Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2018

Nose is ridiculous: flowers, white peach, cumquat (sp.?), freshly cracked stone. Rich but savory and minerally in the mouth initially, but then turns fruity on the surprisingly long finish. Really good! — 5 days ago

La Conreria d'Scala Dei

Les Brugueres Priorat Grenache Blanc 2017

Definitely better on the second day, which is odd for a white. Pale in colour. Quite shy initially but opens up to reveal lots of spice and complexity, wrapped around the melon core of garnatxa blanca. Delicious though they are not giving it away at €18. — 5 days ago

Masseria Borgo dei Trulli

Salice Salentino Negroamaro 2018

Waitrose. Deep purple. Aroma of sweet juicy black fruit with hints of amaretto. Taste: bold. Ripe black fruit. Medium acidity balanced by long lasting tannins. A bit too velvety for me but very drinkable and good value. — 18 hours ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Sammarco Toscana SuperTuscan Blend 2014

This was my first experience with this wine and won’t be my last. Exudes everything should want from a great super Tuscan. Ride red fruits lead the palate , medium plus acidity. Dusty woods flavors come out. Longer finish. — 3 days ago

Quite smoothe. This is the kind of wine that makes it so hard to accept grocery store options. Oak with cherry — 2 days ago

Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy

Camp Gros Martinenga Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2004

Can’t judge a book by the cover. The label was in poor shape but the wine inside was fresh and vibrant. Good acidity giving it fine structure and balance throughout. This wine has many years left before it’s over the hill. — 3 days ago

Agricola Punica

Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi Carignane 2007

V07. Big, bad, wine. Unfiltered, and deep purple in color. Fragrant plum nose. Thick, black currant, plum and black licorice fruit. Velvety smooth, dry, mocha and soft black pepper finish. Very good food or personal time wine. — 14 days ago

Bricco Dei Roncotti

Corno del Diavolo Buttafuoco Croatina Blend 2016

"The Devil's horne" is the name of this red wine, due to the high slope of this vineyard in Canneto Pavese (Italy).

Buttafuoco is a blend of 4 different grapes: Croatina, Barbera, Uva rara and Ughetta di Canneto.

Deep color, intense fragrance of prune, red peach and pomegranate.

Full-bodied, power tannins texture, long persistance.

The 15,5 % alcohol is really well balanced, I didn't believe it! (2016 was a very warm summer).
