I Sodi del Paretaio Riserva Chianti Sangiovese

Pretty classic - some funk on the nose, cherry, tomato, dried herbs. Well integrated tannins. Good with homemade za. — 10 months ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

This is precise and nicely done for a bargain-priced Barbaresco. Nose, with air, shows very pure dark cherry fruit, a bit of rose petal, smoky crushed rock and gravel, and some spice notes. It’s concentrated, chiseled, and fairly full in the mouth. Loads of dried cherry and stone flavors. Significant but soft tannin, and good acids. Enjoyable now but will likely get better over the next several years. — a year ago

@Daniel Bloom - I did some investigation. The back label uses an alphanumeric code (which the Italian government assigns each winery) for the winery that bottled it: CN 9568. That is the same code that appears on Garagiste’s “Ca’ Rozzeria” private label for Barolo and Barbaresco offerings. Those offerings in the past have borne a cork stamped with the Icardi winery logo. So I’m betting “BorgoBadia” is a second or alternative label of Icardi.

Nice sleuthing, Tom. I've enjoyed a number of the Ca'Rozzeria Piedmont offers, though I would generally recognize them to be delicate and not particularly perfumed.

Badia A Passignano Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Deep Ruby color with aromas of red/black fruits, floral and smoky oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and plum flavors with garden herb notes, cacao, tobacco and toasty notes from 18 months of oak aging. Fine ripe tannins you can bite into, long finish ending with fruit and an earthy smoky spice character. Nice! Will age! — 2 months ago

Commune Di Nieve Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

N: Iron, sanguine, cherries, strawberries, bark, the forest.
P: Much much better than I thought it might be. Rainier cherries, bright acids, linear, medium weight body, nice slightly grippy finish.
Did this a disservice with a PnP before burgers…but wow.
Unfurling should be great.
Turns out, this is Starderi fruit.
As it airs, tar and rose come fore, more grip.
Thanks @garagiste
