Quarticello, Despina 2020
Gone are the days when word Lambrusco conjured dark thoughts. Usually in the way of some mass produced fizz with a garish label, stocked high and sold cheaply in your neighborhood convenience store. One of the areas that humanity has progressed in over the years. The Despina is old-school Emilian fizz that's intensely floral, salty and clean - seriously refreshing gear.
Partida Creus, BN 2020
BN is a fleshy little savoury delight. Aromas of hay and a touch of citrus lead you into a lightly pithy, herbaceous and fresh palate. A touch of stone fruit, gently saline, this is ultimate quaff without thinking wine.
Fora da Vigna, Pontaron 2020
Gargenega from a single plot, divided into two fermentations: one which undergoes 6 days maceration and the remainder directly pressed. The result is broad expression of waxy yellow fruit, punctuated by minerality and a little green note that drifts through.
La Vrille et le Papillon, Le Canon de Achille 2020
Juicy, plump, with just a little vegetal crunch that goes the extra mile of deliciousness. A wine we reach for over, and over, and over again, because it's seriously that delicious..
Benoit Camus, Vagabond 2020From 60 year old vines on limestone soils, Vagabond shows off its mineral edge with a racy acidity that cuts through the black and brambly fruit character. A wine of rare approachability and quality at it's price point.
Sylvain Bock, Raffut 2018
Plush and full-bodied, with plenty of details and nuanced tucked away in the rounded weight of the palate. Just a touch of structuring grip to the finish of it and with just a touch of liveliness that makes it unquestionably Sylvain's.
