Don Carlino Abruzzo Pecorino 2022

Expressive, floral, punchy!
What a nose!! Starts with some nice reduction but when it blows off, this just is amazing. Switching from floral and exotic aromas of fleur d’orange, candied citrus, candied ginger and ripe cantaloupe to salty, naked stones. And back. Amazing purity & freshness. So enticing!!
On the palate this is a thin layer of exotic citrus fruit on stony minerality. Juicy acidity, salty freshness, mineral depth. Such precision here. And depth.
What a discovery! This is brilliant stuff!!

Marimar Estate (Marimar Torres)

Don Miguel Vineyard La Masia Chardonnay 2018

La masía translates as "the farmhouse," which Marimar Estate was designed to resemble. Medium Ruby with aromas of red fruits, dried herbs and earthy spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and raspberry with toasty notes and herb cinnamon spice. Full-bodied, fine soft textured tannins, long finish ending with juicy fruit and spicy herb character. Nice! — 4 months ago

Concha y Toro

Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Medium ruby hue. Aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, licorice, and vanilla. Plus body, plus acid, plus tannins. Exquisitely smooth and integrated on the palate, with soft, grainy tannins. Even a hint of banana on the palate. Long finish. Drinking well now but well worth cellaring. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot. — 2 days ago
