84/100

hated the guest, hated his shirt, hated his psychophantic comments, hated the fake laughter from near the camera and hated the background noise. Apart from that, Gary tried his best and for that reason it didn’t descend into the depths of a 70 point episode.

Shocking

    QOTD: The connection to culture, people, food, places, and history draws you in… but the taste is just as captivating. Awesome episode, nice guest!

    Looks like Gary might have some competition from Joe there. Better watch out if he decides to do his own blog ;). Great show as always. Love the feeling of the live shows once again. QOTD: Its an experience. By yourself, friends, loved ones, in your home, a picnic, or a restaurant. Its a special moment to celebrate, or just a Tuesday night. Its passion, love, and shock and awe. So many reasons to love and enjoy wine. Much more than just the smell and taste.

    Gary, first of all I admire your work. Now let me share my thoughts on this episode…

    ?Nebbiolo pimp as he likes to go by?? Gary you deserve a vafanculo for that?

    Your guest is an ass, a newbie who pretends to be an expert on Barolo? On Giacosa: this wine comes from the vineyards of “Castiglione DI Falletto”? hahahahaha Yeah right, a Barolo normale and he knows where the grapes are coming from? Just because it was botled by the Azienda Agricola Falletto? LOL LOL Which happens to be located in Neive (Barbaresco zone)? hahaha
    The only Giacosa vyneard in Castiglione Faletto (please, not Castiglione DI Falletto) is ?Roche di Castiglione? which Giacosa refers to as ?Le Roche? in his prestigious “Le Rocche Barolo”. The cru Falletto by the way is in Serralunga D’Alba. That crap about half and right bank just shows how newbie on Barolo he is? And how little he drunk… People should stop reading books and drink more, exactly what you do. Please don?t bring these fools to your show – you just lose credibility with that. I know that most of your public knows very little about Italian wines but it?s just too much to listen to idiots like that.
    Have you drunk many Giacosa before? Yahhh Not many? well I have many but they are difficult to find? hahaha what a testa di cazzo?
    By the way, can?t you fucking pronounce GIACOSA corrently for Christ?s sake????
    Keep up the good work man.

    I enjoyed this show and the guest..but I must jump in and add that searing a steak has nothing to do with keeping in juices. Along with the info. from the last comment, this guy seems to like to bs.

    What a pretentious bullshitter! This is what makes drinking wine bad…………….

    And wtf with that douchebag shirt?

  • looper1313

    This guy is the biggest douche ever. Were is the clips show where people try to impersonate Gary?
    He dows seem to have a good palate, but the problem is that in order to know his opinion, he has to open his mouth and speak.
    About half of the way through this episode, I watrted to think… Is Gary really an impersonation of this guy? He goes through the whole thing, sounding exactly like GV would, and doesn't even acknowledge that he is doing a direct imitation…>???

    GV, this guy just took your style and your name, and smeared it across the concrete.
    How could you let a guy on your show that is going to do an imitation of you?

  • WesMcAllister

    Joe G I think you were a great guest. Reading threw these last comments I think they are way off base. One guy comments on how you need to read less and drink more??? I guess for me it is a lot easier to read about a 42 Chavel Blanc then drink one. Come on guys we are talking about 100 dollar wines here. So why is it so bad to have a little book knowledge to help out. I know it is not the same as tasting knowledge but NO one is an expert of every region and even if you are drinking a bottle a night that is only 365 wines a year which gives you what maybe 30 wines per country which is many countries gives you one wine per region.

    I love people calling him a snob because he has tried to learn a few things and then ripping him for it. I think a wine snob is someone who makes fun of what other people do not know. Joe G did not come on as a Italian wine expert. I bet his wine knowledge of Canadian Niagara Wines would blow all of you out of the water.

    Thanks for doing the show Joe G.

    QOTD: I got into wine b/c I knew the ladies would like it.

  • jamjo

    WOW ..the Douche tag is a fine line. Shirt douche yes …but Joe drinks some juice and can recite text and he has passion. I would tip a few glasses with Joe.

  • Anonymous

    Have not tried these wines..Joe G knows his wines..too bad he did not show his white shoes.. QOTD-because every bottle is different and unique and that’s magic. http://www.winelx.com

  • John__J

    Qotd: for pretty much the same reason

  • Nick
