VITTORIA, Sicily — The red wines made in the vicinity of this midsize town in southeastern Sicily can be elegant and beautiful, with a crunchy freshness and a reticent austerity.

The 2015 vintage will be remembered for its dry, hot summer growing season. It will also be revered for the stellar quality fruit harvested by the VDP estates, even if overall yields were distinctly lower than in years past. Extensive manual selection, world-class vineyards and well-timed interventions paid major dividends this year, leading to frequent comparisons to the legendary 1959 and 1971 vintages.  Read more

13 years in, it's not every day that we add a new grape variety to the portfolio. But when a favorite #winemaker like Todd Blomberg tells you about the wine he's making from a variety of which only 50-odd hectares remain, you say...time to bring in some Tinto Velasco! From Castilla La Mancha, Spain, Finca la Estacada's 'Ocho y Medio' line takes its name from the altitude -- 850m up. #winegeek #grapenut #instawine #new #tintovelasco #castillalamancha #vino

" 'Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!' cries she with silent lips. 'Give me your tired, your poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

"Kickass shot of a kickass winemaker making kickass wine." - @vinittchi. Couldn't have said it better myself! (And English isn't even his first language.) Dora Forsoni and Patrizia Castiglioni of Poderi Sanguineto make Rosso and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano from estate-grown Sangiovese and some Mammolo & Canaiolo. Dora says, "I just make it the way my father did." #montepulciano #tuscany #italy @louisdressnerselections
