Cabernet Franc 2015

Bramble/cedar nose, body tight but with notes of tobacco box, cedar and medium tannins that need time to resolve with pleasant medium finish. — 10 days ago

Montefili Rosso Toscana Sangiovese 2012

2021/4/29-30 with Nanjing saltwater duck, etc. Normally I don’t go for wines with international varieties from places like Chianti (and Panzano no less), but I came across this without knowing what was in it and had been wanting to try something from Montefili. It was pretty good - and the Cabernet Franc (which might be my favorite of the French varieties in Tuscany due to Ampeleia) hit the spot when I wanted something to go with duck. It had the brambly cassis and green tobacco, with some cherry from the Sangiovese. Was best on day 1 - was a little plain on day 2. — 9 months ago


Unlitro Alicante Blend 2017

Wonderful wine. Has very interesting berry and spicy notes. Super light, not a lot of body. If you like something that grabs your tongue, this is not it. This is more of a hold hands while walking in the park wine, not a slap you in the face. Pairs nicely with sweet and savory things, like a nice tomato sauce. Saucy wine for a delectable time. — 3 months ago

Dolomiti Teroldego 2015

2020 spring. Brambly, wild, both dark fruited and bright at the same time. Plenty of juicy acidity. Foradori really knows how to make this style of wine - her Ampeleia Cabernet Francs are in a similar vein, but this is cooler and more leafy, whereas those are slightly rounder — 2 years ago

Tuscany Alicante 2018

Beautiful organic Italian Grenache - dry and light in color but strong on the nose. Notes of strawberry and other red fruits. Medium tannic, earthy and leathery. Cheers to friends going on vacation and trusting me to not burn their place down! — 4 months ago
