Tenuta Nuova Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

Library 2015s courtesy of Adam via Wine Merch. Cherry, hints of tobacco and cocoa. All the edges nicely softened. Great with Casa Don Alfonso. — 3 months ago

Alfonso Soranzo (Monteforche)

LO SFUSO DI COLLINA Cabernet Franc Blend

Licorice, funky soil, earth.

Definitely unctuous, but I really appreciate it here. The jammy fruit comes through the mid palate, in a dance with the more funky notes of earth and garden. Nice acidity without it being overpowering.

Barolo Nebbiolo 1974

Tons of sediment at least an inch. Decanted for 5 hours almost undrinkable before that but then opened up beautifully. Violets, sandalwood, soy a bit of tar. Great balance. Bellissimo! — 5 years ago

Táganan Vinos Atlánticos Red Blend 2018

An airy, effusive and downright beautiful wine is the 2018 Taganan from the Tenerife Envínate property of modernist Spanish winemakers Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente. Created from 100-200 year old vines on volcanic soils, it’s a delicate, restrained wine with a gorgeous, smoky bouquet of sour cherry, strawberries and Provençal herbs; the palate, meanwhile, is saturated with very fine tannins, almost imperceptible acidity and nice length. Served lightly chilled, this is an exciting wine which should gain further interest with age. — 4 months ago

Riserva Montefico Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

Bellísimo! Eucalyptus gave way to lavender and cocoa. Tightly wound cherry with long tannic finish. Had with frito misto, gnocchi pomodoro, margherita pizza and herb rack of lamb at Casa di Don Alfonso. First indoor meal in >1 year. Was like riding a bike. — 2 years ago

Foxtrot Domino Red Blend 2017

Amazing field blend of red and white varieties - Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira alongside Nunes, Hamburg, Leona, Alessandria and Petit-grains- from Ribeira da Nisa, an 85 year-old vineyard on primarily granite soils near Portalegre in the Alentejo. Light-bodied, fresh, structured and mineral. — 3 years ago
