Valle D'aosta, Italy

Gerbelle Didier

Vigne Plan Valle d'Aosta Petit Rouge 2016

Really lovely aromatics, funky, fresh, and a bit green. The palate is entirely alpine, almost crunchy red fruits, with cedar, pine, and menthol. Excellent restraint with the fruit concentration. Great balance. — 17 days ago

Manni Nössing

Eisacktaler Kerner 2018

Manni is THE advocate for Kerner - an under the radar variety that I’d describe as Riesling with a figure. His clocks in at 13.5%, so you’d expect some richness but it comes out a clean translucent silvery green skin. It looks mute but sings. Grapefruit and lychee and white flowers and white pepper too. — a day ago

🔥🔥 Nice pull. Ian D’Agata seems all over Kerner too in his latest piece on Alto Adige, or is it Sud Tirol?

It’s good stuff @Jae Cho ! Suditrol is part of Altige, which is the region...

Sorry guys, just to clear that one
Alto Adige and Sud Tirol are the same thing. People there talk kind of first language German and it is exactly the translation.
BTW Manni Nossing is indeed a great pull, well done!!

This is sick. Nose is so so sick. Chestnut. Tree bark. Aged character. Leather. Floral and peach come after air. Complex and mineral. Deep, structured and so so so dry. Apricot peel. Nice finish. Amazing wine. — 9 days ago

Delicious. Dark purple color, aromas of plum, toast, mashed bramble berry. Intense, deep and still polished/softish tannin. Feels like there could be Merlot here. Good w homemade Bolognese. — a day ago

Metodo Classico Millesimato Extra Brut Rose 2016

I should have known, but wow I'm really in love with sparkling Nebbiolo (Spanna) rosé!

Prior notes still apply:
Nose has cut yellow & red cherry, washed raspberries, freshly baked white bread, (light) white pepper and moist chalk.
Palate has chalky cherry, raspberry juice, medium acid and crusty bread on the very long finish.
