TN: One & two

[verdejo]Sanz “Villa Narcisa” 2004 Rueda Verdejo (Castilla & León) – Grassy, limestone-dusted grapefruit from a quarry-side orchard, with briny acridity and a sharpening finish. Interesting. (9/06)

Alcohol: 13%. Closure: cork. Importer: Tedward. Web:

Forsoni “Poderi Sanguineto I e II” 2004 Rosso di Montepulciano (Tuscany) – Strawberries and old roses with a gentle, enticing earthiness and a nice little nip of acidity. This wine is the opposite of explosive or concentrated, and yet in its own soft-spoken way it is very nearly perfect. (9/06)

Prugnolo gentile (a/k/a sangiovese), canaiolo nero & mammolo. Alcohol: 13.5%. Closure: cork. Importer: Adonna. Web:
