Let’s make more native yeast Riesling! It’s top two, three of the worlds great grapes and I feel like we’ve barely tapped into what it can do. Many of our favorite Riesling makers have been stubborn, sticking with pre-selected strands from the same mother.
Oddero Riesling is very good, but it tastes not unlike Alsace or Mosel or Rhône. Shy aromas with smokey flint and lemon. I don’t have much to add because I couldn’t find much more. Big textures and familiar territory. — 4 days ago
Notes of peach, cedar, and honeysuckle. Drank with a meal (chicken) but could easily drink without. Some structure. Not very in your face.

Having found the Freisa from Bartolo Mascarello in a wine shop has been a bit of a shock, but I recovered quickly as soon as I opened it.
It starts with that little fizz, but once it opens up it gets broad, complex, deep and still nonetheless fresh.

Not a bad at all entry level nebbiolo langhe. Good quality for price for sure. Characteristic dark red fruit aromas, good earth, some muddling of tannins at this young age, but nice acid on the finish. — 2 days ago
Very nice but too young - needs at least 2-3 more years in my view. Perfect nebbiolo soft red in the glass, smells a bit like a nice soft stinky french cheese with some dark cherry poking through. Medium body, and smooth with good acid, but the tannins are a bit too present for me. — 10 days ago
