#70 Wine of the Year, 2022 Wine Spectator Top 100
This is a total beauty drawn from old vines on different plots of 60- to 80-year-old vines on schist and slate soils in the villages of O Barco and Petín. It’s a gorgeous and sophisticated white that was fermented in 500- and 600-liter oak barrels for 10 months. Generous pear, waxy lemon and apricot notes with a creamy middle and hints of white pepper on the finish. So much to like. This is a full-bodied wine with plenty of life ahead. Only one reviewer has gotten to it and it’s already a Top 100 wine of the year. Not too shabby.
The newly released 2021 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is everything you’re looking for in a vibrant, food-friendly white wine. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white which combines delicious fruit and vibrancy with boasts a killer nose of white peach, honeycomb and almonds. The fruit is wonderfully concentrated with a salty, stony finish that goes forever. The best part of this beauty is that it’s not just a summer wine- it’s absolutely delicious year round.

Cristina Forner is a fifth generation winemaker who is trying to further the legacy of her family in Spain. The Brut Cava that she makes is simply unbeatable for the price. It’s got a ton of energy and lift from the tiny bubbles, leading with a bouquet of citrus fruits and notes of freshly baked brioche. The mouth is fun and round with great balance, harmony and structure.
It’s hard to beat a great value white wine and this one is a at least a cut above the rest. One prominant industry insider called the 2020 edition, “the best white wine by any within $20/cs of this price.” It’s super crisp with a great mineral streak, and was carefully picked by hand when the temperature is coolest and is kept cool all the way into the press. From there, the effect of the mineral soil takes over, providing great finesse and freshness in every bottle. This white blend has great backbone and a lot of juicy fruit coming through behind aromas of flowers and stone fruits. At this price, it’s a no brainer.
