Marchesi de' Frescobaldi

Massovivo Toscana Vermentino 2018

This Italian white has a most interesting presence in the glass. The pale yellow liquid has a nose which is quite herbaceous, showing notes of sage, anise and oregano. The palate brings forth some citrus fruit - Meyer lemon - and a boatload of minerals and salinity. There is quite a racy acidity, too. Like a good Vermentino should, the wine leaves a sense of the seashore on the finish. — 8 days ago

Pinot Grigio

I’ve bought this bottle probably 8 times now. I love it. For me, on the nose it gives off a smell of straw, oak and fruit. It is mid-light weight. — 9 days ago

Primzin

Primitivo Zinfandel

Not a Zinfandel fan but love Primitivo though I know they are pretty much the same grape. This blend is delicious! 78% Primitivo from Italy and 22% Zin from our west coast. Perfect. Very smooth. 👍 — 11 days ago

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2017

Another one from last night’s birthday dinner. I had a little left to revisit on day 2 and it is still amazing. What a classic. I could sit with this for a long time. The smokey, deep dark fruit/licorice, and velvety mouthfeel, all make this wine shine. This one will definitely improve with more age. Easily one of the top 5 wines of the year for me. — 3 days ago

Ciavola Nera

L'eremita Bianco 2019

I got told Mantonico( this is 100% mantonico)was the most interesting white variety in Calabria and i must agree
It has an intense nose of honey, fruit and mineral
It has its balance amd a good length
Potential to age a few years easily
Good freshness
Label only produced in 2019 in perhaps a couple of thousands of bottles
I'd buy this again for sure

Vigneti del Vulture

Pipoli Basilicata Greco Fiano 2019

Basilicata is a mountainous region in southern Italy, where you’ll find the majestic Mount Vulture, an inactive volcano, which is home to some of Basilicata’s best-known wines made from the Aglianico variety, a dark, thick-skinned variety.

Yet here we have a luscious white wine made with 50% Greco and 50% Fiano varieties offering a concentrated intensity of floral, white blossom, guava, passion fruit, melon, and mango aromas and flavors that will knock your socks off.

This wine is refreshing and easy-drinking. It would be an excellent solo sipper or complementary pairing with a variety of seafood dishes.

Vigneti del Vulture was founded in 2009 with an aim of producing wines from indigenous varieties, made in an internationally-appealing and accessible style. This lovely wine hits the mark.

Vigneti del Vulture, Pipoli Basilicata Greco-Fiano (2019). ABV 12.5%.

Tenuta di Budonetto (Maurigi)

Costa all'Ombra Sauvignon Blanc 2010

8.9

See previous note - impressive longevity on this Sicilian SB: honeyed oxidative notes, lemon curd, gooseberry, bit grassy and then when it warmed up: the telltale spearmint. What a treat, really unique although starting it’s inevitable decline. — 5 days ago
