Latium, Italy

La Marca

Prosecco

This Italian bubbly produces a thick, festive foam. The nose brings a floral element to match up with lemon, lime and grapefruit aromas. On the palate, a nice apple flavor meets the citrus. It is a sweet taste and the finish follows the same way. Fun and frolicking Prosecco. — 13 hours ago

Vino Rosso Nero d'Avola Blend 2019

This blend of Nero d’Avola, Frappato (locally called Nerocapitano), and Grenache is a Sicilian beauty! 💕 🇮🇹

It was lovingly nurtured and cultivated by hand and in a manner paying respect to the land from which it came, with minimal intervention, by husband and wife team Filippo and Nancy Rizzo. 🍇 🍷👌

Lamoresca, Rosso, Sicily, Vintage 2019, ABV 13.5%. @lamorescavini

👁 It’s a medium purple hue.

👃 On the nose it has a medium(+) intensity of youthful, bright, and yet savory aromas that include ripe raspberry, plum, black cherry, rhubarb, violet, clove, nutmeg, peppercorn, licorice, leather, tobacco, wet earth, and game.

👄 On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium acidity, a medium(+) body, medium alcohol, medium tannins, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. The finish lingers. 👏👏👏

Cheers to this lovely, highly delicious wine 🍷

Peach Semi-Sweet Sparkling Blend

Excited to repurchase! Pleasant peach flavor, sweet but not sickly, and nice effervescence. Goes down real easy and Mose likes too — 3 days ago

Masottina

Brut Rosé Blend 2020

This pink Prosecco smells like red ripe cherries, with more of the same on the palate. Flavors of citrus join in, lime and grapefruit mainly. The bubbles are generous, but fade quickly. They are fun while they last, though. — 2 days ago

Fingardo

Sangiovese

I really enjoyed this bottle. Not going to be for everyone. Very heavy on the plum n blackberry flavor. Long linger. Bottle says velvety. I would say that’s a way to describe the taste. Textured with a fruity finish. Complex but fun. Wish I had some chocolate to try with it. I wouldn’t drink with a meal. Needs to be enjoyed on its own. — 5 days ago

Calcabrina Fattoria Biodinamica

Foglio 61 Umbria Sangiovese 2018

Nose has dried blueberries, blueberry jam, mashed blackberry, sun scorched soil, wet green herbals and slight alcohol heat.

Palate has rich, ripe blackberry, ripe black cherry, cocoa powder, anise, dry sandy soil with mild tannins. Nice acidity, medium finish.

The 1/5 addition of Sagrantino is perfect, really adding some depth to the nose and palate. We still have a few of these, suggest holding until 2023+ for future bottles.

Blend of 80% Sangiovese / 20% Sagrantino.

@Joshua Fisher Yup, and they're loving our 'new' New England weather, more like Vancouver than I've ever experienced recently, rain, warm, rain, warm, rain, rain, rain... Nothing seems to dry out.

Barone Ricasoli

Casalferro Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2015

The nose is full throttle from the get-go—a surprise reminding me of my recent trip to Magic Mountains, as West Coast Racers is a roller coaster with no slow-burn climb uphill. Oh no—you zoom out the gates and go through a series of twisty-windy loops and it’s a shock to your system but then you’re like “let’s do it again!”
And so with this. That explosive nose is savory and earthy like a blackberry compote kissed by a forest spirit. On the palate the tannins are the epitome of velvety and well-integrated. I get all the aromas of the nose here, plus some more red fruit. And vanilla. And then again with almost an…iodine herb thing I always associate with Italian wines, no matter the grape. And then a hint of…Montenegro? Is this the wine for both roller coaster and amaro aficionados? Stand-up Merlot. Do it.

Torresella

Extra Dry Prosecco 2020

This light pink sparkling wine has a nice froth in the glass, which dissipates quickly. Aromas of strawberry, cherry and a touch of toast lie on the nose, while the palate brings some citrus and stone fruit to the party. The finish is medium length and carries with it a bit of earthiness. — 3 days ago

Azienda Agricola Valentini

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Cerasuolo 2009

Give a ring if there's anything else like it as a rose
It mingles with light reds easily, but has the fun part of a fresh rose with the complexity that unfolds over and over
The elegance is somewhere between a Volnay and a Barolo
Cola, raspberries, sweet tobacco, white choc, salted caramel, mou, forest floor, mushroom and slightly grillée
Nearly fizzy when opened
It was worth the wait
A star!!

@Travis W somewhere here in Melbourne i have seen Valentini Trebbiano and Montepulciano (very expansive, but absolutely mind blowing), but never the cerasuolo which IMO is one of the best rose ever🤫
