Re: Stainless cookware options other than All-Clad

I've had the Hestan nanobond set for almost 2 years now. Cleaning is really easy; I also bought the Hestan cleaner which makes the pans look pretty much brand new. It's crazy how fast it heats up too, even just boiling water I can do in under two minutes (in the small pot).

Re: Amore for Amarone?

I really love the Dal Forno wines. Has anyone had any of them? Yes, one blind. Sniffed and guessed heavily overdone Aussie Shiraz: tons of alcohol and heavily overdone new oak with quite a bit of wood and toast. Tasted and still thought the same - only the amount of extraction surprised me. I was q...

I have found unexpected bliss in

Girolamo Russo Etna Rosato

and

Forlorn Hope Touriga Nacional Ukiyo Dewitt Vineyard
I also have had some bliss with the Girolamo Russo Erna Rosato. Terre Nere also makes a nice Etna Rosato.

Bibi Graetz also has a Casamatta Rosato that is good for the price.

Re: What's your 'Wonder Grape'?

I love Nerello as well. Have you tried Terre Nere's pre phylloxera? Also have been a fan of some of Benanti's Nerellos, as well as the Carricante. I haven't tried the pre-phylloxera yet, but their regular Etna Rosso is such a steal I think. I've eyed the pre-phylloxera several times but haven't pul...

Re: Tribeca lunch recommendation

I would second Locanda Verde and Del Posto, haven't been to the others. In Soho nearby there is Balthazar, which probably has one of the best steak frites. Also good selection of french wines

Re: Grassl Wine Glasses, and a few Zaltos if you need them

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to the forum and happen to be in need of some wine glasses after breaking quite a few Zaltos over the Holidays. After reading everyone's reviews, I'm really excited to try these out when they come in! (ordered a few of each glass)
