Emidio Pepe

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2015

Wow. First time with this wine after seeing it across many elite lists. First sip is super grippy but has an immediate and unique sweetness. After long decant, the tannins fade away and sweetness is integrated - the wine is in beautiful balance. Fruit and tension. Italy all the way — 9 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2019

Too young. Needed hours of air. Disjointed. A good amount of acidity. Some fruit showing through. There’s a lot of spice and herbs too. Will hold other bottles for a long while. — 9 days ago

Cantina Bartolo Mascarello

Barolo Nebbiolo 1964

Very light. Cherry and light still acidity. Soft and long. Maybe needs a bit more time in bottle to really shine. Surprising given the vintage — 17 days ago

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2020

Выпито вместе с Саввасом и Юлией вторым вино у меня дома 24.02.24. В противовес первому - молодое и свежее, как не крути - 2020 год. — a day ago

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2019

Gorgeous color of deep purple, without variation, earthy nose of mushroom-loam, grilled duck breast, black cherry both dried and ripe, crushed violets, brown sugar and brown bread. Round and supple mouthfeel of red cherry and bing cherry, shows ample cedar and cigar notes, oak and tart raspberry, cracked black pepper, rose petal and finally winds into a smoky graphite point that will undoubtedly blossom over the next decade.

SP68 Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Frappato

Beautiful light red color. Refreshing and fruity, some earthy and slightly funky notes. Enjoyed this as a fresh pairing to some Indian food with friends, and looking forward to trying more from this Sicilian winemaker! — 16 days ago

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2021

Popped and poured; enjoyed over two days. Best on Day 2. The 2021 “Etna Rosso” pours a bright ruby color with a transparent core; medium viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is youthful with bright cherries and raspberries, carnations and rocky minerals. On the palate, medium+ tannin and medium acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is medium. This is a very pretty wine that wins you over with its charm and it’s versatile on the dinner table as well. Great QPR. Drink now with a little patience and through 2031. — 8 days ago

Marchesi Antinori

Solaia Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

Left bank Bordeaux-style blend. Dark ruby red with a brick rim. Intense aromas of ripe black fruit, coffee, graphite, leather and a hint of menthol. The palate is explosive noting black berry/currant, tar, coffee, tobacco, black licorice, dried herbs and soy sauce. Nice touch of oak on the long and velvety finish. Ultra concentrated, full bodied and a bit on the rustic side. Beautifully balanced (the fruit and tertiary notes are in beautiful harmony) and well structured. Outstanding and aging beautifully! Cannot thank you enough for sharing this outstanding wine, Petey P! — a month ago

A blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot and Syrah. Deep Ruby with aromas of black and red fruits and floral spice aromas. On the palate black cherry and blackberry flavors with licorice, espresso and sweet oak spice. Smooth and refined tannins, long ending with fruit and sweet earthy tones. Consistent quality and good value. — 20 days ago
