A full-bodied red. It paired well with a sausage meal, but would go well with pasta too. — 5 days ago

Cursalet Dolcetto di Dogliani 2019

Lyle Fass
9.3

I adore this Dolcetto. Nose is blackberries, leather, blueberries and smoke. Super aromatic. Layered and so pure. Just terrific. Palate is a masterful blend of ripe blackberry fruit that is super juicy and just bursting with tiny berry fruit intensity and so much flavor but backed by a strong mineral component. Not a better Dolcetto for the money. Remarkable wine. Can age for a decade. — 3 days ago

Domenico Clerico

Percristina Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Notes of vanilla oak, chocolate, ripe cherry and roses. Same on the medium weight palate palate with those grainy persistent tannins. Oak on Barolo doesn’t seem right but it is nice, hint of menthol. Reminiscent of fruit and nut milk chocolate - a personal favourite. Some astringency to finish off. One of the 1001 wines - bought this in Alba, Piedmont about 8 years ago. Clerico believes that prudent use of new oak can round out Barolo’s harsh edges and enhance the flavour profile. After a few hours in the decanter the tannins became typically Barolo - powdery fine and persistent. Galloni said that Percristina is the only Barolo still made with 100% new oak and is now taking a direction that increasingly stands apart from the other Baroli here. — 5 days ago

Just looked up your 1999. Time is on your side with the Drinking Window I read being 2010 to 2025.

Thanks. For a guy with too much wine, long drinking windows are my friend.

Grignolino d'Asti 2020

Cranberry, strawberry, plum. Light and fruit forward. Great with a chill. “Chillable reds” are a heavily trending category in New York wine retail right now, for those in the industry. — a month ago
