Colli Aprutini Pecorino 2016

Delectable Wine
8.9

The 2016 Pecorino is wonderfully fresh but also a bit withdrawn. Gingery spice, ripe yellow apples, hints of candied citrus and an enriching note of almond paste creates an alluring display. This is silky in texture, contrasted by nervous acidity which makes for a juicy experience, as ripe orchard fruits taper off to salty, savory mineral tones. It buzzes with residual tension throughout the finish, along with a hint of hazelnut. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2021)

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2012

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2012 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne is smoky, meaty and packed full of dark fruit intensity. Notes of black currant, wild brush herbs, white pepper and tobacco can be found from start to finish. It’s soft upon entry and almost fragile in feel, with a tactile mix of nervous acidity and grippy young tannins that keep the expression achingly youthful. There are depths of tart woodland berries and savory spices fighting to surface from beneath the 2012’s hulking structure, yet only time will tell if they’ll ever succeed, as today, this is all elbows and knees.

Clos Pepe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Very California. On the riper, dark cherry, plush side of Pinot Noir. Nicely done if you like that style. Would be a great barbecue wine. +1 point for the screw cap — 12 days ago
