Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2001 Fanetti Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Tenuta S Agnese Riserva with grilled flap meat, creamy polenta and brussel sprouts tonight. How good is this #wine? Ridiculously good. Soft fruit yet amazing acidity. Very rustic and with a unique charm. Old school style that is very impressive. $28 at Specs in ATX and a case buy for sure.
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
