Monte dei Roari

Sortie Veneto Cortese Blend

A sparkling Iranian white that is rather on the dry fruity (stone fruits dominate) with a decent acidity... could hold its own against some of the sour beers fashionable these days — 2 days ago

Rabajà Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2016 Barbaresco Rabajà is fresh, vibrant and pulsing with energy, all signatures of this important Barbaresco vintage. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, smoke, dried herbs and menthol are all wonderfully alive in the glass. This is such an expressive and vivid wine. Layers of aromatic and flavor intensity really come alive with aeration. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2019) — 6 days ago

Barbera d'Alba 2018

Nice, very herbal nose w mineral. Taste is a little citrus - among the red fruit. Not as bold fruit as expegeded - but the more structure. — 20 days ago
