Reminiscing about this amazing value Super Tuscan we had at Officina last week during restaurant week in DC.

Restaurant week at Officina and a perfect wine for our three course meal. Thank you Natalie for the recommendation. Deep ruby red in appearance. Took some time to open up on the nose but showed layers of mocha, floral, touch of minerals, blue and black fruits and spices. Medium tannins (5.5/10) with balanced acidity and a medium plus body. Plush Merlot definitely comes through in the mid palate with black currants, black cherries, chocolate, espresso and a touch of earthiness. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023.
__________
Crazy good wine for only $60.00 on a wine list. Made up of 50% Sangiovese with the remainder made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, making this a true Super Tuscan Blend. All the Sangiovese is aged in stainless steel while the rest are aged in barriques. This wine is from an area in the southern part of Tuscany called Maremma, more specifically Upper Maremma in the Colline Metallifare zone. Need to find some more of this IGT. Label is designed by Raffaele De Rosa.

Absolutely, let’s do that.

Mango Vignoles

First thing I noticed was the bright orange sunset color and then I thought “oh shit! The bottle says mango.” The color is gorgeous and vibrant. Smells fruit. I took one sip and it was like have mango soaked in rum or something. It’s so juicy and bursting with flavor. Great for dessert or a sweet treat. I approve! #badandboozypod #winegasm #reviews #winehoes — a year ago

Saliva glands activated. It’s juicy y’all!!! Aromatic, floral notes. Subtle sweetness of mango, grapefruit, etc. Very refreshing. Well balanced. Crisp acidity. This is perfect as I’m drinking on a lazy Sunday afternoon listening to podcasts. 🥂#badandboozypod #whitewine #lazysunday #winegasm — a year ago

Just when I thought I’d fallen out of love with white wine, I found this. This is answer to Chardonnay since I’d become largely uninterested. Aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine and peach drew me in. It’s full body and creaminess got me to stay. This is the closest I’ve gotten so far to a white BBW. Reasonably priced. I’m looking to forward to having this again and again. Shout out to the screw top. #badandboozypod #whitewines #winegasm — a year ago

Mind blown - lots of cab and syrah - luscious fruit and heavy on the alcohol side. Delicious #wine ! Having a #winegasm right now and that's not normal. — 4 years ago

@Lucila Pescarmona - amazing! So this wine came from Peru. My girlfriends mom visited and brought this back for us. How funny no!? I will look for it here in NYC - let me know if you ever come it would be great to meet you!
