The Undiscovered California – 2016 Edition

The pace at which new projects pop up in California remains nearly impossible to keep up with. Once again, I was deeply impressed with a number of new projects I tasted over the last year. Most of the wineries in this article have only released a few vintages, while some are literally just getting started. This year’s Undiscovered has something for every palate; from cutting edge sparkling wines, to cool-climate Chardonnays, Pinot and Syrahs, all the way to Napa Valley Cabernets.

2010 Piazzano Chianti Riserva Rio Camerata ($20) 90 points

2010 Piazzano Chianti Riserva Rio Camerata, 90 points

The 2013 Chianti Riserva Rio Camerata is dark, deep and voluptuous, with plenty of cedar, licorice, blueberry jam and spice notes. A dollop of Colorino adds richness to the Sangiovese.
