Terre Del Corno

Cordani

Oracolo White Blend 2018

Very elegant orange wine from a blend of Malvasia, Ortrugo, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato. 10-15 days of skin contact in stainless steel. I also used some to cook spaghetti alle vongole, but the subtle acidity wasn’t the best for cooking. Drink it instead! — 16 days ago

Il Chiosso

Terre Moreniche Ghemme Nebbiolo 2015

Lyle Fass
9.1

Exuberant nose. Cherries. Chestnut. Gamey. Mega spice. Wild. Untamed. Classic Ghemme. Floral. Can tell it’s from a warm vintage. But in a good way. Warm vintage, cooler region. Palate is juicy and ripe with those rustic, deep Ghemme tannins. Good concentration. Nice depth. Not much finesse so far. But intense flavor and length. Rustic for sure. Not showing as well as last bottle. I’ll be back. — 20 days ago

Pithos Bianco Terre Siciliane Grecanico 2018

Interesting medium body, minerally white wine from southern Sicily. Picked up an earthy edge. Went well with shrimp scampi and linguini in peppery garlic sauce. Would have scored it higher wasn’t it for the fact that at the end it went a little flat and wasn’t able to hold or attention or interest. — 7 days ago

Giulio Larcher Trento DOC CLOU Pas Dosè Chardonnay Pinot Nero 2014

This was a huge surprise. Direct from Le Volpe e l’uva in Firenze, I was blown away by how good this was, especially given the price (~$30 I believe). Just terrific. — 2 days ago

Agricola Virà

Terre Siciliane Catarratto

Got a bottle with dinner from Night + Market. Really liked the funk, color, and mineral. 2019 label is a lot cooler and “arty” looking. — 8 days ago

Cantine Sassarini

Refreshing. Coats the palate. Nutty but slightly sweet. Lemongrass. — 25 days ago

Bonavita

Terre Siciliane Rosato 2019

Deep dark ruby rosato. Rosehips, strawberry, cherry, banana, citrus, cinnamon and pie crust. A pure and beautiful wine. Light, elegant and simultaneously concentrated. Long satisfying finish. — 13 days ago

I seem to have run out of bad wine? Or maybe just too generous

@Josh Morgenthau grade inflation. Happens to the best of us.

@Lyle Fass even those who sell the wine they’re grading? How scandalous! ; )

Barone Montalto

Passivento Terre Siciliane Rosso

Taste of fruit, licorice and vanilla. Full-bodied but easy to drink. Suitable for chips as well as meat dishes. — 4 days ago

Arianna Occhipinti

SP68 Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Frappato 2019

Every year a beautiful lean potion of dark fruits and the sea. Plums, dried mission figs, black cherries brined in ocean water and lemon juice with flecks of Maldon. — 11 days ago
