Paolo Valle

Les Crêtes

Vin de la Sabla Vino Rosso Red Blend

I might argue that this is the best supermarket wine sold in northern Italy. Rustic and fresh and versatile. — 4 days ago

Luca Wines

Uco Valley Old Vine Malbec 2015

Deep Ruby with purple edges, aromas of red and black fruit with floral spice notes. On the palate rich ripe blackberry and plum with pepper spice and oak notes. Good balance, big ripe tannins, long finish ending with spicy zest. Better an hour after opening. — 15 days ago

Lo Triolet Valle d'Aoste Pinot Gris 2017

Really nice flavor, and really nice Pinot Gris, which I don’t drink very often. Just lacking a little zest that I get from other white varietals. — 7 days ago

Familia Zuccardi

Finca Piedra Infinata Paraje Altamira Malbec Blend 2015

Intense Malbec. Rich deep dark cherry drenched in french oak, spicy with slight green undertones. Grippy on the finish. Had expected more however as it lacked an evolving complexity and I missed the minerality of the infinitive rock... — 2 days ago

Valle de Uco Malbec

Very fruit forward, youbg malbec, with a floral nose and a lot of body... yet not too heavy and not excessively plump. Long finish, a bit simple but well executed. — 4 days ago

Viña Cobos

Bramare Rebon Estate Malbec 2017

In direct battle against de Pago (Otazu) on day 1 we thought more refinement in the Pago. The acids (lime zest) in the Bramare are very present on day 1.
Now on day 2 the air did its thing and it drinks beautifully! It remains fresh in style though.
It needs a decant of a few hours.

@S.R.Alexander 100% agree. Nothing like it. Cheers!

Rosso de Véo Umbria Rosso Sagrantino 2012

Big dose of VA on the nose. Full body, extracted, ripe fruit and aggressive tannins, with a lactic saltine cracker finish. Missing the expressiveness of some of the other Bea bottles I’ve tried.

I’ve heard there can be substantial bottle variation so will give this another try in a few years and hope the bottle was atypical of the bottling/vintage.
