Small Block Series Graziano Vineyard Charbono 2018

This may be the best charbono I’ve ever had. Hallmark sassafras, cola and rich chocolate. The tannins are big but perfectly integrated. This is one of the best Hess wines. — a year ago

Otto Soave Classico Garganega 2020

Pra Soave was calling to me from the back of the fridge and I heeded that call.

Like a really well crafted pop song, this wine is effortlessly enjoyable on a superficial level, but when I stop and think about it, there’s a lot underpinning this wine’s effortless enjoyability. Chablis like on the nose - intense minerality (limestone, but also that flinty volcanic stuff), lemon curd, pear, a hint of chamomile & blanched almonds. The texture is what makes it though - crisp but with gracefulness to it. Lively acidity in perfect balance with leesy bass notes.

Monte Grande Soave Classico Garganega 2019

Nice wine. Definitely a clear cut above your “typical” soave. Would be nice to try with some age. — 9 months ago
