Sometimes, cheaper can actually be better.
The Tommasi wine is classic, beginning with a waft of fruit underlain with leather. 92 points. Highly Recommended.
This 1990 Col d’Orcia wine is nearing 30 years old and you’d never guess from looking at it. Highly Recommended. 94 points.
We’re dipping into a summer feel in the middle of winter -- turning up the heat and sitting down to a light fish dinner and crisp white wine.
Surprisingly classic for a new style of wine.
I found the 2010 vintage of this wine to be my favorite at a recent luncheon with winemaker Alessio Planeta.
A luxurious silky palate of dark fruits, blueberry and black cherry, with a touch of real black licorice. Highly Recommended - 93 points.
