Amaro Montenegro

Distilleria Varnelli

Amaro dell'Erborista

So complex. Rooty, earthy, bitter herbs. A touch of honeyed sweetness to offset a bitter second half of the palate and some chalky tannins. — 12 days ago

Cuvée Spéciale Côtes de Provence Tibouren

2019. 90 Tibouren, 10 Grenache. Quite punchy at first. Grenache really comes through with snappy strawberry fruit leather, date, amaro, cherry liqueur, Maraschino cherries / Luxardo . Pretty, concentrated, rhubarb, dried cranberries. Sexy stuff — 24 days ago

Chioso Dei Pomi Ghemme Nebbiolo 2012

These wines are so beautiful. Gorgeous array of earthy/tar goodness that weave nicely with surprisingly deep and rich fruit, firm mineral backbone, and beautiful floral tones. The tannins appear to be softening, giving the sense that these once rigid tannins are coming around nicely. Deep black cherry and black plum, fresh tar, crushed flower petals, amaro spices, crushed rock, a sense of hung or cured meat, leather. — a month ago

Cynogorski Vranac 2015


I have no idea what I am drinking but it isn’t that bad. Dark like a Cabernet with a bit of licorice and blackberries. Fun buy from a local Italian grocery store — 2 months ago

Domaine Lucien Lardy

Les Thorins Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2015

Almost amaro-like aromatics - gentian, Chinese 5 spice. Just peeking at maturity. Like Meletti. Which I love. But borderline overwhelming. Fascinating gamay. — a month ago

Giacomo Fenocchio

Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Pale ruby with orange rim. Aromatic, Tart and ripe red fruit: sour cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, some blackberry, def VA, lifted fruit and floral note: Roses, violets. On the palate there is amaro-like bitter smell, tar with notes of gravel and wet stone. Some oxidation-dried out quality. No new oak, but definitely some old, large botti or something similar. Grippy tannins. Long finish. A thing of beauty. — 2 months ago
