This Week’s Tasting
The 2010 growing season in Barolo was one of the longest ever, and this combined with ideal temperatures during the evenings, gave growers the opportunity to harvest near-perfect fruit. The best wines combine the floral qualities of the 2004 vintage along with the power of 2006’s, and the firm acid structure of 2008’s. They will age for a long time, but show well now.

Deal of the Month
A blend of 50% Malvasia di Candia, 20% Malvasia del Lazio, 20% Greco & Grechetto, and 10% Trebbiano Toscano, the 2013 Principe Pallavicini Frascati Superiore ‘Poggio Verde’ is a 2015 Gambero Rosso ‘Tre Bicchieri’ (three glasses) winner—very high praise for a wine that retails for $16. This is a great wine to sip with seafood stews or oyster bisque. The wonderful aromatics remind one of citrus blossoms and white flowers. There is cleansing acidity and a lasting finish—clearly not the image most people have of Frascati!
