- Viña do Avó 2011. Antonio Cajide Gulín. DO Ribeiro (6-7 EUR)
Epitome of what I look for and use to find in red wines from Galicia: Freshness, freshness and freshness.
- Lecea Blanco 2012. DOC Rioja (4,05 EUR)
It looked flabby once it’s uncorked, but it was just lazy. Just some hours breathing to show a so honest viura. More!
- Ambiz Malvar Maceración Carbónica de Tinaja. Vinos Ambiz (6 EUR)
How good has evolved this wine during these few months! Deeper, longer, wider; more and better in every aspect. More!
- El Aprendiz 2012. Bodegas y Viñedos del Páramo. DO Tierra de Leon. (5,69 EUR)
One of those wines for the table. Fresh, with herbaceous hints and everything creating a quite environment.
- Phincas 2007. David Sampedro Gil Viticultor. DOC Rioja (16.8 EUR)
The (oak) tree doesn’t allow me to see the whole forest. Maybe it needs more time to show all the good things everybody say about this wine, but at this very moment it’s too oaky for me.
- El Marciano 2012. Alfredo Maestro. Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon (8,4 EUR)
Good, but nothing else. Maybe I was so interested that it wasn’t interesting enough.
- La Dama 2005. Bodegas Aldonia. DOC Rioja
I do never remember that this wine, and Aldonia, need breath for a while once uncorked. The initial mess goes to assembled components as it breaths.
- Goyo García Viadero. Finca Viñas de Anguix 2009. DO Ribera del Duero (30 EUR aprox)
I do always ask for more in these wines (much more. Despite it’s a nice wine I ask for more nuances and complexity.
- Do Ferreiro 2011. Bodega Gerardo Méndez. DO Rías Baixas (14 EUR)
How good is for this wine to wait patiently for a year. It’s a very nice quaff from every point of view. More!
- Touraine François Chidaine 2011 (9-10 EUR)
Charming wild character. I do really love this rough wines, so light tannins, full of scrubland and brushes, acidity and a touch of bad mood.
