Illahe

Estate Willamette Valley Grüner Veltliner 2014

First non-Austrian Grüner! Pretty impressed. This is a good case for the Willamette's suitability for this variety. As you'd expect a bit riper and weightier than a lot of Austrian examples, but definitely showing varietal typicity. Nose of ripe green apple, ripe honeydew melon, and grapefruit, wet stone minerality (that actually kinda reminds me of the granite beaches of the Finnish gulf coast and archipelago), celery, sugar snap peas, slight fennel seed note, and some leesy hard cheese rind action going on too. The palate echoes the nose pretty congruently, sitting on a taught frame of intense acidity. Medium (-) body with leesy, oily texture. I might be slightly biased since this wine kinda makes me nostalgic for Finland but it's pretty damn good. Would like to revisit in a few more years. — 3 years ago

Il Colle (Carli)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

Exquisite Brunello di Montalcino. Artisan organic winery. My first Brunello ever was 2004 vintage in Firenze on my birthday five years ago. Great notes of earth and ripe cherry. Tipica comes clearly on the nose.
Full body, medium plus acidity and dusty tannins.
Absolutely gorgeuous! Happy 100th birthday Finland!

Mastroberardino

Riserva Radici Taurasi Aglianico 1998

Not my cup of tea, but this is something else when it comes to affordable mature wines or Aglianico one can buy from Alko in Finland. Medium body, medium+ acidity, finishing with dry note. — 3 years ago
