Maggiorina vino rosso 2018

Truncated notes because crazy dinner at my brother’s with 6 dogs and more humans and frantic attempts to remember to properly distance.


Loved this. Funky at first, then tons of earthy plummy fruit. Great with my brother’s homemade lasagna.

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

Valencia D.O. Tempranillo

This is by far the best “cheap” red I’ve found. The price almost scared me away. I mean, a $9 bottle? Couldn’t possible be good. It was recommended at one of my favorite bottle shops so I tried it. It’s a go-to for me now when I don’t want to overthink it. Jammy, full of ripe fruit/berry notes, smooth, always enjoyable. — 19 days ago

Rusin Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo Rosé 2019

Nose is nicer than expected for a Rose. Strawberry, ocean, seashells. Really nice acidity. More strawberry with watermelon and minerals. The salinity works it’s way in really well. This is a daily drinker. — 14 days ago
