Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

Luminous red. Inviting aromas of ripe red cherry, raspberry nectar, cinnamon, and minerals. Fresh and juicy, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the mineral and sweet, spicy red berry flavors. Finishes long and fragrant. Perhaps not as concentrated as some past Frappatos from this estate, but a lovely wine nonetheless. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, August 2019) — 14 days ago

Il Macchione

Rosso di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2008

여름의 끝자락이자 가을의 초입이 느껴지는 밤에 마시는 산지오베제 100%의 이탈리안 와인. 11년의 숙성을 거치면서 색은 옅은 벽돌색을 띄게 되었고 미디엄 바디감을 보여준다. 1달반 정도 후에 마실 수 있었다면 계절과도 더할나위 없이 잘 어울렸을것 같다. 가죽과 오크통, 나무와 가을 나뭇잎 향을 부드럽게 갖추고 있고 흔들었을 때 향의 끝에서는 하얀꽃의 느낌도 받을 수 있다. 색깔처럼 부드럽고 무겁지 않게 넘어가기에 차분하게 흔들의자에서 이 와인을 따놓고 가을바람과 즐길 수 있다면 세상 부럽지 않을 듯. — 7 days ago

Had at Macellaria in town. B and I both remarked how tasty. Dry but smooth, not fruity. — 11 days ago

Castello di Amorosa

Il Brigante Red Blend 2006

A simply wonderful cab aroma. Delicious to inhale. Long dark fruit and great balance. Wine seems under rated to me. Maybe I just got a great bottle at winery. — 12 days ago

@Plate & Bottle Summer Dinner.

Main Course, Beef Skirt Steak, Roasted Tomato, Artichoke, Potato Mousseline. Steak has mash potato, roasted tomato relish, lemony artichoke purée with a smokey component.

Hedy is an amazingly, creative Chef.

Superb food & the wine pairing doesn’t suck as a friend of mine is famous for saying.

Il Nido Sauvignon Blanc

Funky! Natural wine taste, some brett but good brett, lots of funk like Chinese fried dough. Good stuff, NOT AT ALL a classic sauv blanc! — 12 days ago

Il Mattaglio Dosaggio Zero

Degoured May 2017. Excellent zero dosage crisp and clear, with lemon undertones and a smooth finish. Would love to remember where we purchased this from so we can get more! — 8 days ago

Il Marroneto

Madonna delle Grazie Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

Among the best Brunello I’ve tasted (and the setting in Tuscany didn’t hurt!) Old saddle leather soaked in red cherry compote and left in the dusty sun to dry. Fantastic. Old skool BdM. — 19 days ago

il Negrese

Gutturnio Superiore

Frizzante! Lightly effervescent, on the sweet side. Crazy juicy and crushable, like martinelli's. Black cherry, red currant jam, toasted almond. — 9 days ago
