Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2013 Azienda Agricola Tenuta San Francesco Costa d’Amalfi Tramonti with dinner. A very simple wine that delivers a lot of flavor at a very reasonable price of 16 Euro off the restaurant wine list. Red fruited with spice and cracked pepper and no frills. This blend of Aglianico, Tintore and Piedirosso is just honest table wine without pretense. Excellent with ravioli, grilled lamb and even grilled fish.
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.
