  • Poggia Basso Grappa del Piemonte

    …. No matter what you think of grappas, if you have an access to the Trader Joe’s that carries it, you owe it to yourself to try it – you might discover your new favorite drink. I respect my friend Anatoli’s opinion on all things wine, but I’m guessing that production quality may have changed in the two years since that spirit review. Or, you know, different strokes for different folks. I could not find another review through Google. Reviewed 18 November 2014. by…

  • Three Bottles: Victoria Moore

    … was lucky to share a bottle of Barbaresco Falletto Asili 2007 in Piemonte last November. And at the end a primeurs dinner in Bordeaux Christian Seely poured a Quinta do Noval colheita. They are all beautiful wines but I should have known it was the 1997 when it made me go a bit meerkat-y, as it had the previous time I’d tried it. When wines are that good there are no words, just a sense of startled pleasure. Victoria – thank you. www.howtodrink.co.uk Like this: Like Loading... Related …

  • Picton Bay South Island (New Zealand) Pinot Noir, 2013

    … After drinking the Monte Degli Angeli, I had to try my other Pinot Noir bargain from a recent Ann Arbor trip. There are many good wine bargains at Trader Joe's, but this New Zealand Pinot for $7.99 belongs right at the top of the list. This is a bit darker than Piemonte Pinot (below). Beautiful spicy nose--strawberries, cherries, ginger…

I was sipping with a few Maialino employees at the bar and was informed that it wasn't just this bottle that was showing the slight V.A. note. Happy Nebbiolo Season, Y'all!…
