuff on the label. Flag like, face of ancient lord, weird crown on an egg symbol, and raised print on the name. Only subtle thing is that it’s grey. Lovely red, red rose color in the glass. Smells great. Flowers, rose hips, rocks in rain, wood. Flavors are also excellent. Savory edge with nice smoke. Plenty of tart berries. More rose hip and citrus. Some black tea. Almost an earl grey tone. This is a steal of a Rioja from Gross Out. Under $10 I think and it’s dense, complex and full of flavors that Rioja does so well often. — 7 days ago

Gamma Etna Bianco Carricante 2018

Delectable Wine

Dusty yellow flowers, smoke, crushed stone, nectarine and hints of hazelnut lift up from the 2018 Etna Bianco Gamma, creating a deeply alluring display. It’s soft and textural, balancing ripe orchard fruits against hints of sour green citrus and salty mineral tones. Notes of young mango and peach linger, along with a subtle buzz of residual acidity, all under a pretty air of inner florals. This highly enjoyable Carricante is showing beautifully already, but it should also excel for a number of years in a cold cellar. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2021)

Federico Superiore Emilia-Romagna Sangiovese 2019

Super mellow Sangiovese. Drank last night and the memory’s hazy. A- table wine I would say. — 3 months ago
