My summer houseguests have enjoyed a lovely glass (or 2!) of this @therapyvineyards 2015 Fume Blanc, Artist Series.
I designed the wine label, and this was a fun little side project for me a couple years ago. Fume Blanc means "white smoke" and so that was the theme. I think it turned out well ( if I do say so myself !)
Wine of the day
Villa Righetti Valpolicella Ripasso 2015
The Luigi Righetti winery is located in Valgatara in the hearth of Valpolicella Classico district in the Veneto region of north Italy. Founded in 1909 this small family run winery has earned reputation as an outstanding winemaker that produces quality wines of very good value.
Their wines sports an exeptional balance in regard to alcohol, fruitness, ageing and acidity, providing wines with good ageing potential.
This Ripasso is intense on the nose with a bouquet of dried berries, chocolate, pepper and vanilla.
Complex and balanced with mature and round tannins. It needs to be opened well in advance to get the best out of it.
Deep ruby red, complex with round mellow tannins and a somewhat fruity finish.
Intense on the nose with hints of leather, dark chocolate, dried fruits, pepper and vanilla
We had this wine today with baked salmon in papillotte, sauteed king crab and fettucine covered with a sweet bell pepper cream sauce.
Important to open at least an hour in advance for full appreciation

Após um dia de muito trabalho, eis que chego em casa e escolho um Pinot Noir da querida Lizete para tomar ❤ (desculpem pela bagunça, foi um dia corrido MESMO!) 😧
Aliás, este ano ela estará no #Naturebas2018 em São Paulo no dia 4 de agosto com seus vinhos e é claro que eu vou estar na feira, pois não perco por nada!
Uma por que eu amo vinhos naturais e outra por que é meu aniversário e pós feira irei comemorar com os amigos do @vinhobrazuca 😍🎈🍰
Agora voltando ao vinho, haha.. 🍷😆 Pinot Noir de vinificação natural, elaborado em Monte Belo do Sul (aqui no ladinho de Bento Gonçalves), aromático, frutado, ótima acidez e taninos tão lindos quanto meu amor pelos vinhos da Lili ❤🍷
Heey, caso tu ainda não garantiu tua vaga na feira, corre que já está no último lote 😧
🍇 Pinot Noir

That time when we stayed at the Notel and took the liberty to do a photoshoot (you know we can then justify our stay because...content 😂). If you haven’t stayed there... it’s gotta be on your experiences bucket list ✔️ #notelmelbourne#notel#pinotnoir#feeling6ft6
The feeling when you see a simple wine label at the Lidl and Lady Gaga starts singing in your head that
All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Pour your heart out
Watch your blues turn gold
All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Keep it real cold
'Cause it's a fired-up world.
It's priceless. 🎤🎶💳 #music#ladygaga#pinotgrigio#wine#winelabel#earworm#stuckinmyhead
Ripe sweet wild strawberries and cherry, forest floor, spices. Pine needles. Pencil shavings, game. Fragrant, deep with GC finesse.
I'm surprised how this wine has developed over the year after the last time I tasted it. Reached its full maturity.
SE facing own vineyards, 40 yrs old vines. 10-12 mo oak maturation. 15% new oak.
2008 is fine acidity driven vintage. Don't wait, can drink now. Best wines are still maturing. 🏅 Rating: 92+/100
