Steira Ovada Red Blend

@Delectable Dolcetto and not red blend. Very powerful and warm for a dolcetto, it shows really well the character of the terroir. It opened up well after a while in the glass with all the fruits coming up with the soft oaky notes. This is a natural wine from organically grown vines. — 14 days ago

La Scolca

Black Label Bianco Secco Gavi Cortese 2017

Gavi comes from a small growing area in northwestern Italy located north of Genoa on the steep slopes of the Ligurian Apennines. Made from the Cortese di Gavi grape, straw yellow with delicate aromas of green and citrus fruits. On the palate apple, grapefruit and tropical fruits, some nutty notes, rich with flavor, nice mouthfeel. Crisp finish, lingering, ending with a flinty mineral character. Enjoy with a nice Bronzino! — 4 days ago

La Trombetta

Gavi 2016

Minerally, citrus, and a hint of salt. Very good for what it is, but personal preference leads me to reds. — 14 days ago

Vigne Regali (Banfi)

Rosa Regale Sparkling Brachetto d'Acqui 2006

When cleaning out my wine refrigerator I found a sparkling red wine, a late summer jewel made of 100% Brachetto D’Acqui. Question-is this 2006 Banfi Rosa Regale from the Piedmonts region still enjoyable? Although slightly darker in color with less frizzante, it is full of fruit, strawberries, raspberries and red cassis. Serve ice cold with a soft cheese such as Brie, small Chicken Salad Sandwiches, your favorite hummus of the day and roasted pistachios. And it’s only 7.25% alcohol! — 4 days ago

La Scolca

Bianco Secco Cortese 2017

Gavi comes from a small growing area in northwestern Italy located north of Genoa on the steep slopes of the Ligurian Apennines. White label is La Scolca’s everyday wine, an alternative to their “Black Label”. Made from the Cortese di Gavi grape (younger vines), straw yellow with delicate aromas of stone and citrus fruits. On the palate apple, extended lees aging gives rich apple and lemon flavors, some nutty notes, good mouthfeel. Crisp medium finish, vivid acidity ending with a mineral character. Enjoy with a nice Red Snapper! — 4 days ago

Tenimenti Ricci

Elso Colli Tortonesi Timorasso

Med-gold in the glass...rich nose of hay and lychee... rich, unctuous, almost viscus. Smooth, silk on the tongue... still some acid to balance the rich fruit. A fun white. — 2 days ago
