  • Agreed on Riserva, and non-Riserva. I'm not really as interested in the extra aging or official qualifications, just that if the producer is deciding to bottle a regular and a riserva, the riserva is typically a better, or more highly regarded wine due to the cru, blocks within the cru, barrel select, etc. They all have their story I'm sure, and...

  • In Piemonte, esp Barolo DOCG, nebbiolo is "only" grown on south facing sites because it is a late ripener and needs the longest growing season.  The rule of thumb is that it's planted in the spots where the snow melts first. so, since we're in the Northern Hemisphere, that means south facing.  As the market for Barolo has taken off, plantings ha...

  • JD, my quick take on Cavallotto:  They use rotovinifiers, but are otherwise very traditional.  We walked through Bricco Boschis a lot because our accommodations were right next door.  (The place we stayed is where I thought they should bring in an outside winemaker, if I recall correctly:  It's called Tenuta Montanello and has good land, borderi...

  • It would have been nice to have a few more folks, since we like to get together with as many of you as we can.  We certainly had enough wine, thanks to JD. I'd say, yes, it's infanticide to drink 04 and 06 Barolo, but I think it drinks well younger, better than it used to, because some of what made it tough was faults in wine making.  Long macer...

  • Foxall and I are getting together for a Burgundy and Barolo dinner in Oakland this Saturday. We may have a seat or two available for anyone willing to make some spur of the moment travel plans. Read More

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

    Wine review by duncan 906


  • Flatiron indeed has great Italian coverage, pretty good burgundy, German, and other Europeans.They were 1 of only 2 retailers to have the 2010 Fenocchio Riserva 90 di, but quickly sold out of it. Read More

  • "So far the best place I have seen on the East Coast for Piemontese wines"You mean the West Coast? And yeah, it'd been my guess that might be the case since as far as I know it's still hard to get the access to European wines in CA that NYC has. That was part of what was behind my comment about 'good positioning'. Read More

  • Stands to reason that Cauble and Flatiron would both be targets for that importer's marketing. How's the SanFran shop other than those wines? Saw on their site recently that they'd opened it, though don't know when. Very good positioning, even if it looks like they aren't yet doing the events in The City that they're doing in NYC.
