  • I'll be in Charlotte, NC on business the week of February 24th, and was hoping some locals might be able to help out with a few questions, and maybe get together to open a bottle or two.

  • I'm thinking about taking a short trip to Piemonte, mainly to try the highly-reputed wines of the region.  I'm not interested, though, in setting up visits to wineries.

  • Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart.  Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale.  He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent...

    Snoothrank:

    ....una delle grandi soddisfazioni/"perversioni" di un Enoappassionato, è quella di conservare i vini per riassaggiarli col tempo. Ci piace verificarne l'evoluzione, riscontrarne la tenuta.

  • I last left you walking out of the Albergo Duomo in Montepulciano. I had just taken a left on the Via Ricci, and was making my way to the Piazza Duomo, where one can find the cellars of Contucci.
