Also one of NYT’s best 20 under $20 picks, and I totally agree.

Tenuta Santa Maria alla Pieve

Lepia Soave Garganega

Oaky Okay?

So the bouquet is a bit oaky, but the palate notes are not. Medium acidity. Peaches, melon, and slight mango.

Refreshing, but wish it had a bit more zip with the bubbles not with the acidity.

Z Prosecco

I met the winemaker David last year. Fresh and crisp, unusual for a Prosecco, 100% Glera, pleasant aromas of stone and tropical fruits. On the palate pear and peach flavors, good bubble flow, on dryer side, good balance between fruit and crispness (I prefer a dry Prosecco) ending clean and elegant. Pricey compared to the others out there, but comparison is like apples to oranges. A very nice Prosecco, one of the very best I have tasted, worth the price. — 16 days ago

Conte Emo Capodilista

Colli Euganei Irenèo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This Italian Cab has a bit of Merlot and Carmenère mixed in. The color is medium dark garnet with a bit of bricking around the edge. Aromas of blackberry are joined by the smell of minerals and a whiff of smoke. The palate has a chalky note to it - the owner referred to the wine in his presentation as “salty.” The tannins are manageable and the acidity is middle-of-the-road. The wine really puts me in mind of Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, not Napa.

Il Vino di Famiglia Castagnedi

Scaia Rosato Veneto Rondinella 2019

Nose of rose pedals, hibiscus, and lime peel. Palate seems to have a little residual sugar which lends an oily viscosity. Lots of vibrant citrusy acidity balances it nicely with floral and strawberry notes. An interesting and tasty wine. — 8 days ago

We ordered a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate my 4-0 at dinner with friends. The bottle was as beautiful as the bubbles! — 5 days ago

Colli Di Conegliano Stefen 1624 Refrontolo Red Blend 2015

Deep, dark and delicious. The nose opens with a whiff of smoke, which leads to aromas of dried cherry, cedar and pipe tobacco. The palate shows a nice mix of fruit and savory - the cherry flavor finds a black raspberry partner. Firm tannins and bright acidity make it dance on the tongue.

I was impressed. It definitely shows warm climate #chardonnay characteristics like tangy tropical fruit and cantaloupe. #volcanic soils tend to warm up and stay warm. #italy #italianwines — 13 days ago

Tamellini

Soave Garganega 2017

This is a very tasty white wine from Italy. Showing citrus, limes, lemons, green apples, spices, earth, white pepper and light vegetables.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Bitter finish with almonds.

Easy drinking with a nice, soft mouthfeel.

A good quality wine. Good all by itself or with food. I paired it with a meat filled pastry, by the pool.

I had it over a year ago, and it is drinking much nicer now. Would benefit from another few years in the bottle.

Tangy and interesting.

11.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
