Tenuta Monolo

Riserva Bramaterra Nebbiolo Blend 1997

Nose is smoky tomato. Blows off quickly. Some dried shitake mushroom.

Palate is fresh. Juicy old cherries. Big fruit. Really delicious. Kinky spices. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Very interesting.

15.5% alcohol?!?

Lets see how it goes.

2 hours in nose is pleasant heirloom tomato. Palate is darker cherries. Big. Spice. Juicy. A big wine girding for a knife fight.

Day 2 major tomato on the nose. Yucky tomato juice. Better yesterday.

Terre di Prenzano Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

This is a big Chianti Classico. Big macerated cherry fruit, iodine, old leather, gravel. Still tannic, it’s dark and intense. Wasn’t expecting this, but perfect with the intense food we’re having tonight. — 6 days ago

Big Basin Vineyards

Coastview Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

N: lots of rhubarb and faint cinnamon, some bark, woodland, some strawberries.
P: Reddish/Brown on the palate, very….cedar. Nice acidity, but very gentle. Almost funky, you want some more funk, but nooo. Red fruits down the middle, lovely mouthfeel. @ wtso bargain. You feel good about it, but it’s not gonna rock your world.
Addendum: 2nd day, kept refrigerated w rubber stopper, definite tannic development and palate interest.
I bet w much air time, these might just deliver above their price pt.
