Padua, Veneto

Fantinel

Extra Dry Prosecco

This wine makes pretty bubbles which don’t last too long, so enjoy them while they are here. The very pale sparkler offers a nose which carries floral notes along with citrus and minerals. The palate is very dry and loaded with minerality and lemon-lime fruit flavors. It comes off more like a “serious” sparkling wine than a “fun” Prosecco, but there is plenty there to please both camps. — 7 days ago

Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2015

Powerful full bodied wine. Dark fruits with a hint of leather. Noticeable tannins and good complexity. Nice long finish. Quite liked it, but better value with other Amarones. $45 — 14 days ago

Cantine Riondo

Extra Dry Prosecco

The Riondo Prosecco provides a nice bit of white froth at the top of the glass, along with beautiful aromas of fruit and flowers. The palate is, as promised, bone dry and features minerals, lemons and limes in the flavor profile. It has a wonderful level of acidity so it is completely fresh and refreshing. I had mine with a grilled cheese, swiss. Delicious. — 19 days ago

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore Corvina Blend 2014

Another first. I know, what the hell is wrong with me. Packed full of fruit and light on its feet still. Really kind of dig it. — 2 days ago

Le Ragose

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2008

Classic Amarone, with the bitter cherry flavor that is expected. This wine is aged just the right amount. It still needs to be decanted, as I have found with Amarones, at least 2 hours. One it has breathed, it offers flavors of bitter dark chocolate, followed by bitter cherry. The nose is perfect. And there is still fruit in the long finish. It went well with my goat cheese and mushroom salad smothered in balsamic di Modena, matching the vinegar and mushroom flavors perfectly. — 3 days ago

Methode Champenoise w/proper grapes grown near Lake Garda. This might be past it’s prime, but it was still formidable & delicious: full bodied, quite dry w/delicate strawberry & seashells, oxidized nuttiness… nice heft, body & acidity thru finish. Solid sipper w/sentimentality — 7 days ago
