Bricco Visette Monforte d'Alba Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

Extra point for value. Approachable on opening with moderate tannins. Best after 2+ Hours of slow-ox where it opened up nicely. Garnet color with dense rose petal nose. Raspberry, currant and spice and mild graphite mineral on the palate. Smooth moderate well balanced acidity and tannins throughout a lingering finish. — 19 days ago

Riserva Vernaccia di Oristano 1979

Lyle Fass
9.7

Oldest one I’ve ever had. Dizzying and complex nose that defies its age. Mandarin orange that has slight torrefaction. Unreal caramel, bitter sweet cocoa, elegant and constantly unfurling. The citrus fruit is crazy on the nose. Wonderful airiness. Minerals galore. Ocean breeze. Unreal complexity and so graceful. Wow. 9.8 nose. Just insane. Complex and concentrated with wake you up acidity and just lovely salty/caramel freshness. Elegant and refined and just so complex. Had some dental work this week and man my gums are reminding me after a sip of this. Unreal finish and coats the palate but lively and so salty. This is genius! With air the nose gets so honeyed with God’s caramel.

9.6 to 9.7 overnight. Just so elegant, refined and long. Infinite complexity. This is harmony that only comes with being 43 years old.
