Piancarda Rosso Conero Montepulciano 2020

Happy agreement between Italianismo (made up the word for Italian wines' ability to be indelibly Italian) and rusticity. The nose is prettily tart--blood orange and lavender. The palate brings slightly rough in a pleasant way. Savory but a little bloody with an earthy metallic zing running through it. I didn't expect to be as into this as I am but here we are. INTO it. — 22 days ago

Gioacchino Piancarda Rosso Conero 2017

This is a Rosso Conero (now just Conero) that does not try to be something it’s not. Most Conero producers seem to want to have their wines be 2000s-styled “international wines,” replete with overextraction and lots of French oak. But this is perfectly within itself. Conero is supposed to be like this is: smoky, earthy, dark berries, tannins present but well-managed, good acids, please get me a bowl of pasta in a red meat sauce. Which I’m eating tonight. Thanks to my brother for giving this to me. — 2 years ago

Grosso Agontano Montepulciano 2012

Good choice. Ready to drink just at opening. Oak. Fruity, chocolate nuance. Blue black fruits flavor. Enough spiciness. 2012 @1280, Ascent, 201224-210102 — 3 years ago


Supèra Verdicchio di Matelica DOC 2021

McCarthy & Schiering - $16

Ripe apple and lemon zest on the nose.  Same on the palette with a slight saltiness, a little acidity, and a honey-like finish.  I personally really enjoyed this, might go back for more.

Montereale Marche Sangiovese 2015


Fabuloso… elegant, drinks like a Chianti Classico but a bit feral (in a good way) - more complexity w/impeccable balance. This is one to seek out - the Marche just doesn’t get enough love — a year ago

Serra del Conte Verdicchio del Castelli di Jesi Classico 2021

Unique aromas of orange pith and fennel, weighty body with medium acidity from orange zest flavors, and lots of herbaceous notes with the fennel coming through. — 6 months ago

Podium Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Verdicchio 2019

A beautiful rendition full of yellow fruit (apple, pear, lemon, melon) with ginger spice and viscosity of honey but not cloying which adds a nice weight on the finish. The real strength lies in the panorama of flavors that blend together on the palette and expands the texture nicely while combining the fresh and sour flavors — 8 months ago


La Selezione Giocchino Garofoli Verdicchio 2008

Loud and proud!
Very dense and structured wine screaming for creamy, rich, truffled food. Or lobster. Would be fine, as well.
