Michele Chiarlo Barbera d’Asti 2011
Garnet in color, the wine is medium bodied and robust with rich, ripe cherries and earth on the nose and an elegant palate. Pairs well with a wide range of dishes: chicken scallopini with sage and wild mushrooms, farfalle pasta with pork sausage and broccoli rabe and grilled or roasted red meats.
Masi Campofiorin Rosso 2011
The 2011 Campofiorin is an IGT Rosso del Veronese executed in a Ripasso style that sees a double fermentation on Amarone skins. Campofiorin is a wine that is dear to my heart because it has long been one of my top drinking choices while sitting by the fireplace on a cold winter’s night. It offers Ripasso intensity with brooding dark fruit nuances followed by a dense, chewy build.
Feudo Maccari Grillo 2013
With a straw yellow and gold color, the wine shows intriguing and intense floral aromas, with notes of citrus, peach, almonds and sweet grass. Quite full in the mouth, the wine has rich flavors with depth, balance and freshness. Pairs well with seafood, delicately flavored first courses, white meats and grilled fish. This wine stands up well to spices, especially Asian.
Arnaldo-Caprai Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2005
Densely colored, ruby red, almost black, which develops to garnet with the ageing of the wine. Aromatically sensational, intense, with notes of mature fruit and hints of spice and aromas of vanilla transcended from the barriques. Potent, soft and velvety, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
