Terre Siciliane Perricone

Barely breaking the top 20 of grape varieties found in Sicily (also the only place Perricone is found to my knowledge), single variety Perricone isn’t exactly available in abundance, which is a shame because it’s a juicy delight. Tart black cherry is the dominant note. Also black currant, licorice, blueberries, violet with a touch of dried herbs / medicinal / savory quality on the back palate. Medium bodied. Well integrated tannins. Ebullient. Organically farmed. Terrier approved. — 14 days ago

Arianna Occhipinti

Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2017

This is a beautiful wine made from the Frappato grape variety of Vittoria, Sicily (an island just off the "boot" of Italy). 😍 The region has a Meditteranean climate that is sunny, dry, and warm, supporting the ripening process, and is not far from the coast (breezes), situated at the foothills of the Iblei Mountains (elevation), offering opportunities to retain acidity and brightness of fruit character in the grapes. 🇮🇹 ☀️

Winemaker Arianna Occhipinti is known for her biodynamic and organic winemaking practices and for being an all-around amazing and bold leader in the wine industry, first releasing wines under her own label at the age of 22. 🙌

👁 This wine is medium ruby with pale garnet rim variation. 👃 On the nose, this wine offers notes of bright cherry, raspberry, strawberry, grape jam, lavender, violet, black licorice, bay leaf, leather, and nutmeg spiciness. Also delicate Brett notes. Perhaps the spiciness comes from the fact that this wine was aged in large slavonian oak barrels. It actually reminds me of a youthful Sangiovese and I just learned it may even be genetically related.

👄 On the palate it is dry. The fruit character is juicier on the nose and more tart on the palate with medium(+) acidity. The fruit character is concentrated and balanced with the nice acidity and overall structure. It has medium alcohol and medium tannins. It is medium bodied with a medium(+) finish.

I could see this wine being extremely versatile with food pairing - anything from poultry to pasta to a variety of cheeses. It's also delightful on its own. It offers a sense of place.

Occhipinti, Il Frappato, Terre Siciliane IGT, Vintage 2017, ABV 12.5%.

These wines are not made in copious quantities, if you find one, buy it and give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

5本で1万円の赤ワインセットその四、バローロの2016年ものです。通常価格は税別で6980円もするとのこと。普段ならなかなか手が出ません。
色合いは濃いめのガーネット、アタックは柔らかいのですが、アフターはかなりパワフル。柑橘やスパイスが交錯した複雑感も素晴らしい。文句なくすばらしい。

Château de Chaintres

Exmuros Terre de Brézé Saumur Chenin Blanc

Vintage 2019 | I know... infanticide, but I wanted to try this Chenin Blanc because I was curious. It would be no punishment only to smell this wine... so multi-layered: lime, white peach, pear, vague impression of honey, saline, very lovely and broad. The taste has a high acidity and lots of potential. Razorsharp. Very nice wine from old vines, in transition to bio. | Paired with with asparagus, egg and ham, the classic combination. — 13 days ago
