Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

My buddy Al can never turn down a Brunello from a quality producer. This was great, as usual. Come to think of it, I’m not sure I’ve ever turned down a quality brunello. Thank goodness. — 7 months ago

Orviéto Classico White Blend 2016

Great example of Orvieto Classico. More complexity than others I've had, lemon-tinged peach with white flower accents. The acidity could be a bit juicier but there's definitely enough to give definition to the fruit. — 6 months ago


Orviéto Classico Dry White Blend 2017

Forgot just how nice Orvieto is. First had this in the town of Orvieto quite a few years back. Fruity like a Alsatian Riesling yet more acidic and less sweet. Just lovely. This one a great value. — 7 months ago

Berganorio Orvieto Classico Trebbiano 2017

Had the 2016, and this 17 is probably a bit better. So so good. First, it's really not as acidic as I would like. Both a good and bad thing. When enjoying lighter fare without a lot of sauce or spice, this Berganorio is a perfect match. Comprised of 30% Procanico, 30% Grechetto, 20% Malvasia, 15% Verdelho, and 5% Drupeggio, this wine is mildly acidic up front, but balanced by lighter lemon, lime and grapefruit that morphs into a wine that is more weighted and mature than expected through the middle and finish. Although the notes are always on the lighter, more tropical side, the wine doesn't ever take a thin or uninspiring side. Although I will definitely say that I don't think this one is really intended to age. Well done Velette! — 4 months ago
