Brunello Di Montalcino Comes To New York

Brunello Di Montalcino Comes To New York

Brian Freedman Contributor Spirits I cover wine, spirits, travel, and food, and consult on wine. Follow me on social media @FDTreport Brunello di Montalcino isn’t just one of the most important and long-lived wines in all of Italy—though it’s certainly more than earned that status. The town of Montalcino itself, and the almost overwhelmingly beautiful part of Tuscany in which it’s located, have also become increasingly important destinations for visitors to the region. ...

GREAT VALUE WINE: SUPER TUSCANS UNDER $30

GREAT VALUE WINE: SUPER TUSCANS UNDER $30

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 12 Tasting Notes The phrase “Super Tuscan” was coined when some wineries from the famed Italian region ignored the tight restrictions of the DOC laws yet still managed to produce top wines with outlawed grape varieties, making even the best Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino producers shudder. This was a time when tradition collided fiercely with innovation in the 1970s in Italy. Today, Super Tuscan wines include some of the most formidable names recognized worldwide. They are expensive but often worth every penny. But there are of course many affordable “Super Tuscans” too. Those are...

7 of the Best Sparkling Rosés for 2021

7 of the Best Sparkling Rosés for 2021

words: KEITH BEAVERS illustration: ARIELA BASSON       The spectrum of pink in wine shops this time of year is often a sight to see. Which one do you choose? VinePair recently released our top 25 rosés list to help narrow down your search for the best still pink wines. But what about sparkling rosé? As pink wine rose to the top of American minds over the past decade or so and the world began making rosé wine out of every grape imaginable, sparkling rosé is still waiting for its moment. But while there may not be a wall of pink bubbles in wine shops (as...

11 Italian White Wines That Prove You Should Be Drinking From the Boot This Summer

11 Italian White Wines That Prove You Should Be Drinking From the Boot This Summer

Move over, rosé. By SARA L. SCHNEIDER  Every communique on great Italian wines kicks off with a litany of reds: Piedmont’s Barolo and Barbaresco, Tuscany’s Chianti Classico Riserva and Brunello di Montalcino and so on. While I’m happy to stipulate that those bottles deserve icon status, they do suck the oxygen out of the room for another noteworthy cache of Italian wines—the country’s exciting whites. Made from a myriad of broadly unfamiliar indigenous varieties, as well as international knowns like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, the whites in this powerhouse of a wine country offer a taste adventure without the usual reference points. Audrey Frick, Italian wine reviewer...

Alsace Riesling–The Best in the World (or at least close)

Alsace Riesling–The Best in the World (or at least close)

Posted on April 29, 2021 by the drunken cyclist There are countless decisions that I made in my life that I would like to have back. In 7th grade I left my bike unattended (or locked) outside a store; the time I jumped over the fence at the Acropolis in Athens, frustrated that it was closed to the public the day I was there; and the, well, the hair style I sported for most of high school. The bike was stolen; I soon was looking down the barrel of a Greek policeman’s gun; and, well, it was a mullet. I could go on, but...

Ginger, Shrimp and Citrus Showcase Hawaii’s Multicultural Food Heritage

Ginger, Shrimp and Citrus Showcase Hawaii’s Multicultural Food Heritage

BY NILS BERNSTEIN Shrimp Kinilaw / Photo by Jenny Huang Food Styling: Michelle Gatton In Cook Real Hawai’i, Sheldon Simeon intertwines traditional Hawaiian recipes with the state’s contemporary, multicultural fare to tell the story of the eclectic cuisine enjoyed throughout the islands. This version of kinilaw, a dish with origins in the Philippines, is modeled after one he would eat with his grandparents while growing up in Hilo, Hawaii, which was made with tiny freshwater shrimp known to leap from mountain streams. While he recommends using whole shrimp and sucking the juices out of the heads as you eat, you can use headless shrimp if you...

The 25 Best Rosé Wines of 2021

The 25 Best Rosé Wines of 2021

With its blush hue and easy-drinking palate, rosé is a warm-weather staple with undeniable appeal. Between 2016 and 2020, the increasingly popular category saw a 281 percent increase in sales — and has gone from beach bag essential to mainstay on serious wine lists. That’s because the rosés on wine shop shelves are no longer the saccharine pinks of generations past. Today, options on the American market are vast, with profiles from floral and fresh, to earthy and herbaceous. And we’re no longer relying on Provence to provide us with top tier rosés, either. This year, many of the bottles that impressed...

The State Of Tuscany’s Brunello Di Montalcino And The 2016 Vintage

The State Of Tuscany’s Brunello Di Montalcino And The 2016 Vintage

John Mariani Contributor Dining I cover the world’s best hotels, restaurants and wine. A few weeks ago I wrote that Italian wine laws, which began in 1966 to make sense of all the grapes and regions of the country, had become so suspiciously generous in awarding the highest appellation of DOCG (denominazione di origine controllata garantita), guaranteeing the wine in the bottle was among the finest in its region, that it has become almost meaningless as a guide. I noted that DOCG started out with only five wines, among which was Tuscany’s Brunello di Montalcino, at a time when there...
