Castel Torre

Bodegas Muga

Torre Muga Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2014

Before ‘14, last vintage was ‘11, no ‘12 or ‘13. Deep Ruby a blend 70% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano & 10% Mazuelo, aged new French oak for 15 months (‘11 was 24 mos). Ripe red fruit aromas with floral, oak & pepper spice. On palate ripe red fruit flavors, complex with layers of fruit & spice, noting espresso, cacao & licorice. Fine tannins, well balanced, long finish ending with fruit, spice and oak. Decant or let sit in the cellar for a while. Nice! Tried several ‘14’s. — 10 days ago

La Torre Bianco Umbria Trebbiano Blend 2018

Diluted yellow highlighter color; farmy farmy farmy farmy goodness on the nose with a hint of petrol and bleu cheese. Silly but high acid, creamy. Spring freshly cut grass, a bit of salted butter and the teeniest hint of honeysuckle. — 14 days ago

Castel Vieilh la Salle

Red Bordeaux Blend

Blend of the 2010/11 vintage from what I can tell. Pleasant, not complex. Rustic. — 15 days ago


Puer Apuliae Castel del Monte Nero di Troia 2003

A very acidic, intense red wine that is perfect for steak. Powerful tannins in the finish are now smooth yet bitter. The nose is intense dark red fruit. Strong leather to start, and tannic to finish. An excellent wine. — 9 days ago

Castel Ruggero

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

Actually 100% Sangiovese. Intense and bright aromas of cherries, plums and violets. Bright cherry fruit flavor with notes of leather and clove. Rich supple tannins and nicely balanced acidity. Bright and fresh tasting. Thank you Chris B! — a month ago

Riserva Vigna Pedale Castel del Monte Nero di Troia 2015

Pretty solid rustic Nero di Troia. Probably the best of my 4-5 samples of this grape. 3 bicchieri is a stretch but it’s not like the Gambero Rosso guys don’t make worse calls. — 24 days ago

Palazzo della Torre Veronese Corvina Blend 2016

A bit syrupy but not too heavy for a veronese. I get blackberry and boysenberry. I would drink again :) — 3 days ago
