Castello Di Neive Barbaresco 2013  

Piedmont, Italy

Lots of acidity and tannin in this full-bodied northern Italian red wine. A vibrant red wine that still needs cellar time to smooth out the tannins. Lots of racy acidity on the palate for tomato sauce dishes and grilled meats. Decant 1-2 hours. Good value.

Paparuda Feteasca Regala 2015   


Crisp with lemon and grapefruit and lots of acidity and a slight spritz. Off-dry with some peach sweetness. The Paparuda is an ancient Romanian rain ritual performed either in the spring or in times of severe drought. Wearing a skirt of knitted vines, a dancing girl is accompanied by singing, shouting locals intent on securing fertility for the season.
