  • 2013 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=1235323&id=1&___z=5rSiFOIir0zVhdHRf5rsmw%3d%3d'>2013 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino</a></b></font><br>The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a tight and tonic red wine with loads of fresh fruit and crisp acidity at the back. The wine is simple, clean and compact in structure. It would make a great pairing partner to pasta with a hearty meat sauce or breaded veal chops. It's your quintessential food wine. Altesino is an estate in dynamic motion. I had not been back in a number of years and the property has seen an impressive series of positive changes during my absence. Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini runs her historic property with deft precision and a careful eye for both aesthetics and quality. The yellow-rimmed botte in her cellar are a prime example of that feminine touch. When Elisabetta purchased the property in 2002 she had just emerged victorious from a bidding war with Château Margaux. The feisty Elisabetta who owns the adjacent Caparzo property tells me: "I just couldn't have French neighbors." Her aim in terms of winemaking is to stay true to Montalcino tradition. Because she owns vineyard parcels in the four quadrants of Montalcino, she has added blending flexibility to make the wines she wants by sourcing fruit with different ripeness from the various subzones.

  • Wine import tax: Make American Wine Great Again?
    <p>Economic policy has about as much clarity as a tank of Puligny after batonnage right now. There’s some reasonable certainty about various reforms (ahem, tax cuts) but one area that is shrouded in mystery: how imports will be taxed. Trump made trade a big issue in the campaign and has continued in the same vein, […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2017/01/10/wine-import-tax-make-american-wine-great/">Wine import tax: Make American Wine Great Again?</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
  • Wine on the wing: Emirates wine program
    <p>Apparently there’s a real rivalry among airlines for first class wine service–although you’d never guess it in the back of the bus where the wine selections are generally bad enough to drive a wine to beer. A piece in Bloomberg details how Emirates has splashed out over $40 million a year on wine for the […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2017/01/06/emirates-wine/">Wine on the wing: Emirates wine program</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
  • Clos Rougeard sold to billionaire
    <p>“Winery X, in family for generations, sold to billionaire” is a headline that would normally barely raise an eyebrow. But the winery in today’s news is Clos Rougeard from the Loire. Located in Saumur, Clos Rougeard is the Bentley of the Loire. The wines, almost all red, are expensive, rare and of exceptional quality–the kind […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2017/01/04/clos-rougeard-sold-to-billionaire/">Clos Rougeard sold to billionaire</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
