Terre Di Montelusa

Barone Pizzini

Animante Franciacorta White Blend

Runner-up for Wine Of The Night but definitely the pleasant surprise of the night. Little funky nose and not particularly effervescent for a sparkler. Acidity is muted and feels like a “real wine” as opposed to those chemically enhanced science experiments that pass for luxury wine life in some quarters. Definitely would serve this to my most discerning guests like @Sam Shepard @Brendan Devine and if I could be so blessed, the GOATs of the wine world like @Ron R @Mike R @Willie Carter, a little something off the beaten path. — 6 days ago

Nice words, @Kevin Løk. I’ll certainly seek this out. The truth be known, the likes of @Mike R, @David L, @Joe Lucca and @Bill Bender throw me some big bones. Without those, I’d be wallowing in the bargain-basement 🙂

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso 2016

Terrific!!! Paired with slow cooked chicken on the BBQ. This wine keeps evolving upwards giving me the impression a lot is still to come. Two bottles left, now I need to resist and not touch it for a while to see what it will give on the longer term — 11 days ago

Natty Gatorade is an awesome descriptor 👍

Munjebel Terre Siciliane Bianco 2018

Notes of hay and yellow fruit pastry and tempura surprisingly open up over a surprising lack of pure fruit on the nose at first, though it opened up with some warmth and time. Starts with a palate of fresh cut grass, then evolves with notes of pear and a dry, heavy minerality. A medium body, and a lingering finish of something I can’t quite identify. Comes across almost as a Chenin. Very complex, very different, and very interesting, in a good way though. — 3 days ago

Citra

Estate Grown Terre di Chieti Chardonnay

Not overly sweet but not as dry as most Chardonnay. Very good & pairs well Thanksgiving turkey. — 6 days ago

Vincent et Tania Carême

Terre Brulee Swartland Chenin Blanc 2019

Aromas of pineapple and orange blossoms. Big pineapple flavors with hints of Star fruit, peaches, apricots and bright red apple. Viscous and waxy texture with lots of minerality on the finish. Reasonable balance. Like a fruit salad in a glass. — 20 days ago
