Mitch is a native New Yorker who has travelled the world making wines. He has projects in Spain, Georgia, Australia and Italy. I met Mitch working for Mac Forbes in 2016. He did a couple of vintages for Mac previously. Mitch pops up all over the shop, he helps make wine with so many people and especially well known producers.
Regarding Italy he lamented Italians distaste or mistrust of Dolcetto. His inspiration for this wine is Vajra, Bondonio, Chionetti & Abonna who make far more lifted and fragrant versions of dolcetto.
This is an outsiders perspective of something simple, given complexity through nuance."
