It’s so cool to me how sommeliers can smell the notes in wines. I definitely have to try some of these wines though these look delicious!

There are masses of Italian wines but the same ones are not always available so I forget which ones I liked. Colpertrone was my favorite but it’s not available anymore. Conterno has become too pricey and hard to find. So I don’t have a favorite because I cannot have one. A big fave is northern Italian white. Superb. Not available at all. Sanct Valentin. I always decant Italian wines as they are often woody or dry raisin flavored. Decanting is really essential. Then there is Bruno Giacosa just too expensive but I might try some for Year End.

Sicily has amazing wines and grapes, nice climate for warm wines, one of my favourites is Tenuta Tremollito, you should give it a look, I love their white wine, probably the best I have tried so far.

Wine Folly

We talked Sangiovese (which is the grape of Brunello) - we talked "Super Tuscans" which is what Bolgheri specializes in. And, this video is entitled "Italian red wines" - so, I *think* we have you covered. All the examples were supposed to be affordable. Brunello and Bolgheri aren't cheap! You have fancy taste!

Hey why you never speak about Georgian wines, especially when you talk about orange wines or natural wines, Georgian wine is the best and it is the most ancient!
Wine Folly
Wine Folly Hace 6 meses
We mention them in an orange wine article for sure, but the honest answer is because they are not that well distributed in the states (and the rest of the world). Also, production size of Georgian wines is quite small. Still, a very important region and notable in wine history for sure. Along with the others in the Caucasus/Zagros mountains. Thanks for pointing this out!

I feel French wines are more complicated than Italian wines, but that just maybe because I'm so familiar with Italian wines. I have a cellar full I need to review I'm waiting for a party so I can open up several bottles at the same time. Otherwise I may just hid them one review at a time. Cheers!

To bring your knowledge level up and have a unique appreciation of italian reds, one must try the following - '5 Stelle Sfursat' from Nino Negri, Valtellina DOCG in Lombardy Lagrein Riserva, Vigna Klosteranger from Muri-Gries in Alto Adige DOC (SudTirol) 25 Anni, Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG from Arnaldo Caprai in Umbria Magma Rosso, Terre Siciliane IGP from Frank Cornelissen in Etna, Sicily Terre Brune, Carignano del Sulcis superiore from Santadi in Sardinia

With out Amarone &, ripasso tolk about Italian wines its big misstake I personally think
hathor82 Hace 6 meses
@Wine Folly but in that price range you could also find some fantastic Aglianico, Lagrein, Valpolicella red (instead of Amarone), Cannonau, Primitivo, Refosco, Montepulciano, Syrah, etc. etc. etc... So we'll waiting for part II part III and so on!!! :)
Wine Folly
Wine Folly Hace 7 meses
We were picking wines within the $10-$25 - so, that rules out Amarone. That said, it was a tough choice not to include some kind of Corvina. BUT. when I went to the wine store, they had none. So, there yah go. I'm an asshole.

Typifies why I'm not a big fan of Italian wines. Regularly too acidic, requiring food to be best enjoyed, often too tannic. I don't like either quality in wine, I like dense and velvety. You can keep your terra cotta pots wine. That last one was interesting though, oddly enough once in a while you get an Italian wine that does have a distinct sweet note of maraschino cherry, which is a fun quality.

The only experience I have with Nebbiolo is through Barolo. Unfortunately (for me), I was not aware at the time that young Barolo can be excessively harsh and I got a say, those 50 $ I spent on that two-years-old Barolo were spent in pure waste. It was only a few years later I tasted a 12-years-old Barolo at a dinner party and god, did it benefit from aging. In your view, would non-Barolo Nebbiolos benefit from aging as much as their illustrious, more well known counterparts?

Apparently the Nerello Mascalese drop is not enough for you! Yes, Aglianico, Sagrantino... all of these are great choices. But, like I said... over 500 varieties in Italy makes it hard to shave down to just 5!

Would be interesting to hear what you think about Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2015. I think I tried the 2014 at a friend's house, and it was the most full-bodied wine I've ever tasted...and heavy on the alcohol.

“Ballerina with boxing gloves”...you’re awesome. No one else like you. Keep going. By the way, to add to the Italian comments, I enjoy reds from Sardinia. Love how the varietals (or their relatives) in Spain and France are a little different out in that Mediterranean climate. Great values too.

I had the 2015 of this Langhe Nebbiolo. Produttori del Barbaresco is always great value, no particular need to go Barolo, especially not for your regular house wine.
Soteriologist Hace 7 meses
@Eric Cooke What you say is true, but I bought this product for the explicit purpose of checking value for money performance in a tasting series which couldn't wait as the product would have been sold out by the time it's fully ready. Further, as regards that 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo by Produttori del Barbaresco, its low price point compared to the usual Nebbiolo price range made me expect less backbone. Also, I just love that tannic grip and astringent promise of ageability. Knowing this product's potential now, if I had two cases of it, of course I would leave it 5 years past vintage and then open a bottle per year.
Eric Cooke
Eric Cooke Hace 7 meses
That was a young Nebbiolo that you and she drank. They are supposed to be aged 10+ years. I had a 8 year old bottle once with flavors of mushroom, licorice, roses, and dark berries, with very little tannins. It was amazing. Definitely, comparable to an aged Bordeaux or a fine red Burgundy.
