Tasting note: Goumenissa Red, Chatzivariti, 2015

Comments = This wine was a good discovery for me. There is no doubt that this is a very good wine from a very good producer. We can feel the overall quality of the wine. The structure is still there with a good body and good tannins (rounded by the time spent in bottle). My only regret is that the 2015 vintage I tasted has probably past its peak and I think that is due to some issue during the conservation in the cellar of the retailer. In any case, I have no doubt in recommending this wine which offers a very good quality and a very good value for money.

Final Grade = B+

Tasting Note: Ermacora, Pignolo, 2020

Comments = A surprisingly powerful red wine that offers a good balance tannins-aromas with a long complex finish with spicy notes. This wine is really a great occasion to discover a well-made Pignolo wine coming from its region of origin (at a reasonable price given the quality offered.

Final Grade = B+

Tasting Note: Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Obiz, 2020

Comments = with a retail price around 10 euros, this wine is a great occasion to taste the rare local grape (Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso) and discover its originality. Pay attention to the aromatics of this grape while keeping in mind that this wine has not been in contact with oak or any sort of wood. Given the price, the quality offered is top-notch.
