Villa Dei Greci

Agricola Punica

Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi Carignane 2016

This is a very good modern style Italian. The nose is really fragrant, almost Napa like with plenty of dark, sweet fruit blended with lavender, vanilla and light oak. Palate is smooth and rounded with minimal acidity and a nice long slightly sweet and smokey finish, there is also a little licorice in here. Alcohol is on the high side but this is well worth trying, I really enjoyed it. — 7 days ago

Poggio dei Gorleri

Shalok Riviera Ligure di Ponente Granaccia 2015

The wine producer Poggio dei Gorleri, from the small hamlet Gorleri, is located high above the Ligurian coast near Imperia, called the Ligure di Ponente, Italy. The producers’ focus is predominantly on the Pigato grape, delivering minerally, white fruit, very fresh white wines. This Shalok stands out from the white wines produced. Made of 100% Granaccia/Grenache/Alicante, this wine is bursting with red fruits. Quite dark with flavours of berry/blackberry fruit, some chocolate, some wood, with very smooth tannines. Only 1,122 bottles produced. — 7 days ago

Cantina dei Produttori Nebbiolo di Carema

Carema Nebbiolo 2016

THIS is my catnip- well constructed, ethereal, rose scented & colored Nebbiolo from a master. Light (13%) but has a quiet power if you lower your stimuli & quiet the effen’ down. I can drink this all week. Polaner. — 2 hours ago

Tenuta Degli Dei Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2016

2nd wine in Peploes job lot, nothing more to add SIMPLY STUNNING — 2 days ago

le Rocche dei Babari

Primanebbia Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

Nose has ripe cherry, over-ripe strawberry, stack of new encyclopediae, dry autumn leaves and muddy mint plant.

Palate has spring cherries, (faint) peppermint leaf, old leather, charred San Marzano tomato, barrel notes (not oak) with medium tannins. Not giving up too much on the palate with 2+ hours decanting.

Needs much more air tonight, or years; we have another bottle and it can likely rest for about a decade (2028+).

It totally makes sense as a descriptor- not old books, new. New leather binding etc. I was only half kidding around; it seems like an aroma that would be good in moderation.

La Marca di San Michele

CapoVolto Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2018

With each bottle, I enjoy these that much more. This has the crisp character of a seaside wine, but also the power & detail of honeyed peaches. It brings the delight & beautiful, approachable fruit but is wonderfully balanced with fresh acid. One to watch as it comes from 15 year old vines. This bottling will continue to show more and more with each vintage. Beautiful. — 20 days ago
