Generous, intense, brooding, sexy wine from accomplished winemaker #SebastianNasello of #PodereLeRipi. Due to #sommlife, I've had approximately 60 #sangiovese based wines in 48 hours. This one takes the cake. Or, the steak, as it were. #bonsai is from a #montalcino vineyard with 63,000+ vines/ha, forcing hydrostatic stress & rapid root development. 600 bottles produced. Almost all, sadly, consumed greedily upon release (guilty as charged). I'd love to see where this goes... — 7 years ago
PSA: #brettanomyces in #craftbeer does NOT automatically mean #sourbeer ! This 100% #brett #BelgianBeer inspired Avery Ann'y #Ale is a 0% #horseblanket, 100% enjoyable, dry, stonefruit-driven delight. Funk is often a product of competing yeasts (ie sacch vs brett). If you had to physically fight for finite resources, wouldn't you get sweaty & smelly too? — 8 years ago
