Calanco Umbria Sangiovese 2013

Complexity is there but tannins are a bit harsh right now. Cabernet /Sangiovese blend from a small family winery in Umbria. Excellent wine worth seeking out, but needs time. 2013 vintage on Sep 16, 2019 — a month ago

Lunato Orviéto Classico Superiore White Blend 2016

Less Trebbiano here. This. Was. Awesome. More rounded. Less citrus and more melon and mellowed lemon. This went well with lemon baked fish. Rounded edges. Great herbal middle. Finished with great fruit. On to Limoncello! — 2 years ago

Rosso Di Spicca Rosso Orvietano Sangiovese Canaiolo Blend 2016

Compared to an Oreno consumed the night before, this one was missing a bit more. It was better with food than on its own. The wine poured with a slight violet color. Nose and front palate of sweeter, slightly black fruits with a hint of fig. Medium + density. Gains a hint of plum with a grit and a tannic finish that is subtle but noticeable. I am not sure this is made to do anything but drink now. — a year ago

Il Raggio Umbria White Blend 2013

And it continues! IL RAGGIO!!! Honey, apricot, and crème Brulee dominate the palate. And a little bit of walnut. And at only 13%?!? Fortified mouthfeel. Nice. Body and sweetness both in check! Fantastic. — 2 years ago

Berganorio Orvieto Classico Trebbiano 2016

Wow, what a treat. Bro-in-law went to Italy and stopped here. Had a case shipped back. Wow this wine! Everything here is green! Pours a light pale yellow. Nose of herb amd lime, with a granny smith apple. Entry is grassy, apple, lime, pear, rosemary! Finishes with an acidic tart character that makes you want to keep drinking. This bottle disappeared in 10 minutes. — 2 years ago
