Petite Sirah 2017

Great as expected for the price and grape. Not sure if I will buy again I’ve had better value for the price, particularly Macchia petite Syrah. — 4 years ago


Dubious Petite Sirah 2022

Dark purple with near black core. Inviting nose of blueberry compote and ash. Echoed on the lush full palate which freshens the blueberries and adds ripe blackberries, juicy (medium plus) acidity, and firm but supple tannins from entry to lengthy finish. A classic warm climate PS. Lots of black and blue fruit, body, and tannins. Steak is its friend of course, but it would show very well as a sipper with medium to hard cheeses. Drink now through 2032. — 2 months ago

Tenuta Asinara

Hassan Grenache Blend 2017

Distinctly Sardinian with macchia brush of wild herbs persistent on the nose and palate, floral loft, red and black fruit follow, beautiful wine with a balance between traditional and modernity shining through — a year ago

Podere del Visciolo

Pian Della Macchia Toscana Red Blend 2015

Medium depth with strong enough tannins to give it the structure it needs. Surprisingly had vanilla flavors along with violet fruit and good round notes. Different than most Italians I’ve had but still a delicious wine. — 4 years ago

Ü Pastine Portofino Bianchetta Genovese 2020

Tasted with marvelous branzino with fresh herb and tomato “spring caponata,” this wine was an ideal embodiment in a glass of the “macchia,” the Italian version of the Rhône’s “garrigue.” Bright pear, apple, lemon and yellow plum with an underlying steely minerality and wonderful sensations of hay and salt air-tinged brush. Surprisingly juicy but also lean, it’s an ideal wine for fish — 2 years ago
