Macchia dei Goti Taurasi Aglianico 2016

Made from Aglianico grape from Taurasi region, medium Ruby with aromas of ripe red fruits, floral and pepper spice. On the palate flavors of blueberry and plum, herbs, licorice and black pepper notes. Full ripe tannins, lively acidity, long elegant finish ending with fruit and spice. — a day ago

Parcelica Grande "La Francesita" Monastrell Blend

2018 opened December 2021. The 15% Merlot mellows out the edginess of the 70% Monastrell (Mourvèdre) and the 15% Garnacha (Grenache) grapes. Even though all these grapes are also grown in France, this wine has a distinctive Spanish twist to it. It has the body of a Rioja, without the tightly wound tannins that are common to Spanish reds. Mint, lavender, and cherries on the nose. Cherries and cassis on the front. Medium tannic structure, with a refreshing coolness on the mid palate. It finishes with a bouquet of high notes — flint, smoke, and sour cherry. Long finish with a slightly discordant sourness at the end. If it didn’t zing me at the end I would’ve given it a 9.2. — a month ago

Selezione Antonio Castagnedi Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2011

An Amarone I can get behind. Not as massive as many. Despite its 11 years, the nose shows beautiful fruit, rich but not too pruney. Secondary notes of mahogany and leather. In the mouth, it’s got loads of port-like flavor in a full but not blowsey way. Ends long and dry. Still got some tannin, but it’s soft and well integrated. Nice job. — 12 days ago

Dissonance Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2020

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2020 Dissonance is gorgeous in the way it marries textural richness and energy. A dollop of Sémillon added to the Sauvignon Blanc works so well in adding mid-palate creaminess, orchard fruit, spice and jasmine. The 2020 is beautifully done, and a real delight to taste today. $20.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2022) — 7 days ago

San Antonio Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Decanted for 20-30 minutes before drinking. Significantly smoothed out the tannins and made for a very pleasurable drink. Served with bone-in rib eye recipe from Wine Spectator. Oh so good. — a month ago

Racina

N'Uovo

31st of 204 1l bottles.
They are extremely hands off with the wines
They say whatever the wines is like is not their fault😄😄
The wine is lovely, a little carbonic sticks with the mass for now, an unusual crown cork that makes the bottle even more rustic.
You can't tell the grapes neither the vintage from the label
Being in the South of Calabria you would aspect a tough and big wine to digest, but nothing could be farther from the truth
On the other hand when drinking you realise why the bottle is a litre rather than the conventional 3/4 of it
Crunchy red fruit, spices, smooth tannin and that mineral note that distinguish it. Long too
Such a good find, i was recommended by the owner of the Enoteca Les Vignerons in Trastevere, Rome who is a great expert on natural wines and this bottle gives him extra points in that direction.
Cheers Antonio🍷

@Ceccherini Cristiano unfortunately I didn’t see this in time to say hello to Fundim. They still have some interesting stuff but obviously no more Rousseau and Coche…

@Ceccherini Cristiano we ended up with Miani Friulano Buri 2016 for 100 euros. A good price but I was disappointed with the wine. I’ve always preferred his base Friulano with much less oak. Then again, I’ve only had the crus when they were young.

@Chris MacLean it was fun to be sommelier at the Antico Arco, I truly enjoyed it; it gave me the opportunity to express my taste ranging from big acclaimed names to tiny denomination forgotten by most.🙏🥰.
With Miani by memory i recall the Tocai Buri, when a few years a old, very Chablis like with a distinctive oyster mineral, yes you could tell the oak was there, but not disturbing rather supporting, but as we said perhaps the ageing helps.
However i hope you enjoyed the whole experience and again thanks for thinking of me, it means something. 🙏
Take care and i hope one day we might end up crossing our paths in real life mate.🤷‍♂️😄
