  • And northern California secessionists have repeatedly wanted to have Santa Barbara included in their bailiwick when SoCal is jettisoned. California does have its share of characters with opinions.Toscana is usually considered part of 'Central' Italy, as is Rome. Culturally and historically it's easier to add it to northern Italy if you split the... Read More

  • Then, if you want to break the budget, there's always the 1996 Quinterelli Valpolicella in this offer from a famous merchant up in Berkeley!  ;-)  Quintarelli's 2005 Rosso del Bepi offering from the same shop needs more cellaring, but is within the budgetary parameters. I still think Valpolicella and Amarone offers perhaps too strong a like/disl... Read More

  • Hey, Burgundy isn't really that far away! The guy was fairly specific about Northern Italian.  I love Tuscany and it's offerings as much as Piedmont and Veneto.The poster admitted not knowing much about Italian wine and perhaps his friend wouldn't know a Brunello from a Barolo.  I gave two good examples of Northern Italian wine that can be put a...

  • Toddo,When I think Northern Italy, I think Veneto and that means Amarone.  However, Piedmont is also North and Barolo is another good one for cellaring.  Where are you in the US?  Are there some good wine shops near you?  If so, go see what their stock of Amarone and/or Barolo is and what years they are.  Some vintages are better than others.  2...

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More

  • St Joe is one of the most underrated regions IMO. Crozes too actually - I have some from 1990 that are just excellent.But yeah, the prices are getting stupid. I don't  think it will become Burgundy though. Burgundy is kind of a reaction to Bordeaux, whereas Hermitage used to be put INTO Bordeaux.So people who objected to the large corporate owne...

  • Ah, charbono.... mmmmmm....Inglenook and cases and cases of the stuff back in the late '70s, early '80s. Very first case lots I ordered regularly. Absolutely dailies, but something well beyond quaffable. Lots of enjoyment there. From the LA Times back then:Rare But Well Done : Charbonos by Inglenook Are Neither Common Nor CostlyAugust 06, 1989|R... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Are you down with Dolcetto?


  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

  • I agree with DM that the Ridge Geyserville is excellent.  I have enjoyed the handful of samples that I have tasted of the Geyserville.  I've never done a side-by-side blind comparison, though.  Here is a question for the Wisdom of the Snooth Crowd.  I have read, here on the Forum, I believe, that the Geyserville is more of an "early drinker" tha...
