92 Points, Vinous – 91 Points, Wine Spectator
Feudo Montoni has been one of the best producers in Italy for literally hundreds of years, most notably for their work with Nero D’Avola grape in Sicily. It’s a gorgeous expression at such a good price. The 2020 “Lagnusa” is the perfect pizza or Thanksgiving wine with juicy black fruits, grippy tannins and a wonderful, fresh and herbaceous finish. Vinous Media gave the wine 92 points and raved, calling it “remarkably fresh yet long, leaving the mouth watering while still resonating on hints of blackberry.” You’re going to love this.
One of my favorite places to look for great Tuesday nighters are the sandy, limestone-laden hills of Asti. Although it is better known for the Moscato, Grignolino should be its calling card because in almost no places of the world does it thrive like it does here. Gianni Doglia naturally farms a tiny estate in the picturesque hamlet of Castagnole Lanze. His Grignolino is the product of 50+ year old vines, vinfied without oak to preserve its incredible fruit. Light in color to the core, bright and wonderfully aromatic, this is food-friendly red wine that can double just as well all on its own.

Their Brut Rose Cava is outrageously good- no doubt a product of the limestone-rich soils that work so well with the Trepat grape used for the wine. It’s got a great floral nose along with wild red berries and a powerful and refreshing crispness from sip one with fresh citrus fruit and dry, tiny bubbles that gives this a great viscosity. If you’re a sparkling Rose drinker, this one deserves your attention for sure.
The 2021 is bursting at the seams – a brooding, powerful Red Blend with raspberry, blackberry, vanilla and cranberry flavors on the attack that mesh with a hint of vanilla, and some well integrated sweet oak notes. It’s so silky smooth and inviting with pristine fruit – a mass appeal wine that is sure to be the talk of any table.
