Tre Bicchieri San Francisco 2016 Taste – James Melendez

IMG_8584IMG_8533

I wish I could have tasted all of the wines at this year’s edition of Tre Bicchieri San Francisco.   I arrived towards the beginning but it is hard to taste everything–sometimes getting time to taste even a few I count myself lucky.   Tre Biccheri is important for me to seek out all Italian wine regions and often I get to taste from regions I rarely taste from.   I was able to taste a Syrah from Valle d’Aosta by Rosset which was so unexpectedly dynamic and I will seek this wine out.  When I look at Italy often I don’t want an international variety but if I overlooked this wine I would have missed a spectacular wine.  I also looked at Italian whites I rarely taste Vernacchia and Pecorino and it is a reminder to me to seek them.

I did taste the following wines where I have listed vintage and point score that I assigned to all that I tasted:
