Keeps getting more interesting with each sip. Fresh apples for days with some floral character on the nose. Absolutely delicious. — 3 days ago

Luminous red. Aromas of flinty red berries, fresh herbs and broom on the enticing nose. Then richer and riper than the Pirrera, with a smoother, deeper personality and a more balanced approach to its fleshy and structured red fruit and herbal flavors. Finishes long and crisp.

Terre Siciliane Zibibbo 2017

2017. Nice balance between full mouthfeel and crisp minerality. Wonderful for the price. I liked it a little more on its own than with the tomatoes and mozzarella. — 7 days ago

CiFRA Costa Toscana Cabernet Franc 2017

Good job again Italy! Like the last Cab F I tried from Italy this one is a dancer. A dancer with strong gams and suede slippers. But doing a bright, light cherry jam jig. Or some Italian dance. Tarantella? — 2 days ago

Ripasso Superiore Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2015

In the mouth, it is dry, with structure. It has a rich taste of red fruits and elegant spices. @Ted @Janell — 10 days ago

I had an Italian wine as well last night @Dom Malerba. Great minds think alike

Antonio Vallana & F.S.A.S.

Vallana Campi Raudi Red Blend 2010

Nicely structured. Decant this for about 60 to 90min and the secondary flavors will come out. Beautiful tar and mineral flavors. — 10 hours ago

Azienda Agricola Spagnoli Andrea

Pan Vino Bianco 2017

This is one of the first vintages for this young and very interesting (she) winemaker. Vermentino is blended with autochtonous albarola and trebbiano. Aromatic and well balanced, with strong minerality. It is a pleasure to return to the bottle even 2-3 days after. I am sure we will hear a lot of her. — 5 days ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Sammarco Toscana SuperTuscan Blend 2013

If @Cathy Corison made cab blends in Tuscany, they would be this great. Complex, begging for some age to strut. Gorgeous aromatics after an hour decant, followed by layers of dark and light red berry, asian spice, bridle leather and a hint of mint. Built to last (but no oak or vanilla to speak of), just silky tannins front to back. Outstanding. 20 years to go. — 6 days ago

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) — 10 days ago
