  • 2012 Pieropan Soave Classico Calvarino
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=1003336&id=1&___z=ImQDs7MAx%2bXakj15XpiuqA%3d%3d'>2012 Pieropan Soave Classico Calvarino</a></b></font><br>The 2012 Soave Classico Calvarino impresses for its depth and the supreme quality of fruit. The classic blend used here sees 70% Garganega and 30% Trebbiano di Soave from the estate's prized vineyard sites. Smooth and silky in texture, Calvarino flows freely imparting aromatic highlights of peach, honey, orange peel, pressed jasmine and crushed mineral along the way. It ages in glass-tiled cement vats that help to lock in aromas. The Pieropan family makes a full portfolio of wines spanning from Soave to Amarone. They recently built a second winery for the production of their red wines. But as wonderful as all these products are, the true standouts are the three Soave Classico wines. No one comes close to giving a more graceful and delicate voice to the workhorse Garganega grape.

Every year since then, wine consumption has grown making the wine boom now 21 years old–old enough to buy itself a drink, legally, were it a human. But the growth, […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2015/04/06/wine-boom-turns-21-growth/">The wine boom turns 21 – but is acting aged</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
  • Why is champagne getting drier?
    <p>Champagnes seem to have been getting drier in recent years. What’s driving the trend? I put the question of declining Champagne dosage levels to Peter Wasserman today. Wasserman, along with his mother Becky, exports several grower champagnes including Godmé Pere et fils, José D’hondt, Camille Savès, and Vazart-Coquart. Wasserman said there are three main reasons.

  • Matthew McConaughey signs on to The Billionaire’s Vinegar
    <p>Wine may well be splashing on the silver screen with Matthew McConaughey in a starring role. Deadline reports that the star of Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective will headline the cinematic adaptation of the Billionaire’s Vinegar. I’m glad the project is moving ahead. It’s based on the terrific book of the same name by […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2015/03/27/matthew-mcconaughey-star-billionaires-vinegar/">Matthew McConaughey signs on to The Billionaire’s Vinegar</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
