82 rockin' points.
Now I'm not Alice Ferighwhatever, I don't mind the point system, but this wine kills it and 82 points seems a little, well, LAME.
Peter and I were waxing poetic (sorry for the cliche) about the pure dramatical elegance of Tenuta di Valgiano, Palistorti, 2005. It really blew us away. It was chewy, with good acidity and beautiful floral aromas. Just downright good drinking. A blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah, what's not to like people?
You can get it for $37 at Domaine 547 from my friend Jill who has a self-acknowledged knack for loving low scoring wines.
Yahoo!!!! Here's your very own chance to save the world from Parkerization!! (Or, actually, in this case from Wine Spectator.)
