  • A Comfortable Chewbacca & Seasonal Shelback

    … the Nebbiolo-based juice. We've all been trained to expect boisterous wine when sipping Barbaresco but this seemed more like a big Pinot or Gamay. It couldn't have been that bad, however, I did go back for a second glass after all. I suppose there's as much good to be found in red fruit as there is in brooding, dark fruit - especially when paired with salami…

  • Massolino Barolo 2010

    …. This wine, though, is quite beautiful. Serralunga d’Alba, Piedmont, Italy 14% alcohol. This is incredibly good. Aromatic nose of warm herbs, spice, tea, roses, black cherries and with a distinct pipe tobacco sweetness. The palate is supple with sweet raspberry and cherry fruit, some pepper, some herby warmth and grippy tannins. There’s real generosity to this wine, which is nicely balanced. Fabulous. 95/100 (UK agent Liberty Wines) …

  • Office Holiday Party Time

    … Bello for an Italian repast, it shouldn't be much of a surprise that I'm adding a couple of Italian wines to The List tonight. It's far more surprising - to me at least - that I'm only adding two bottles. The Boss likes throwing out a good selection of wines at the start of the evening - a couple of this and two or three of that - but I didn't start…

  • Poggia Basso Grappa del Piemonte

    …? No. It’s highly alcoholic. I think it may have dissolved taste buds. I think I’m adding an ice cube. Two ice cubes. Drinking it is not much different from the nose, except it’s all circus peanuts. Have I mentioned I hate circus peanuts? Okay, it’s like a purer version of circus peanuts without all the additives. I’m not sure if that’s an improvement…

Personnellement, à la lumière de ceci et du fait que 2009 est considéré comme un millésime généreux et un peu plus accessible en jeunesse au Piedmont, je ne toucherai pas à mes 2006 et mes 2008 avant au moins l’année…

  • Indigenous Italy

    … Italy is one of the most varied wine countries in the world, particularly because they have so many indigenous varietals – over 6000! There are no generalizations to be made, especially in a country whose climates and soil are so varied from one section to another. Italian wine labeling doesn't necessarily makes thing any clearer, since…
