Celebrating Valentine’s Day? Honestly, if there is a time to celebrate, it’s now. Grab a bottle, pour a glass and toast with yourself, your friends, your family or your significant other! Here are some of my current favorites!
There’s a new favorite Champagne in town, and it’s J. Charpentier Blanc de Blancs Brut. Perfect for a celebration or just a regular Tuesday.
The Langhe Arneis Inprimis is a fresh and fruity white wine that pairs well with fish and shellfish. You’ll find aromas of yellow flowers and peach and a high (but balanced) acidity!
The first notes that hit are spices. Herbs. Licorice. Concentrated fruit in the mouth, typical of a Roberto Voerzio Dolcetto. Juicy, almost sweet. Predominantly ripe cherries, but also other ripe dark fruits. An impressive wine!
A powerful wine with an explosive nose. I almost get a hint of mint, along with dark red berries and some spices. Good acidity and long finish.
I tasted the 2017 and 2018 side by side. The 2017 was very good, but when tasting it next to the 2018 it almost fell a little short. In the 2018 there is an explosion of floral notes. A very powerful nose. One of the more expressive Nebbiolo’s I’ve tried. The wine is young with big tannins, but they disappear quite quickly and you’re left with beautiful floral notes.
Subtle nose with notes of spices, leather, flowers. Tastes just like a Barolo should taste – elegant and balanced. A big powerful wine, yet elegant, with a long finish.
