  • 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

  • Mt. Etna is located in northeastern Sicily in the province of Catania. Viticulture on the lower slopes of Mt. Etna dates back millennia. We live, however, in an age where we want to know what you have done for me lately. That’s good news for Etna’s DOC wines. Winemaking on Europe’s most active volcano is hot, both literally and figuratively. Etn... Read More

  • The reach of Santa Rosa-based Jackson Family Wines now stretches from one side of the world to the other. The family-owned winery recently purchased South Africa's Fijnbosch farm, a piece of land which, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, includes a 20-acre vineyard in South Africa's famed Stellenbosch region. “The family has been lookin...

  • Lucky you.  I was just there... Piedmont is pretty stretched out.  If you want to be in Barolo/Barbaresco country, I stayed at a really nice agriturismo (read: Bed and Breakfast) in Castiglione Falletto called Tenuta Montanello.  It's a working winery, although not one of the stars.  But the hosts are extremely nice and it's quite reasonable.  I...

  • 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

  • Tenuta di Lilliano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Deep with wild berry, laurel, dried leather and nutty oak aromas on the nose that come off as being a bit stern but layered and fresh. Ripe and open in the mouth, immediately showing a really fine blend of power and transparency. The tannins are rather fine and subtle, making this very supple and drinkable with nuanced nutty oak and fresh raspbe... Read More

  • Tenuta di Lilliano Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    80% Sangiovese, 20% unspecified complementary varieties Wild yeast organic earthy, funky aromas greet the nose, though under all of that this really has a big, perfumed nose with great complexity. Edgy and wonderfully clear on the palate, this is awesome though it has some funk on the palate that will turn some people off. late arriving mineral... Read More

  • What a disappointment!! Even their best wines were nothing out of the ordinary and they wanted $40 a bottle!! I think $10 a bottle would have been more fitting. Don't get me wrong, most are not bad (some are, though), they are all just non-descript - and I am a long-time wine appreciater. On top of it, their "Holiday Event" is a bunch of h...
