Sunday night, Ragù di Bolognese and fettuccine and

7202C985-9365-4EBB-B97F-F6BB553682B2.jpeg

Vino Nobile 2012 D.O.C.G. (750 ml)

Bought direct from winery 6 years ago,

Intense garnet. Inviting nose of morello cherry, plum, some refined spices and flowers., opens with a subtle fragrance of violet, red berry and licorice.

On the tongue, beautiful cherry, with light acidity and nice but nice but not overt tannins. What a delight.

OK, the wine royalty of AFF:. NAME THE VARIETY .. or even close will do. Hint: It's in its prime; first pic after opening, second near the end.

Big hint: participants in recent AFF Launceston may have a clue.

Looks very cloudy, I’ll say it’s somewhere between a tomato juice or a grapefruit juice.

Was a big trend in Europe about 6-8 years ago, Terrible cough is amber wine. Just don’t go there. It’s not wine but oxidised vinegar.

It’s been a trend in Georgia for a few thousand years 🤣 including at the Pheasants Tears winery where I first tried it. Did a few more along the way.

It's definitely 'different', like all the qvevri wines. Those who don't know the qvevri style, look it up 🙂

If you don't like mtsvane, stick with the nice tame cab sav from Dan's. 😉

When in Georgia do as the Georgians. When not, just drink proper wine. Georgians may have been some of the early origins of fermentation of grapes but this is orange wine stuff is not one of their better efforts. Other peoples discovered that protecting the ferment from oxygen gave wine instead of oxidized grape juice.:) YMMV! :)
