  • If in the States right now I'd definitely be buying off this list. Really do like Chambers Street.

  • Now these are proper weekend wines (or birthyear wines: see multiple candidates for a daughter and a girlfriend and a sister in there). Nice of Chambers Street to ensure that they're properly aged, too.  ;-) The original carton for Burlotto 1971 Barolo Barale, Burlotto, Cappellano - and some other fine old Piedmont wineThree of our great favorit...

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Barbera, when you ask most people their initial reaction to the name might yield blank stares, or worse. While Barbera is capable of producing some impressive wines it is also all too capable of producing pretty bad wines, both with capable winemaking and without. The problem lies with Barbera’s incredibly high natural acidity, and the issues th... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    A hint of the forest, sour white cherry with some warm alcohol punching it up. After dinner sipping and enjoying it. Read More

    Wine review by Calamus


  • With just a few days to go before my departure for Piedmont, I was thrilled to have been able to join in Antonio Galloni’s brilliant La Festa del Barolo this year. Featuring a tasting of 2008 Barolo, it was perfect timing; a chance for me to revisit this excellent vintage, and to help set the stage for my upcoming tastings from the 2009 vintage.... Read More

  • I’ve been writing a fair amount of commentary lately, some of it dealing with wine prices, but only tangentially; so today I wanted to take a look at where fine wine prices are going, and perhaps identify some smart plays for the savvy wine shopper.I’m dealing with some relatively expensive wines here, most in the $50 and up range, so while I un...

  • 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. What I am thinking of doing is going to Slow Food recommended restaurants in Piemonte, and asking the owners or staff to help me select a wonderful wine from the region   and the... Read More

  • Paolo Conterno Ginestra Riserva Barolo 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This was 100 % purity and elegance in a bottle! Bright ruby red. Cherries, licorice and balsamic nose. Medium bodied, well balanced, soft drying tannins, definitely ready to drink with long persistent finish. Great complexity...near perfection! Read More

  • Paolo Conterno Barolo Ginestra 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This wine showed an interesting nose of bergamont, musky animal fur, olive and minerals. On the palate, it was silky yet structured with focused red fruit, leather and earth. The finish was long with wild red berries. Read More
