2007 Fattoria Rodano Poggialupi Toscana

Posted on October 30, 2009 - Filed Under Italian wines, Red wines, Reviews, Wine Reviews, region, style | Leave a Comment

This wine kicked some serious ass. The great earthy, vegetative quality that I love in Italians, but with a very nice backbone of mocha and dark cherry. For under $17, I highly recommend.

Get this while you can @ Westwood Liquors.

2004 Arceno Primavoce Toscana

This super-tuscan for $14.99 is a killer deal. Great earthiness, bright fruit, soil, and vine.

It’s a very enjoyable entry-level Italian, with enough oomph to impress your burliest of New World drinkers. Recommended!

2003 Dolcetto D’Alba

I don’t know what the fuck this wine is, but I know its from Italy. It starts off a little bitter, like it could use a good cheese, but the fruity almond finish is like nothing I’ve ever had. Who knew?
