Franc Perfection

Bright medium ruby with basically no edge.  Dirty baby diaper, smoked sausage and petrichor rule the nose, settling down to a cut grass, cinnamon-stick sorta relative calmness, although *calm* is a complete misnomer for this bottle.   121 more words

Foradori Teroldego, 2013

First time ever we’ve blogged about a Teroldego.  Probably have had some in one of our many trips to Italy but don’t recall.

Overripe plum (in a juicy, appetizing sense), un-hulled strawberries (in a not so perfect balance sense), a smoky medicinal top note (in an interesting and provocative sense) and a striking acidity on the finish (in a palate cleansing red meat sense).  97 more words
