Too much sangio in the cellar to buy this new one.

You are awesome. Thank you! (not for buying the wine ... but for being in Iraq.)

Too bad, I think it's the 18th largest brewer in the States now, but is most likely a midwest type thing. Literally started in his garage brewing homebrew and cascaded (heh) from there.

I have 345 bottles of wine sitting here. I shop at other places other than woot. I have over 90 bottles of sangiovese. Vino Noceto provides me a source of sangio unequalled in any other US winery. There are tens of thousands of wines out there I would love to try, but you can't try them all. I don't buy everything woot sells just because they sell it. It may be a good bottle of wine. There are lots of them out there. Enjoy!

I love the Noceto Sangio, so much so I've seriously contemplated their wine club and I don't do wine clubs.

Here is another question/suggestion for the community:

We should continue the tasting notes process even after the labrats have weighed in. We could post them in the original threads for the offers. That way, we could compare notes a year or two down the road when we might be pulling some from the cellars to taste. Also might give us an idea of how certain wines are aging.

Just a thought. Perhaps some folks are doing it already.

Cheers!

I've noticed that some are doing that already. If you are commenting in CT it is easy to just paste in the original thread, too. Thanks for bring it up, perhaps a few more will do this.

I've visited there a half dozen times or more. It's not a regular club- Little Nuts is an annual case of sangio. Big Nuts is that plus a half mixed case of higher end stuff six months later. It's not the monthly/bimonthly trickle.

I bought 1 Monday morning and I shouldn't have because my wallet was screaming.
But now I've read the labrat reports and am thinking this may be the perfect wine for me and want more. But now my wallet's screaming out in pain even louder. Think I'll just stick with my first order!

ah, but if you check out the 71/22/8 percentage by day, we need to just about match yesterday's sales today, which is only just over double today's current running total... and history has shown that the sales trend decreases sharply from the initial frenzy down to a trickle, yet picks up significantly when the bouncing starts. I expect this to sell out before 4pm Eastern.

Maybe I missed it in all the chatter (and, holy cow, there is a lot of it this week), but do we know who made this wine? I recall some speculation early on, but I do not remember seeing anything definitive.

Seeing as how the blend is Similiar to the Toothy and the Location is the same, we're guessing it's Lucas and Llewelyn like the Toothy. Which is fine for me as they're my Cheap But Good goto wines.

for Woot Cellars, we don't usually find out until after it's over, sometimes without confirmation for months. Given the fact that it was released so close to the Toothstein, with primarily the same grape, the same vintage, and same location (city on the bottle), it's a near lock that this is also L&L.

Edit: damn too slow... this is why I typically don't respond to questions, someone's always faster than me!

Boys. Always trying to impress with their toys

Sniff ... and comment to self that I'm being infatuated. Check the inside of the neck for schwag.


Sounds like a strange mating ritual to me.


Now that I've dicked around ...for 5-10 minutes, it's had a chance to open up a bit and ready for some serious schnoz action.


Foreplay will usually do this

I'm getting a lot of musty/woody aromas (socks?)... While it is fairly aromatic, it's got a pretty one-dimensional nose and doesn't do a lot to wow me.


Non-wine speaking - I think this would completely turn me off!

After all this work, I'm now hella thirsty! Time to guzzle wine!


well you should be if you really worked at it!

I take another sniff and decide that there's some kinda Tootsie-roll or molasses thing goin' on in the back ground. Beaming with pride at having pulled that out of my ass, I taste. Take a bit in, gently caress it around in my mouth, roll it around on my tongue ...


totally kinky and not my cup of tea. and, may I add, very strange.

Here I really just to figure out what's going on and what I want to pay attention to.


seems like you should have figured this out alerady . especially before the ass part!

Second taste I pay a lot more attention to what's going on. How does it feel? What's going on? Does it start off with a bang? What seems to happen between the instant you take ... in through the 10 seconds or so you move it around your mouth, to the instant you swallow, to what's left afterwards, how long it lasts, and if that finish continues to evolve new flavors...


I lost track, is this a he or a she?


Now onto the BS portion of the show.


shouldn't this be at the beginning? the impression part along with the toys..

Aging potential?


hope you're not going there too soon in the relationship

Hope this doesn't push too far on the tastefulness scale. it's just what was going on inside my head as I read Corrado's otherwise informative narrative!

So 10 of us decided to try out labrat bottle last night. YUMMY!!! Althought light on the palate, it was jam-packed with fruit. Definitely a nice sipping wine, or one that pairs nicely with light fair food...perfect for turkey! Being more than 50% Sang, I would have thought it packed a bigger punch, but it meshed well with the Cab and Merlot. About 1/2 of the people tasting were "new" to the red wine scene...and absolutely loved it! I am glad I personally stocked up on this one!
I recommend it for all occasions...another WOOT hit!


608 bottles wooted and counting...along with every cheese, balsamic, oil and now meat woot!

I rarely buy woot wines any more, but for the first few years, I bought more than I passed on, and the result is my cellar is loaded with woot wines, including plenty of Noceto. But the woot cellars wines have been uniformly very good with exceptional QPR.

I have no interest in changing your mind, but IMO there is always room in one's cellar, or room on one's gift list for a $10 bottle of wine that drinks like a $20 bottle.

Meant to chime in earlier, then was going to bring EHP to game night and refresh my memory first and get more opinions. Unfortunately none of that happened. I remember really liking the wine at Vegas. Honestly can't remember the nose not that I'm great with that anyway, bright fruit (strawberries and cranberries), smooth, long finish. Very drinkable and yummy enough to refresh our palates after like 20 other wines (yeah, I know some of you powered ahead and probably finished all 30+ by then :P).

I'd been contemplating this for the past couple of days, mainly because I have to drive from Boston up to NH to get any wine I order. Decided to go in for two.

With the judge's decision here in MA last week, hopefully woot will be able to ship directly to me soon!

I'm hoping this lives up to the Wellington 4 pack I got around this time last year. That stuff brought me into the wine scene, especially the Syrah (Which, incidentally, I ended up buying another half case of direct from Wellington!)
