Tar and roses are prominent. Fresh cut herbs. Still tight. Saved a glass for tomorrow. Even better after a day. More of the licorice started showing. Awesome — 5 days ago

Praruar Terre Siciliane Catarratto 2017

Delectable Wine
9.2

Good luck pulling your attention away from the 2017 Catarratto Praruar. All it takes is one tilt of the golden-amber-colored nectar in your glass, and its exotic bouquet of sugar-dusted ginger, dried nectarines, crushed green apple, geranium and mint creates a unique yet captivating display. This is powerful and deeply textural, with a pretty inner sweetness balanced by brisk acids and tart orchard fruits, complemented by savory brown spice and a mind-bending addition of cocoa toward the close. For all of its density, the Praruar turns squeaky-clean through the finale, yet still full of lively energy, resonating on floral-tinged peaches and pears. Frankly, this is probably the most interesting interpretation of Catarratto that I’ve ever experienced; but be aware that it is unabashedly an orange-style wine, which won’t appeal to all palates.

Very good easy to drink, semi sweet. Might be really good with some carbonation and fruit like fresh mango for a sangria! — 8 days ago

Il Sangiò 2018

Came across this white sangiovese and had to try it. A clean crisp refreshing white that reminds me of a sauvignon blanc. Interesting and very good on this 90+ degree Sunday. — 20 days ago

Il Marroneto

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Color is translucent ruby. On the nose is dust, tobacco, dried rose petal and cherry at first. Then pure, sweet red berries, red plum, black tea, dried cherries, orange peel, clove and fennel on the palate. Has the quality of being simultaneously crystalline, pure and concentrated. Tannins are fine and just gently brush the palate. Nice perception of sweetness. Elegant, Burgundian Brunello. Should develop nicely but it is already drinking so well, no need to wait. — 17 days ago

Tenuta di Biserno

Il Pino Toscana Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

In 1964, while looking for land to expand Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, Marchese Lodovico Antinori discovered & acquired property of Tenuta di Biserno near Bibbona. A blend of Merlot, Cab Sauv, Petit Verdot & Cab Franc, aged for 12 months in French oak, intense aromas of ripe currants & sweet spice. On the palate ripe black fruit flavors, elegant fine tannins with cacao & tobacco tones. Long ending with an earthy character. Nice. Consistent with ‘15 I tried. — 19 days ago
