Donnas Nebbiolo Blend 2015

Alpine Nebbiolo from Valle D'Aosta. Medium bodied and blood red. Creosote, cigar leaf, and red fruits. Fine tannins still working their in-never a polished wine nor should it be, and the way I prefer. Plenty of road left to develop in the glass or cellar. — 23 days ago

Vallée d'Aoste Pinot Noir 2020

Looks really good in a glass - lucid and dark cherry-raspberry like Chambord, a cordial tension of fruits and minerals. It's really lovely and has just enough complexity to work for a weeknight or weekend. — 2 months ago

Les Crêtes

Valle d'Aosta Chardonnay 2016

Medium lemon color with aromas of ripe fruits, spice and toasty vanilla oak. On the palate flavors of apple and pear with creamy lemon citrus and cedar notes. Medium finish, good acidity ending with fruit, toasty oak and spicy mineral character. — 4 months ago

Torrette Petit Rouge Blend 2013

Probably past it's aging arc but only just slightly. Crunch red fruit that is musky and starting to be dried red fruits, moderate spices accent the wine. — 2 months ago

Donnas 2018

Very nice, esp for $23. Well balanced, light body. Real complexity if you savor and swirl. But very easy drinking too. 13.5% al. I think Nebbiolo? Buy again. — 2 months ago

Grosjean Gamay 2020

Interesting Valle d’Aoste Gamay! Bright ruby/purple color. Aromas of bramble vines, dark berries, black olives and black pepper. Red and black berry fruit on the pallet with an herbal and mineral note on the finish. Tingling acidity and a silky texture. Light bodied and refreshing. Fresh and clean. I am not detecting any oak aging. Excellent Gamay based wine does not always have be come from Beaujolais. — 4 months ago
