  • 2013 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=1235323&id=1&___z=5rSiFOIir0zVhdHRf5rsmw%3d%3d'>2013 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino</a></b></font><br>The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a tight and tonic red wine with loads of fresh fruit and crisp acidity at the back. The wine is simple, clean and compact in structure. It would make a great pairing partner to pasta with a hearty meat sauce or breaded veal chops. It's your quintessential food wine. Altesino is an estate in dynamic motion. I had not been back in a number of years and the property has seen an impressive series of positive changes during my absence. Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini runs her historic property with deft precision and a careful eye for both aesthetics and quality. The yellow-rimmed botte in her cellar are a prime example of that feminine touch. When Elisabetta purchased the property in 2002 she had just emerged victorious from a bidding war with Château Margaux. The feisty Elisabetta who owns the adjacent Caparzo property tells me: "I just couldn't have French neighbors." Her aim in terms of winemaking is to stay true to Montalcino tradition. Because she owns vineyard parcels in the four quadrants of Montalcino, she has added blending flexibility to make the wines she wants by sourcing fruit with different ripeness from the various subzones. Importer(s): Leonardo LoCascio Selections (A Member of the Winebow Group), 31 West 27th Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10001, (212) 255-9414, winebowgroup.com/our-companies/leonardo-locascio-selections/<br> Rating: 89  <a href=http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/pfio.aspx?id=1235323 >Estimated Cost: $20-$36</a>

  • Sour Grapes – wine fraud movie now on Netflix
    <p>Sour Grapes recently went live on Netflix. Has Netflix recommended it to you yet? If not, you’re clearly not watching the right shows! After speaking with one of the directors and seeing the trailer, I was ready to fire up the documentary when I saw it was available.

  • Daniel Johnnes, Burgundy specialist, joins Grand Cru
    <p>Daniel Johnnes may be the closest thing the American wine world has to Burgundy royalty. Yesterday he announced that he has joined Grand Cru Selections, an importer and wholesaler based in New York City, as a partner. It’s a big move, if somewhat “inside baseball.” “This is an opportunity to be a partner in a […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2016/11/02/daniel-johnnes-grand-cru/">Daniel Johnnes, Burgundy specialist, joins Grand Cru</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
