Anna Spinato Prosecco NV one of the best I have tasted in a long while.. fresh and lively on the palate very pretty finish, without the blunt harshness that some of them have
Elvin Pinot Grigio 2012 again a lively citrus on the palate..not the boring placcid Pinot Grigio that seems so prevalent. a little pricy though
Riofava Roero Arneis .. a little minerality on the nose, lots of mouthfeel and viscousity... nose doesnt tell what the body is.. nice.. a pretty italian varietal.
Riofava Barbera D'Alba .. maybe the weakest in this bunch. Italian stink and nice enough acidity but the body is more about linear flavors and a little iodine
DeLuca Montepulciano d'Abruzzo .. dark color and flavors.. a slight vegetal edge on the front that disappears.. with a surprisingly rich finish... hidden gem area of Italy
DeLuca Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DiRe .. Of the King.,, a little more oak treatment and interestingly to me not as good as the first less expensive.. soft nose and very abrupt rough tannins
Riofava Barolo DOCG slight brickish color, acidity is good with light cola and tea notes on the end.. a little more feminine style low end pricing for barolo
Fraccaroli Denique Malvasia Spumante Demi Sec NV you dont see much sparkling Malvasia and this may explain why.. its a weird juxtaposition of sweet and dry..wasnt really a fan
Fraccaroli Malvasia Istriana Valerie... a traditional style of Malvasia.. burnt caramel in color and on the palate.. honey and thick but not overly cloying... interesting.
