Sippin' Pretty

Tried these wines recently and was pumped. All reasonably priced and very tasty. Trackem down and enjoy :)

Sebella, Chardonnay, 2007
Sonoma Valley, California
Grown, produced, and bottled at the winery by Hanzel Vineyards
- bright, nice acid and subtle oak, a very drinkable new world chard that brings some complexity to the table

Castello Romitorio, Rosso di Montalcino, 2007
Montalcino, Italy
- an artist buys a winery and what do you get? a gorgeous label and a beautiful wine. roses, red fruits, potpourri, low alcohol and tannin, integrated acidity...baby brunello...classic italiano

Triton, Prieto Picudo (Old Vines), 2008
Castilla y Leon, Spain
- those old vines make for a very concentrated wine, lovely. dark fruits, licorice, chocolate, and baking spices, french oak adds another layer to what sounds like candy juice. it's not though, just dense and delightful
