Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.
Not a single person called this Italian. In fact, most called this either Alsatian Riesling (what I thought), Alsatian Pinot Gris it even Bordeaux Blanc. This was a dead ringer for Riesling from Alsace...petrol on the nose, tart white peach and crushed limestone on the palate. Unique. — 13 hours ago
The 2009 Schioppettino from Ronchi di Cialla is simply fabulous. Pretty aromas of dried red berries, smoke, crushed stones and dried florals all come together and soar from the glass. It shows remarkable elegance and refinement, with a beautiful silky texture that frames the the seamless finish. Outstanding now. — 8 days ago
Saturated pink. Floral, some herbal and citrus notes. Interesting wine but closed now. It was more giving as temp came up a bit and it got some air but I would still wait. — 4 days ago
This shit is crazy. It is dark orange almost red. Tannic. This is unique. — 2 days ago
Interesting white. Drinks like a complicated, elegant red but dressed in white. Great with green seafood risotto — 18 days ago
