Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For November 14, 2016

Vinted on November 14, 2016 binned in wine mini-reviews

So, like, what is this stuff, anyway?
I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes with you via twitter (limited to 140 characters). They are meant to be quirky, fun, and easily-digestible reviews of currently available wines. Below is a wrap-up of those twitter wine reviews from the past week (click here for the skinny on how to read them), along with links to help you find these wines, so that you can try them for yourself. Cheers!

  • NV Quinta de la Rosa Lote 601 Ruby Port (Porto): Do you want to go out & make some new friends? Because this Ruby *totally* wants to. $20 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 10 Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione (Tuscany): Complex, for sure, but feels pushed a little bit too far. $50 B+ >>find this wine<<
  • 13 Fattoria Viticcio Monile Toscana Rosso (Toscana): Bordeaux goes on vacation in Italy; the Tuscan sun seems to suit its disposition $57 A- >>find this wine<<
