  • You know the wines of Tuscany, sure – but it’s such a blanket term. Drill a bit deeper and there’s a world of hidden gems to discover far beyond the ones you already know. The area around the town of Grosseto, along the Mediterranean coast in southwest Tuscany, is known as Maremma. The coastal location benefits from the region’s prized maritime ... Read More

  • Cantina Santa Maria la Palma Aragosta Vermentino di Sardegna 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral, light and peachy on the nose. Nicely spiced on entry with a zip of acidity that turns into good peach, apple and lemon flavors with some oak spice to finish. Refreshing and light. Read More

  • Cantina Santa Maria la Palma Cannonau di Sardegna le Bombarde 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Cinnamon spice and black pepper on the nose with light red fruit aromas of candied cherry and raspberry compote. Fresh and lively on the palate this is easy drinking and well balanced with more cherry fruit with strawberry and a bit of cream towards the finish, chunky tannins and a smoky, oaky finish. Very nice. Read More

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • We tend to spend an awful lot of our time running around looking for things. We look for the greatest wines, within our budgets of course, and we look for the perfect wine for ribs, greek salad, or whatever it is we like to eat, and we seek out the greatest value wines on a regular basis. That last search can a get a little silly. Often we’re lo... Read More

  • Time to do a little cellar cleaning and what better way to start than with the odds and ends of Italian wines that have been building up in the basement. Sadly theres no real cohesive theme here, though a few varieties do appear more than once among the tasting notes that follow. There’s not even a pricing paradigm that’s  useful here, though mo...

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More
