  • Barolo is the “King” of Italian wines. Its crown, however, has changed during the past 50 years or so. Italy’s wine laws went into effect in the mid-1960’s. At that time Barolo was a DOC wine. There were 3 categories: DOC Regular (Normale), DOC Riserva, and DOC Riserva Speciale. Two years of aging in cask and 13% alcohol was required by all thre... Read More

  • Friuli (or more properly Friuli Venezia Giulia) lies in Italy’s northeastern corner. Protected from the northern winds by the Austrian and Slovenian Alps, Friuli’s climate is tempered by the Adriatic. The winemakers of this area have a reputation of being forward thinking and producing excellent white wines -- reds account for just under 40%. Tr... Read More

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • If the walls of an old Irish village could speak, they'd probably tell you they're sorry they didn't leave you any wine.  An excavation on of a former memorial garden on Society Street in the Irish town of Derry-Londonderry revealed the ruins of a village said to have been destroyed in a rebellion in 1608, said the BBC in a story published today...

  • This offer from Ian Cauble is looking pretty attractive, too... Winter has officially arrived here in California—temperatures are dropping, there is waist-deep snow in the Sierras, and almost every night I catch myself craving hearty cuisine and robust, meaty red wines. More often than not, this impulse leads me to a bottle of Nebbiolo. And whil... Read More

  • Perhaps we can throw all sorts of wines in here with a mysterious WTF factor, whether photos of the wine, its label, logo, descriptions or what have you. Who knows what they might be? I'll start things out.From the opening scene of the current episode of a well-received TV show: what is this wine? Does it actually exist? What, if anything, is wr... Read More

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States. A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...

  • Just found another offering for the same Muscadet winemaker I recommended above. My warning flag popped up because this level of attention often leads to future price rises...  ;-(From the Somm Select flash site.

  • 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...

  • Many of us think of Chianti as an expensive, everyday wine but of course the truth of the matter is much more complex than that, and it just got even more complex. Adding complexity where it is not necessary seems to be something the Italians excel at, and with the introduction of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione they may have just done just that... Read More
