From the federal wine Xmas crate. Drank after a long day with chicken Caesar and it totally hit the spot. I taste the apple/pear at the margin. — 3 days ago
Elegant Cab Franc! Tasted it blind and struggled to pick up on the green peeper notes that typically are a dead away for the varietal. — 12 days ago
Delicious surprise! I truly was expecting a decent but drinkable blend at this price point and lack of marketing. But, wow! This is a very good red blend that has a truly distinctive style and taste that would pair with just about any hardy red meat or grilled salmon or pork. Truly versatile and drinkable now. I wouldn’t hold it much longer although not certain of the vintage since it’s not shown on the bottle. — a month ago
Smooth and delicious. Warm aftertaste, slightly dry mouth feeling after. Oak and dark fruits.
Goes very well with red meats! — 20 days ago
Salem Wine Imports. Nice well-rounded Tuscan for before and during dinner. — 18 days ago
Leads with a distinct oak note, almost like a touch of scotch, and then bursts with berry fruit flavor. The juxtaposition is a bit odd, but it works for me. The bridge is a hint of vanilla. Actually, I love it! — 5 days ago
Toscana wine evening #6
Bright cherry, herbs, uplifting aromatic whiff, enticing. Medium body yet with good depth & purity of fruit. Still young & a bit reductive yet with Promise of more to come. Beautiful tannin management. Great drinkability.
This is really, really good stuff. — 6 days ago
Volcanic rocks and tiny berries, red fruits, rhubarb, a touch of caramel candy. Creamy mouthfeel, cutting acid and subtle tannins. And a finish that goes on for minutes. Sometimes a wine speaks so much to place, it’s hard to describe, but drinking this brings me back to Etna in a way few others can. High altitude (1300m) blend of indigenous Etna grapes blanc de noir. Everything is there for graceful long term aging too. Brilliant wine. Disgorged 2019 — 24 days ago
