Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007

Finally had my a-ha moment with this wine (after opening a 16 too early). 07 was just beautiful - kept growing in stature over the 3 hour meal. Drank in Venice to celebrate our anniversary. — 4 days ago

Allegrini

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2019 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is youthfully understated, requiring coaxing to reveal its depths of dried black cherries, mocha and cloves, all lifted by a hint of fresh mint. This impresses with its blend of sweet spices, opulent ripe wild berry fruits and silken textures, all balanced by brisk acidity and a pleasantly bitter tinge of dark chocolate toward the close. This finishes classically dry with dramatic length and potency, leaving a coating of fine-grained tannins that saturates, promising many years of positive evolution. Allegrini knocked this one out of the park. Wow. (Eric Guido, Vinous, February 2024)

Muri-Gries Alto Adige - Südtirol Pinot Grigio 2022

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2022 Pinot Grigio opens with a minty flourish, blending crushed green apples with white smoke and ginger. Candied lime and spice complicate its inner sweetness, while green apple notes add contrast toward the close. The tense, medium-length finish ends with salt and sour green melon. $20.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2024) — a month ago

Le Difese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2021

Oh yes, this one was really good. Cherry, cedar, tobacco . Strong and smooth at the same time. It is suggested to eat with red meat, however I had it with lobster served with garlic butter. Ohhhh, I had a moment of umani, the garlic butter gave a smooth buttery feeling to the wine. SAQ $39 — 18 days ago

Vigna Ronco Al Maso Ghemme Nebbiolo 2017

Some of us, being Nebbiolo supplicants, love Ghemme for its paradoxical meaty, bloody, yet light qualities. This has it in spades, on the edge of cherry cough syrup but never quite there. The woods, especially on the nose. This wine would benefit from a large glass.
It’s a bit of a sneaky, under the radar winery, hopefully for a bit still.
Lots of cherries, loam, dirt, blood, stoniness. Delicious. A ‘17 feels just about right.
