Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Surprise...I’m a wine that still kicks ass. But I fall apart in about 2 hours. Spice and leather, dark cherry. Ummm — 10 months ago

Ca'della Scala

Mezzopiano Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Corvina Blend 2014

Wine #2 In Italy. We are in Venice and this is the second Valpo Ripasso (last night I didn't have a workable phone). Light to Medium bodied. Aromatic. These wines have both paired really nicely with branzino. Still jet-lagged, with be here for 16 days. Challenging with kids; thus wine will be a necessity.

I'm open to suggestions
@Bill Bender @Shay Aldriedge and others. We will hit Tuscany and considering a swing up to Barolo at al.

@Ron R I loved driving in Italy. Just took a couple days to adjust and think like an Italian.

If your in Florence, try this place - absolutely great food and service. Contemporary and the kids will love it, especially the desserts:

In Chianti, I would seek out Fontodi. As I recall, no reservation required. However, it will be like a funeral for the kids. It's about 90 mins drive from Florence.

Ricossa Antica Casa

Antica Casa Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Vino “importante” per antonomasia, frutto del vitigno Nebbiolo, coltivato negli 11 comuni storici piemontesi. Rosso con riflessi granata, al naso etereo, in bocca secco, asciutto, austero, armonico m e persistente. Affinato per 3 anni di cui almeno 2 almeno in botti di legno. Di grande struttura, questa domenica accompagna delle pappardelle altrettanto importanti.

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Brick Pink Wine of the Sun & Earth Vin Gris Tuilé Central Coast Rosé Grenache Blend 2013

Clear, Deep Gold, long slow tears.
Clean oxidized nose with brine, celery and tumeric, caramel.

Dry on the pallet, med acidity, medium body 13% ABV, dry cider apples, celery, clay, wet ground, earthy clay pottery.
Quicker finish.

I would of guessed either, Sherry or Kvevri , in a blind tasting. Production was 9 months al fresco in glass demiohn (Banyuls!)

55% Grenache, 23% Mourvedre, 10% Roussanne, 7% Cinsaut, 3% Carignan, 2% Grenache Blanc.

I love Mourvedre.
“This blend features a good portion of Mourvèdre; that variety seems to work best for this style”. I vote for 100% Mourvedre, small batched, three shades of Banyuls (white, rose, red).

Geeked. Exciting wine.
Could easily pair with the flavors of India, Spain, and Middle East.

Disgorged 13/04/2015. Of the bottles of this wine that I have had, this one came across a bit brut-al... a little hard-edged and angular, severe on the finish. Things had opened and softened by say 2... — 2 years ago
