A wee BloodyPulpit:

  1. Never done did had this wine before. Comes from the Santo Stefano del Sol vnyd. Classic SS ferment.

Ha! Damned with faint praise!

Uhhhh, Marcus…surely you recognize a TomHill troll by now???
There’s not much Fiano grown in Calif. The Unti is pretty decent…but just that. In terms of sheer enjoyment,
I would rank the Ryme right up there at the top. But it’s a whole lot different rendition of Fiano than
is this Radici.
