I keep saying that “in the interest of transparency, Huon Hooke has rated this wine….” usually followed by a low rating.
Well, here I go again. One thing is clear, when Huon doesn’t like a wine, he really doesn’t like it. He gives this wine 78 and says (his bottle at least) was bretty.
So, before promoting it, I thought I’d better try it again, so I did that last week. My conclusion is that the rating of 93+ from Gary Walsh (of The Wine Front) is spot on. That puts it in the middle of the “good wine” range. I didn’t pick up any brett, but I’m no expert although I have had enough Italian wines to know what it is!
