Well made Chianti with the traditional style. Decant well or let it sleep for a few years. Steal at 13€.

Balanced, tight and fresh Barolo. Not giving lots of drinking pleasure right now.

This is very refreshing and skillfully made white. Not a big fan of sauvignon, thus score might be too low.

This might be one of my favorite wines in the price point of 10€. Medium bodied, fresh, balanced with high acidity and slight bitterness. Top notch food wine with tomato based dishes such as pizza, lasagne and bologne sauce with minced beef. Buy several if you see this perfumed Dolcetto and like the grape.

This tasty Pinot Noir has lovely aromatics and impressive lenght. Was even better on the second day. Rebuy for sure at about 20€.

This medium bodied Barolo is balanced, perfumed and showed a very good lenght. A bit tannic still but I found this drinking well.

This is complex and food friendly Rioja for very affordable price. Not for the friends of fruit bombs.

Very nice Chianti considering a weak vintage but I recommend to invest your money on 2012s and 2013s instead.

This bottle was a bit unbalanced. I wonder if it needed more air. Some heat in the finish.

My favorite Xinomavro until today. Light to medium bodied, fresh and balanced with some complexities. A tremendous value.

Enjoyable Assyrtiko with beautiful fruits. Perhaps lacks a bit minerality and elegance I was expecting from this variety originated from Santorini.

This has a bit too much everything. Did not find typical flavor or nose of the variety. Maybe needs time to open up.

My first Robola from Kefalonia and very delighted to see so fresh and balanced white. Delicious and slightly mineral. Very good value at 10€. Worth seeking out.

This a charming medium bodied red with a mix of dark and red berries, cherries, flowers and earth. Fresh and slightly peppery with good lenght. This reminds of Gamay, Syrah and Pinot Noir with a bit riper fruit. So delicious.

Very interesting Greek variety, Xinomavro. Like drinking Gevrey Chambertin added with tannic structure of young Nebbiolo. A beautiful young wine.
