Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT Sangiovese

One of the better wines in a 2007 Tuscan tasting held about a week ago. The acidity in this one was a little more prominent than in the rest of the group, which made it stand out a bit and showed its Italian roots. I particularly enjoyed this one with food. The alcohol is in check at 13.5% and the finish is long and clean. I think this one has a little room for improvement, still. — 4 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2004

It paradoxically combines nutty and oily with fresh, mineral and vibrant, and fantastic with paella. — 17 days ago

Tapiz

Alta Collection Mendoza Malbec 2015

Malbec 2015 Tapiz Alta Collection. I love these Argentina malbecs. The color is very opaque. The bouquet is rhubarb jam on toast. The initial palate brings in ripe blackberry, raspberry, and a hint of cherry. It’s almost like a Cab and Pinot Noir blend. The mid palate is colored with minerals and graphite. The finish is minimally dry and leaves absolutely no aftertaste of anything. The canvas is back to empty. Love this wine!!!!!!!!!!!! This will pair well with any meat or cheese. Actually a beet and goat cheese salad followed by prime rib and a sweet potato and asparagus would be FANTASTIC! — 9 hours ago

I disagree with the other lower ratings other than mine of coarse.

Dead ringer for high quality champagne. What a nose. Lemon, lime, bread, yeast, herbal as well. Gorgeous and complex nose. Gorgeous mousse and very mineral palate with tons of energy and tension. Complex, deep and terrific concentration and sap. Very long. Brilliant bottle. — a month ago

Nothing like sparkling wine made from dolcetto ;-)

Reserva Roda II Rioja Tempranillo 2013

Scents of black plum and lavender. Black fruit and spice with a dusty black plum finish. Would have benefitted from more time in the cellar and a decant. Good with bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese. — 5 days ago

Josefina Piñol Terra Alta Vi Dolç Grenache Blanc 2006

Weird. Hits all the expected notes of high acid with floral sweetness and syrupy mouthfeel,but ends with a little bit of bitter tang. Used some in a cocktail and that worked great. — 17 days ago

Meh. Serviceable plus. Forgettable in every sense. Right down to the generic “catena” so-and-so label — 7 days ago
