Ottella

Lugana Trebbiano

Likely verdicchio instead of Trebbiano as mentioned in Godforsaken grapes. Bright, mineral, strawberries. “Yet what should become of the world? The industrial countries spreading like a blackness over all the world, horrible, in the end destructive. And the Garda was so lovely under the sky of sunshine, it was intolerable.” — 10 days ago

Very nice oak and flavor. Didn’t experience bad aftertaste either. Got from Bottle Rocket, would repeat buy. — 13 days ago

Conti Sertoli Salis

Capo di Terra Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2011

Refreshing as a variation you are used to a diet of mainly Langhe nebbiolo. Rosehip, rowanberry and cherries in a light burgundian style. — 5 days ago

Bellavista

Alma Cuvée Brut Franciacorta Chardonnay Blend

This is very nice. Polished, fresh and lifted lemon notes. Almost minty and fine acidity. — 3 days ago

Renato Motalli

Valgella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2010

For such a light-colored 9-year old wine, this is still pretty youthful. Nose is beautiful. Moist earth, cracked mountain rocks, delicate, pure cherry, sweet spice, flowers. Lean but mouthfilling, with the fruit turning savory and minerally quickly after entry. Perfection with a delicate braised chicken dish. — 23 days ago

Boffarola

Boffarola Valtellina Superiore Pietrisco

Some fresh flowers notes, a point of acid and some fresh red fruits in the background, like strawberries or mud berries. Since they changed the production, this wine tastes more modern, easier to drink in veggie dishes, and fresh cheese — 25 days ago

Caposaldo

Moscato

Sweet for after dinner nibbles and sips. — 4 days ago
