Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for January 8, 2024

The post Wine Reviews: Mini Round-Up for January 8, 2024 appeared first on 1 Wine Dude.

I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes in a “mini-review” format.

They are meant to be quirky, fun, and (mostly) easily-digestible reviews of (mostly) currently available wines (click here for the skinny on how to read them), so you can get right to the point and decide if they’re for you (or not). Cheers!

  • 2020 Bissoni ‘Girapoggio’ Sangiovese di Romagna Superiore (Emilia-Romagna): Herbal, fresh, silky, and mouth-wateringly sapid. $NA B+
  • 2022 Poderi dal Nespoli ‘Dogheria’ Forli Bianco (Emilia-Romagna): White flowers, white grapefruits, white melons, and they’re all squeaky-clean. $NA B+
  • 2021 Podera dal Nespoli ‘Gualdo’ Sangiovese Predappio (Emilia-Romagna): Like a KISS cover band; the studs are on full display, but we’re all having fun! $NA B+
  • 2021 Piccolo Brunelli ‘Ana’ Forli Chardonnay-Riesling (Emilia-Romagna): A vibrant and elegant—if understated—mix from the sub-zone foothills. $NA B
  • 2019 Piccolo Brunelli ‘Cesco 1938’ Romagna Sangiovese Predappio (Emilia-Romagna): On the shorter side, but authentically and absolutely, deliciously fresh. $NA B+
  • 2021 Villa Sandi ‘Il Fresco’ Prosecco Millesimato Rose (Veneto): Sporting levels of crowd-pleasing normally only seen at Pink concerts. $18 B+
  • 2022 Halter Ranch Vineyard Grenache Blanc (Paso Robles): Wow… Blossoms, stone fruits, and great balance! $34 A-
  • 2020 Halter Ranch Vineyard ‘CDP’ (Paso Robles): A bit woody, but there’s great fruit action that’s much more than just a bit sexy. $55 A-
  • 2020 Halter Ranch Vineyard ‘Libelle’ Picpoul Blanc Sparkling (Adelaida District): There’s a LOT to enjoy here, like citrus, biscuit, honey blossom, and peach skins. Very nice, indeed. $85 A-
  • 2022 Best’s Great Western Riesling (Great Western): Talk about a bargain; Citrus galore, with lots of lip smacking lemon drop and palate=cleansing vivacity. $29 A-
Upscale your palate! My books are available from Rockridge Press!
