Italian Wine Blog – Competition

Ciao Chianti Clinkers,

Competition time! I’m giving away a case of Italian Wine to anybody, with or without a blog, who can provide me with the most ridiculous or humorous Italian wine tasting note.

I’m a generous blog person and so a mixed case of Italian wine will go to the absolute best note, judged by me and the winner will be posted here 3 weeks from today. Sadly this is only open to people who read this blog in the UK and Europe as I can’t send wine to the USA without getting busted.

I’ll also review the wine here to see if the note actually carrys any validity so please, no really old Italian wines! The wine will be provided by The Cellar Door – check them out.

The tasting note can be on any Italian wine, Barolo, Primitivo, Brunello, Chianti, Soave, Pinot Grigio whatever, but I prefer big reds and as I have to drink the wine, well, I’m not saying anything more! EYES LEFT! j/k

Send your entries to and mark the heading “Competition Italian Tasting Note”.

Tomorrow’s blog hasn’t been decided yet but Saturdays is the long awaited (by me anyway) review of bizarros…. Lazio Pinot Noirs, Cabs etc. This is going to be seriously interesting. Did you know all Lazio’s D.O.C’s are for white wine! Does anyone know why? Seems perfect for Reds to me!
