  • So the Ruche went over pretty well. Served to some friends my wife and I had ... medium complexity.The ArPePe Valtellina Rosso at first showed better than the Ruche, showing some nice lacy tannins that went better with the food I was having at the time (chicken wings, mashed potatoes), but I found the wine to be lacking some fruit, and the aci...

  • If you want to do Nebbiolo at a price, Ghemme (Cantalupo is my go to) is safe and there's Valtellina and Gattinara, of course, and some stuff from outside the DOCGs.  But we were talking about special bottles.  I think it would be hard to find a palate that didn't approve of Monprivato--sure, lots of tannins and acids, but somehow Mauro Mascarel...

  • Italy has a huge number of "native" grape varieties, mostly because ... to find, but from Ghemme and Valtellina, not so much.  (Shame, since Ghemme is less expensive and more approachable--in Italy, anyway.) Chianti and Montalcino are well known over here, but there are many areas producing sangiovese.  Vino Nobile is not impossible to find, b... Read More

  • So, here's a question.  Burgundy lovers insist that no New World Pinot Noir can (or will ever) compare to one from Burgundy.  Since I am still looking for that Pinot Noir epiphany and, frankly, hope to experience it on October 26, I mostly shrug at that comment.  However, are we now doing the same thing with Nebbiolo?  I have had a handful of Le...

  • GdP hope you don't mind me reposting your comment on WB, but thought it was very insightful. This was in answer to the thread titled, So what wine turned you on to Piemonte?"1978s from Vietti, Marcarini and Aldo Conterno in about 1983.
