I seem to have run out of bad wine? Or maybe just too generous

@Josh Morgenthau grade inflation. Happens to the best of us.

@Lyle Fass even those who sell the wine they’re grading? How scandalous! ; )


Faro Nerello Blend 2016

Light in texture and alcohol but savory, herbal, full of dried flowers, blacktop and bright cherries (almost like a Barbaresco). Interested in trying more Norellos... — 2 months ago

Salina Bianco Secco Malvasia 2019

A repeat purchase — this wine is an exceptional value, offering a ton of complexity for under $20. I had to research a bit to find that Malvasia is the grape, and Salina is the tiny Italian Island off Sicily it comes from. This wine tastes like salty ocean and makes you imagine being there. A favorite. (Purchased and repurchased many times at Amaro Spirits & Wine in Park Slope, Brooklyn.) — 13 days ago

Occhio di Terra Malvasia 2017

Malvasia Bianco. Pre-phylloxera vineyards in old crater in Lipari. Pumice, ash and sand soil. Great example of a volcanic wine and minerality. Complex yet quaffable, aromatic herbs, slight honey and smoky notes. Very intriguing wine! — 4 months ago
