89/100
Line of the day – ‘punch me in the neck’

Classic Gary and well worth watching but not a 90 pointer as the whole thing was a bit rushed…probably due to the appointment GV had after the show.

    Hey Gary- I’ve been to that area- excellent wines. One thing- Montelcino is a town not far from Montepulciano but they are different. The wines are from Montelpuciano, you kept saying Montelcino. I bought one of those recently, can’t wait to try it!

    QOTD: Love ‘em. A visit to Poliziano during the excellent 2004 harvest was the moment the my life became completely wine-obsessed. I recently had a bottle of the 04 Asinone which completely blew me away. I haven’t had the DEI ’04, but was disappointed to hear you didn’t like it after I’d had great experiences with the ’01

    Cheers!!

    Interesting…..Mid pallet comment.

    I’d like to see a show; with a wine, that you know gives a fantastic mid pallet; vs one you know is abscent a mid pallet. Because I’m not sure I get the whole mid pallet tasting evaluation deal.

    I’ve been serioulsy trying many many different wines since first watching you in 2006. I definitely would not have done prior to this show.

    It is called “vino nobile di MONTEPULCIANO” not “vino nobile di MONTALCINO”, AS Gary Vaynerchuk continuosly call it!!!!

    Say it with me now Gary, MON-TE-PUL-CI-AN-O.

    QOTD: I went to MontePULCIano a few months ago and it was a really gorgeous town. The Vino Nobiles are very tasty but Rosso di Montepulcianos are also a great value. Good flavor profiles at a very attractive price point- 12 or so bones.
