Endrizzi

Metodo Classico Brut Trento Chardonnay Pinot Nero

Bright light color. The nose is herbs, young white cherry, wild flowers. The mouth is fruity, a green apple adds in, oily. Well-rounded and balanced. Fresh and long after-taste. Superbly balanced great wine. — 12 days ago

Foradori

Dolomiti Teroldego 2016

This wine opens like blueberry juice, it’s light and tart and acidic, with some cocão and grippy fine tannins.  After an hour or two of air, the fruit fleshes out, purple plums and black cherries come pouring out.  Maybe not platonic black cherries, but the kind you can usually get at the supermarket.  There’s some blood/iron/meat, wet leather, and violets on the nose, and rose and mint wafting afterwards.  The finish has the classic almond oil note, which fills out the short tannins.  Not a long finish.  Great with food, a bit lean on its own. — 9 days ago

WNH Italian Night.

This is without a doubt one of the most unique wines I’ve had in some time. Coming from an area of Italy that isn’t far from Austria, had I tasted this blind, not only would I have guessed northern Rhône (just a step above crozes-hermitage), but there is no way I would have taken this to Italy.

A mix of ruby and purple in the glass, you get the sense this will be heavier than the average Italian wine, and it is. But when you smell it, I was immediately taken to northern Rhône. A beautiful array of potpourri, dried black cherries, bacon fat, cracked black pepper, iron, and juniper berries (added notes of charcoal and dried plums on day two). Vibrant acidity on the palate. I followed this for two days, the first with about 90mins of a decant and it bulked up throughout the night. Heftier on day two. Underripe black cherries, grilled red and black fruits, tar, forest floor, and some funk trying to channel its way in. I don’t have a lot of experience with the lagrein grape, but this is a syrah imitator. Really enjoyed this.

Elisabetta Foradori

Lezer Foradori Teroldego 2019

High acid. I think this is a blend. Watermelon and cherry candy and some light tannins. Some cherry pit almond finish. This is fuchsia rosé, but in the picture it almost looks like a Nebbiolo. It gets floral with air but my guests and I finished it before it opened too much. — 20 days ago

Im curious, but the varietal is elusive to me when I’m on the hunt. All good things to those who wait.

@Rhonely Boy her regular bottlings are great. There are only a few makers whose wines make it to this country, but they tend to be worth trying.

Lot 42 Trentino Pinot Grigio 2015

Just the right mix of fruitiness and dryness as you’re drinking outside at dinner with your little kids and they are yelling and asking for your attention and slamming things and all you think is “God damn, this wine is just right.” — 15 days ago
