Dragonte Bierzo Mencía

Color of dark purple, a bit bubbly with beautiful legs. Nose of cherry jam, spice, currants, strawberry jam, and ripe grapes. Nose is full of dark fruits. Taste is basically dry with some prune flavor indeed. Second sip shows some more notes from the nose with addition of some zest and oaky note. Low tannins and a bit peppery. Aftertaste shows some more fermented prune, grapefruit, and bittersweet note. Above average. — 7 days ago

Caretaker Wines

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Color of purple, quite clear and nice legs. Nose of cocoa, leather, cherry jam, a bit sour grapefruit, with a touch of oak tone. Taste of strawberry syrup, and some seaweed indeed, grassy and minty, soft tannins and slightly sweet. Second sip shows some more ripe grape, black tea, and a bit peppery note. Aftertaste is medium long with smooth sweetness. Quite clean. On par. — 23 days ago

Miluna

Primitivo Di Manduria 2019

9.4

It's aromatic, smooth, slightly dry yet satisfying. Indeed a good Malbec comparatively, probably one of the best I've had. Definitely value for money to get it outside of this teeny tiny island. This wine reminds me of how an occasion should be celebrated. I wish I could have finished the last glass, unfortunately it was in high demand and it was robbed from me from a greedy Malbec drinker. — 20 days ago

Château de Pressac

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

2009 vintage. Merlot 72%, Cabernet Franc 14%, Cabernet Sauvignon 12%, Carmenère 2%, Malbec 1%. Apparently the only estate in Bordeaux that uses the 5 grape varieties. Deep colour. Still very young. Very good indeed. — 2 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

Alamos Uco Valley Malbec 2020

Color of bubbly dark purple, yet quite clear. Nose of milky chocolate, fermented prune, strawberry syrup, a bit fermented cabbage, and a bit gin powder indeed. Taste follows the nose with addition of good quality acidity, dark fruits, ripe grapes, some zest, and low on tannins. Aftertaste shows some more bittersweet note and more ripe grapes. On par. — 15 days ago

Fattoria dei Barbi (Colombini)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

From the get-go, the 2016 Brunello from Fattoria dei Barbi is an attractive, forthcoming wine showing all the hallmarks of a great vintage, which of course 2016 was - in Montalcino as in Tuscany, Italy, Europe, indeed the world so it seems. It is oaked in a barrel

Quite pale garnet in colour, the wine has pretty aromas of rose petal, dry cherry, cranberry, with some lavender, dark chocolate, and coffee bean.

The palate is firm, juicy, with a well of macerated cherry and kirsch liqueur to go with savoury characteristics of aged meat and herbs. Acidity is high, but this is enjoyable now with a good decant - it will of course age very well too.

La Palazzetta (Flavio Fanti)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Color of burgundy, light and clear. Nose of ripe grapes, aldehyde, spice, cinnamon, mint, and indeed quite light. Taste follows the nose with addition of some sweetness, zest, very mellow tannins, a bit tea, and a tiny bit peppery. Aftertaste is medium short. Overall, clean, light and enough flavors. On par. — 12 days ago

Fletcher

C15 Chardonnay 2020

It definitely says C20 on the label, i am not sure if it refers to the vintage and it changes every time
However it is very good
It reminds me a lot of an Aussie Chardy, but that i guess it shouldn't be a surprise since Fletcher is indeed from downunder
The wine is rare because there is very little Chardonnay in Langhe and also too because production is very small
I like it a lot, but am i fully convinced yet?
Perhaps not, but i would drink more of it for sure
BTW the wine is in a great balance with crispness and creaminess, it feels like it didn't finish the malo perhaps

@Ceccherini Cristiano Hello Cec. On a visit to Alba several years ago we discovered an excellent Langhe Chardonnay made by Pio Cesare called Piodeli. Peter Scudamore-Smith MW raved about it comparing to a top quality Chablis. I split a dozen with him. I have a couple left.

@Bob McDonald Hi Bob, thanks for the tip, let me say though that being in Italy it is rare to me to be looking for Chardonnay because of the variety of grapes there is here. However they happen to pop up like the Fletcher one did , i met an old friend that has become their rep and handed a bottle to me. To be honest i don't recall seeing the Pio Cesare Chardonnay much around, but i will be pleased to grab a bottle when the opportunity comes and let you know my impressions. Cheers 🍷take care my friend🙏
