Top 10 wines in the US press

Eric Asimov picks out a wine that is “beautifully balanced and lovely to drink” while Dave McIntyre recommends a rosé that “will command your attention and will reward it, as well.”

US PressIn the New York Times, Asimov wrote: “The vast ocean of wine that is Italy is fed by many rivers. Sangiovese and Nebbiolo, universally considered to be among the world’s great grapes, pour in to acclaim.

“One of my favourites is a red grape that seems largely taken for granted, when it’s thought of at all. It stirs little excitement. I’m not sure why, because I find the wines delicious, structured and age-worthy.

“I’m talking about Aglianico, the primary red grape of Campania, which encompasses Naples and Salerno on the western coast of southern Italy, and of Basilicata, the arch and instep of the boot. Aglianico has been termed the Barolo of the South, a seemingly admiring phrase made hollow by a patronising note.”

In the Washington Post, McIntyre picked out five rosés for his readers to try, writing: “Here are selections from France, Austria, California and Washington that will slake your thirst this summer.”
