  • Bianchi Refosco 2005

    Snoothrank:

    First, DNA studies show Refosco to be unrelated to Mondeuse. Secondly, I tasted this superb wine last Friday night at an event in Santa Barbara. Someone described it as "angular," and that's perfect. Big, big fruit, fairly heavy tannins. Bright but earthy. High summer in an ancient crumbling Italian village. I went back to it twice over the even... Read More

  • Adesso Cagnina di Romagna 2012

    Snoothrank:

    My taste for red wine has been "acquired" and Adesso is really helping me bridge over to red. I usually drink this at room temperature, but I may try it chilled. I've served it at many dinner parties, and everyone seems to love it! Read More

  • Adesso Cagnina di Romano 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A great red wine when you are looking for something on the sweeter side of things. My boyfriend is still breaking into the wine culture so he is not very keen on dryer wines and he absolutely LOVES this wine because of the sweetness with that slight hint of a dryer undertone. I personally have been drinking more dry wines for quite a while but... Read More
