Valle Reale

Chateau Feuillet

Valle d'Aosta Moscato Bianco 2017

Aromatic candy - perfumed orange blossom and honey jasmine tea. Smells sweet.

A big Moscato - voluptuous and a textural sensation - is it syrupy? Is it just the alcohol (14.5%)? Is it fatty? Is it acidic? It’s all of these at once.

I had a hard time understanding whether this was actually sweet or just aromatically suggestive of sugary things. I still don’t have my mind made up.

Goes down a little hot. Extremely honeyed - then orange and passion fruit and bitter grapefruit before a long exit.

Abbazia di Novacella (Stiftskellerei Neustift)

Kerner 2019

A straw-yellow white wine with a green expression. It is pleasantly delicate on the nose with slight hints of peach, green pear and a sprinkle of spice. A full bodied taste delivering a crisp finish. Excellent pairing with with pancetta, smoked mackerel and family. Buy 2-3 bottles because you will want to extend the occasion. — 9 days ago

Valle de Uco Malbec 2015

The 2016 is special. Great length on the palate with an extra extended finish. Needs a big huge ribeye to balance off this massive black fruit mouth feel. — 3 days ago

Ver Sacrum

Los Chacayes G.S.M.

That Syrah really comes into the nose, playing that usual barnyard funk.

First wave is lighter bodied yet completely flavorful with pomegranate (red fruit only) lemon basil, raspberry, unripe Moro oranges.

2nd wave is the lovely lingering finish of jolly rancher red, and a mouth filling satisfaction.

I love this producer. Amazing things going on here.

Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT Sangiovese 2011

Nice wine but probably a couple years past its prime to some degree. Still in a good place. Quite inky dark. Nice dark fruit, hint of bitterness, good acid. — 16 days ago

Santos Brujos Tempranillo 2017

Look closely… I have bottle number 666. Witchy bottle with an evil number!
The number may be bad, but the wine is all good! After all, it’s what’s inside that counts.
Coffee, berries and spice and everything (not so) nice, with good acid (not in your face!).
