Poggio alla Pietra Brunello di Sonoma Sangiovese 2007

A little spritzy; blows off quickly. Not much nose. Mellow dark smoothly integrated fruit, cocoa and a touch of herbs. Excellent paired with truffled cheese! — 8 days ago

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Guardiola Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese 2016

This is a food wine. A perfect food/wine match with any rustic Italian dish. Do you like Alla Puttanesca? Then here's your wine. (The wine can easily be found for $20. That $45 Buy suggestion...silly.) — 2 months ago


Gabutti Barbera d'Alba 2013

Every time I’ve walked into the cellar, this bottle has been starring at me and since I was making pasta alla puttanesca, I figured it was as good a time as any. Definitely on the high end for Barbera d’Alba but I’ll be damned if it ain’t worth every penny. Decanted for about an hour prior to dinner. This was extraordinary on the nose. Dark fruit dominated with baking spice, in particular, there was a significant aroma of nutmeg. The other obvious bit on the nose was, and you’ll have to bear with me here, engine shop floor. Like, the smell of walking into an old mechanic’s garage. As weird as that sounds, it was awesome. On the palate it’s big with dark fruit and spices. Tangy finish. Firm but fair tannin. Balanced. So delicious on its own or with food. Drink now with an hour decant or hold. This will be really good for years to come.

Jason really liked. I tried and didn’t like but it was after I had tasted Paradiso. Andrea and Jason sweat I’d like it ;) — 19 hours ago

Vie di Romans

Vieris Sauvignon Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Alla klassiska Sauvignon-drag finns med. Grape, krusbär, citronzest, gräs. Det som gör vinet är alla spektakulära texturer. Rivig, syrlig och ändå lite rund och vaxig. Ger mkt fräschör utan att bli lättsamt. — a month ago

Domaine Piron-Lameloise

Quartz Chénas Gamay 2015

En solid grund av skogens alla bär, allt från smultron till blåbär. På det en oljighet och blombladskänsla. Nästa lager bjuder på träiga toner och ganska mycket viol/anis/fänkålsfrö. Gott är det, speciellt kallt. — 2 months ago
