Have we no wine? WSET 3 with Merit
I should have expected this: the 2013 vintage is great, but not drinking as well as the 2012, 2010, or 2008 vintages. And I love bright wines... this one’s pH is 3.11 according to Galloni. Needs a few more years for the acid to harmonize with the relatively heavy new oak flavors. — 20 days ago
RIP. Way past it’s prime... sadly.
My fault entirely... this one hid deep in the cellar. — 2 days ago
Fantastic Barbaresco from the stellar 2010 vintage. My bottle had seen a little heat stress at some point, but this didn’t seem to diminish the wine. Some darker/richer sour cherry notes, balanced acidity, integrated tannins, beautiful floral notes, cola nut. Fine to open and enjoy now... better with a little air. — 18 days ago
Pale electric purple, plenty of acid and grip. Savory components plus sage and lavender, rhubarb, white pepper. Perfect with Kuby’s sausages and grilled root veggies. Nothing overripe here. — 6 days ago
A massive Ravera... rich without too much oak, ample tannins, darker fruits. Even though this is a 2013, it needs some time in the cellar. Update: Drinking even better on Day 2. This is a blockbuster Barolo. Can I save any for Day 3? — 23 days ago
