Top 10 wines in the US press

21st November, 2013 by Andy Young

Loredan Gasparini Casa Bianca Prosecco, Red Newt Riesling 2012 and Veni Vidi Vici Vini Pinot Noir 2010

Loredan Gasparini Casa Bianca ProseccoIn the Washington Post, Dave McIntyre put together “two flights of wines for your Thanksgiving consideration. Each flight consists of a sparkling wine, a white and a red. The difference is price.” This flight costs less than $40. He wrote of the Prosecco: “This cheerful bubbly from northern Italy says, ‘Relax; it’s going to be okay.’ And with a few sips, you might even believe it. Alcohol by volume: 12%. Alternative: Segura Viudas Cava.”

For the Red Newt Riesling, he added: “This introductory Riesling from a top producer is often called the Circle Riesling because of the large circle on the label. It displays the lively citrus character of many Rieslings from Seneca Lake, with a moderate level of sweetness that will pair well with the sweet flavours of a Thanksgiving dinner. ABV: 11%. Alternatives: Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling and Dry Riesling.”

And finally for the Veni Vidi Vici Vini McIntyre wrote: “Decent pinot noir is almost impossible to find at $10, but this little stunner from Bulgaria hits the mark. ABV: 13%. Alternatives: Mark West (California), Cono Sur (Chile).”

    very much in the style that won the 1976 paris judgement? Pick up a book every once and awhile and learn that the block of grapes and the winemaker do not belong to ch. montelena and have not since 1976!!!
