The Wine Recommendations

Adega Regional Cooperative
2004 Colares

Where Colares, Portugal
Grape Malvasia
Ag Well...hard to say
SO2 Full throttle
Price$42
In this issue I’ve a few traditional wines that just are beauties even if they aren’t natural at heart. This is one. It is compellingly gorgeous. If you can find the 2004, it’s salt caramel without the sugar, all honey and nut and flowers and edge. Easier to find is the 2006. Almond and spice. This is the reason we drink wine.

Vinos Ambiz
2010 Airén Maceración Carbónica

Where Madrid, Spain
Grape Airén
Ag Organic
SO2 None added
Price$26
Fabio Bartolomei is an ex-patriot Scott who is Italian, who moved to Spain and is a nut who is a little mad genius of a hybrid. He’s happy at an outdoor gin bar in Madrid in the freezing rain, but he also can manage birthing this: peach juice masquerading as wine.
