    … in the oak-aged wines — that make this direct comparison impossible. So instead I’ll just put our most elegant oak-aged wine out there, the Tuscanio Rosso 2009 from Società Agricola Bulichella in the Maremma in Tuscany ($35). It’s 100% Sangiovese, from the best vines on the property, aged 18 months in oak then a year in the bottle before release. Truly…

    … to it. But why? Yes it has elements of an “airy fairy” quality, lunar aspects and some mystical elements, which I’m not getting into here. Of course, if treating the earth you farm with the utmost respect is bad, well, I then clearly don’t understand farming. Anyhoo…organic wine, biodynamic wine – all great ideas that minimize our impact on the land…

  • A 15th Century Italian Feast With Organic Wines

    … Last weekend in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, historical supper club Edible History hosted a 15th Century Italian feast featuring organic wine pairings for each course.

  • 3 New Releases from Paul Dolan Vineyards

    … Paul Dolan Vineyards Have you ever had any wines from Mendocino County? Until recently when I took San Francisco Wine School’s CWAS program I had not been exposed to a lot of wine from Mendocino. At many retail wine outlets the selection from California consists mostly of Central Coast and Napa/Sonoma, with very little from Mendocino. The area…

  • Bar Prima: Upper East Side

    … Rosso di Montalcino are wonderful reds, with bigger bodies and aromas… these wines should be enjoyed with some of Bar Prima’s bar bites. For the size of the space, I must say what impressed me the most (besides the wonderful wine selection) was the food here. With no “back kitchen”, this bar produces some fantastic bruschetta and charcuterie…
