Marion Calto 2004 IGT

Posted by

Sometimes wine isn’t about analysis, but rather beads a direct line into the ephemeral and emotional. Sometimes wine is sensuality and emotion more than intellect. This was just such a wine – one which I too swiftly wrote off as internationally styled on my first sip, but which I could not stop drinking and which by the end of the bottle I had to acknowledge as truly original – opulent wine with soul. It does exist. Even if such wines are only truly experienced in the mists of the sensuous. Move over pleasure police, cause I’m drinking wine!

$83 at Kits Wine Cellar

NB: All Marion wines are made by Celestino Gaspari who was the wine maker at Quintarelli for 20 years and is consulting wine maker for Dal Forno.
