If you're fascinated with Supertuscans and other Italian wines that lean heavily on Bordeaux grapes and styles of winemaking, check out the first of the two reports originally written, in Italian, by our friend Giampiero Nadali (alias Aristide) of Verona. I translated it and again want to point it out to you, just in case you missed it the first time. (By the way, the man in this photo is the celebrity winemaker Giacomo Tachis, who is credited with establishing the Supertuscan style with prestige brands like Sassicaia and Tignanello.) I posted Aristide's second article (in English) just the other day. It covers the tasting of a wide range (137) of Bordeaux-style wines from all over Italy. I am pointing the articles out to you so that they'll be at the top of your screen when you come to Mondosapore. Interesting articles--informative and thought-provoking. Thank you, Giampiero.
