Ü Pastine Portofino Bianchetta Genovese 2020

Tasted with marvelous branzino with fresh herb and tomato “spring caponata,” this wine was an ideal embodiment in a glass of the “macchia,” the Italian version of the Rhône’s “garrigue.” Bright pear, apple, lemon and yellow plum with an underlying steely minerality and wonderful sensations of hay and salt air-tinged brush. Surprisingly juicy but also lean, it’s an ideal wine for fish — a year ago

Amorous Sangiovese 2018

First Chianti style spent money on. Pretty good definite tomato and acid. This one has tannins as I’ve come to expect from macchia.

Dubious Petite Sirah 2021

Inky black violet color.
Pungent charred oak and macerated berries.
Firm tannins reinforce the oak, though not lactic or toasty.
Full bodied with a long finish invites thoughtful considerations between luxurious sips.

Podere del Visciolo

Pian Della Macchia Toscana Red Blend 2015

Medium depth with strong enough tannins to give it the structure it needs. Surprisingly had vanilla flavors along with violet fruit and good round notes. Different than most Italians I’ve had but still a delicious wine. — 4 years ago

Hassan Grenache Blend 2017

Distinctly Sardinian with macchia brush of wild herbs persistent on the nose and palate, floral loft, red and black fruit follow, beautiful wine with a balance between traditional and modernity shining through — a year ago


Petite Sirah 2017

Great as expected for the price and grape. Not sure if I will buy again I’ve had better value for the price, particularly Macchia petite Syrah. — 4 years ago
