Angiolino Maule

I Masieri Veneto Garganega 2014

This is a great “food wine”. It has good salinity/umami flavors meshing well with some lemon and lime citrus notes. Goes well charcuterie and cheeses as well as foods with some spicy notes too. A favorite to kick off or even end the night with as you nibble away on some snacks. — 4 days ago

Monti Garbi Ripasso Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2016

Terrific. Had such a complex profile. Maybe a touch of sweet on the finish, but mostly spices and fruit. It reminded me of a digestivo from le Marche, called miletti. Distinctive spices. — 3 days ago

Soave Classico Garganega 2018

My first soave - mouth watering acidity, tart green apples with a background of pithy lemon peel and a finish of pleasant sea spray salinity. Delish! — 4 days ago

Part of our social distancing journey. Went great with wood fired Pizza Margarita! Local pie they tastes like I’m in Napoli. — 19 days ago

Cadis Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2015

Once again I indulge in this pretty sin... Cherry, almond, Raisin, pencil lead, maybe chocolate too? The palate is tremendous : it goes in every direction with a huge acid backbone, a superlative width, a dense and silky matter with a soft touch on the sides, a bright fruit which shows off all along, a bit of drying tannins that kick off a fantastic finish with fruit, a bit of bitterness, some raisins and a indisputable length. Man I love this one. This is bohemian rhapsody by Queen — 4 days ago

Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore

Another wine that’s uncomplicated & delicious. One of my favorite bottles of Prosecco. Ripe fruit, but wonderfully focused. The finish is fresh & crisp. Way too easy to drink. — 8 days ago

Try some Borgoluce if you ever get the chance. They also have vintage bottlings.

Famiglia Pasqua

Passione E Sentimento Corvina Blend 2018

#corvina #croatina #merlot rosso blend made by partially dried grapes. Dried currants, prune and earthy spice nose followed up bright acidity on the palate, light to medium concentration tasting of raisins, leather and pepper on the finish stretching across a quite dry character. Interesting wine. — 5 days ago

Le Bignele Classico Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

Raisin, cherry, Raspberry, pencil lead, a bit of heat. Very wide and long palate with a extreme acid backbone and a lovely red fruit all along. It's radiating in all directions! Soft mouth feel but with a grip, a small tanginess in the rear, that gorgious fruit playing a very long tune for a wonderful finale with raisins notes. This is great! — 11 days ago
