I have been a fan of di Majo Norante for some years (Molise, Italia) and have sampled many wines from this producer - all excellent value and high quality. Ramitello is something of a flagship offering. It is from the denominated area known as Biferno and consists of 15% Aglianico - an ancient, tannic grape of Greek provenance (the rest is Mon...

Christmas in Naples is truly worthy of the word abbondanza, or abundance, where preparations for feasting are readied weeks in advance. The kickoff is always Christmas Eve, traditionally known as La Vigilia, or the vigil. In times past, in accordance with church law, this was a day of fast, so only fish dishes appeared. It is still possible to ... Read More

Italian Roses, that's what’s for dinner. And before you go there let me just say yes these are all from the importer Winebow. They sent me a selection of Italian roses, and no one else did so I'm tasting them together and reporting on them as a package. Good on Winebow you might say.I received great fact sheets with each of these wines, which co... Read More

I'll be tasting about 65 2008 Barolos and 2009 Barbarescos each morning for 4 days straight, giving me good idea bout the nature and quality of those vin... Read More
As many of you know, vellovino has a blog that combines cycling and wine. And I happen to think the best way to see any wine country is on a bike--whether that takes one day or many. So we're teaming up to cover the wine territory of the Spanish Vuelta, probably the third most important stage race in cycling. (TdF and Giro d'Italia being the ... Read More
Watching stage one today, I saw an ad for a "virtual" TdF. Wasn't paying a lot of attention but I guess it's one of those things where you put your bike up on rollers and watch video or something. Kind of silly when the weather is as good as it has been here in the Bay Area.But the bigger reason my mind wandered was I remembered someone who dra... Read More
I am fairly new to wine and am just learning about all the different types and regions of wine. I tend to lean towards the more dry and red wines.. I was looking for a summer wine, one I could drink chilled.. I have recently discovered the "unoaked" chardonnays and I love them.. Is there any other types that fall close to this category? Especi... Read More
Hello wine lovers. I am new to types of red wines and forgive me for speaking of a low end wine but I like the lambrusco and I want to expand my palette. I like the sweet, smooth, fruty type reds, any suggestions. Also I was told of a really good wine to add in spagghetti sauce but i did not get the correct spelling. It sounded like Piazzi or...
