Ü Pastine Portofino Bianchetta Genovese 2020

Tasted with marvelous branzino with fresh herb and tomato “spring caponata,” this wine was an ideal embodiment in a glass of the “macchia,” the Italian version of the Rhône’s “garrigue.” Bright pear, apple, lemon and yellow plum with an underlying steely minerality and wonderful sensations of hay and salt air-tinged brush. Surprisingly juicy but also lean, it’s an ideal wine for fish — a month ago

Cavagino Colli di Luni Vermentino

The 2018 Colli di Luni Vermentino Cavagino from Cantine Lunae Bosoni appears golden yellow. A more complex Vermentino, compared to the Etichetta Nera and Etichetta Grigio from this producer. The wine is rich, with tropical fruits, ripe pear, melon, some honey and minerality towards the end. — 22 days ago

Vigneto Isasco Riviera Ligure di Ponente Rossese 2020

Without food, this is an easy-drinking light wine with some muted red fruit and a sort of dusty, reduced earth/mineral note and not much of a mid palate—pleasant but not memorable. Served alongside garlic/anchovy/tuna/caper pasta, this wine is invigorated and gains new dimensions: bright red pomegranate, cherry and rose hip with a hint of sweet ocean air and Mediterranean herbs (thyme?), maybe even some cinnamon. — a month ago
