The Wines of Alto Adige
25 November 2019 19:15
As times goes on, I have fewer criteria for the wines I like to drink on a regular basis. First, regardless of place or grape, a wine has to be well-made and typical for what it is. Mineral and earth qualities help keep my interest. But above all, a wine has to be delicious. And if I have to define the delicious-factor, it means a wine has a really good fruit-acid balance with emphasis on high natural acidity. Further, if it’s a red wine, the winemaking—as in tannin management and use of oak—also has to be good. Last but not least, the wine has to be a good value.

The Best Time to Drink that Barolo? Right Now
22 November 2019 19:43
One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding Barolo is that you need to wait decades before the wines are ready to drink.

While this advice may have once been true, it no longer applies to modern-day Barolos. Essentially, those made from about 2000 on can be enjoyed much earlier, even after eight or 10 years. For some of the warmer vintages, waiting too long could even lead to some bitter surprises.

How Volcanic Soils Halted A Winemaking Scourge On Sicily’s Mount Etna
11 November 2019 18:53
On Italy’s island of Sicily, below a sometimes smoking Mount Etna volcano, the city of Catania bustles with traffic—thrashing motor scooters and dovetailing slipstreams of honking cars. There are color and nobility within this city of endlessly long boulevards on subtle inclines. Colorful open-air markets sell live, wiggling lumache (snails) for five Euros a kilo, smoked provolone cheese in the shape of miniature tied sacks, and bastardoni—cactus figs from the mountain village of Bronte (which also supposedly grows the world’s tastiest pistachios).

Brunello Di Montalcino’s ‘Grand Cru’ Vineyard
01 November 2019 19:31
Some areas of the world, like Burgundy, have an official system for denoting superior vineyards by using the term ‘grand cru’ for the best sites and ‘premier cru’ for second to best. The first inkling of carving out this classification is believed to have taken place during the 11th century with the Cistercian monks discovering the idea of terroir (sense of place). It is one of the reasons no other wine region evokes the idea of terroir more than Burgundy. But although other great wine areas such as Montalcino in Tuscany and their Brunello di Montalcino long-lived red wines (100% Sangiovese) have no official system in place, a hillside by the name of Montosoli has emerged as an impressive site.
