Another bottle of Verdicchio, the 2016 Garofoli “Podium” Verdicchio is definitely a different approach to the same grape.
A new grape for me, the 2018 Garofoli “Macrina” Verdicchio surprised me with flavour and value. Always good to find.
A $12 Chianti that didn’t leave me with a raging headache? Yeah….it actually happened.
Good value from Italy without having to get a Chianti or Pinot Grigio? Who knew? Check out why I liked the 2017 Renzo Masi Erta e China (besides the fun name).
What happens when you mix a Pinot Grigio with an oaked Chardonnay? I don’t know, but the 2017 Pagos de Galir Godello may be the closest I’ll come to knowing.
Getting to try a new grape is always fun. So what was my first experience with the Mencia grape like?
