Tenuta La Novella

Illahe

Project 1899 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Illahe's winemaker Brad Ford is a former English and poetry teacher—tasting his wines it's impossible to ignore the prose in them. Pinot Noir used in the 1899 is delivered to the winery by a team of horses, and it's racked by way of a bicycle pump, in short it's a wine made entirely without electricity. Every aspect of it requires hand labor. In the glass a novella of underbrush and brambly fruit, decaying rose petals and crushed stone. Subtle minerality ripples through a red-fruited core, and lingers at the close. — 3 years ago

Pietro Nera

La Novella Bianco Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio Nebbiolo

In a very very good restaurant in Livigno crowded mostly with locals there's only one type of white wine to choose. It is simply the best Lombardian white, they believe! — 4 years ago

Pretorius Wine Company

Santa Barbara County Tempranillo

Grenache and Tempranillo from an up and coming winemaker. Novella Nelson. Ex of Sea smoke. This is her own moderately priced project , and is terrific. Very much Pinot noir in style. Pretorious is the name of the bottling. — 5 years ago
