Critics and Staff picks
(not Eric Asimov in photo)
Eric Asimov criticizes the critic in NYT on Wednesday. He accurately points out
that a review is just the opinion of one person (including Eric.)
True. Better idea is to get personal. Shop @MetroWines where staff cards their "picks."
Find the palate that suits you and go on a wine adventure with confidence.
Let's Get Started with MetroWines Staff Picks!
*** Andy's Pick ***
Fontana Vecchia Aglianico del Taburno, $17.99
Why this one? "Because I like the combination of new world like fruit with old world earthy leathery flavors.
This Aglianico is not afraid to show some tannin which I like with food and it is a historical wine.
This is the grape that probably would have been the "premier cru" in ancient Rome.
It drinks like a combination of a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and Barolo at a third of the price.
Generally speaking what I am looking for in a "pick" is a wine that pairs
with food showing bright acidity and complexity for the price."
