Rosantico Moscato Rosa 2009

So I realize that we’re suppose to have canceled this producer, but in our defense we were offered this wine as consolation when the Bandol we requested was OOS and there were no complaints.

Damn was this wine an epiphany — intensely fragrant with rose petals and geranium on the nose and palate. Ripe nectarines and blood orange with some nebulous savory herbal quality too. A really special wine to pair with a really fabulous birthday girl

*not to gloss over the fact that Fulvio Bressan said some unforgivable, ignorant and hateful racist things and should be held accountable personally and professionally.

Fossati Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Been saving this as Cesare’s Barbera was transcendental and I knew the Barolo had to be at a minimum profound. My instincts were correct. The style here is classically styled but a hint of polish with such subtleties. More Robert Bressan than Jacques Tati. Just a stunning nose. Gorgeously refined, defined and perfumed cherry. Incredible mineral spine. Woodsy, salty. Just so complex. So perfumed. Flowers galore. Elite aromatics. Level of precision, refinement and vividness that is remarkable. Top top class. What a palate. Incredible fruit and so refined. My goodness this is one sexy, elegant wine. Wow. Chambolle 1er Cru like. So so pretty. Beautiful salty, cherry fruit, velvety and sweet tannins and just remarkable freshness and a 1/10th of a percent of opulence. The tannins are so sweet and refined but this does not come across as sweet due to the pointed minerality. So long. This will age decades but it is ridiculously great today. But ideally better and more integrated in 5 years. What a distinctive style here. — a year ago

Venezia Giulia IGT Merlot 2001

Yeah, look...Fulvio's got problems. But secondary market 14-year-old Merlot (which is incredible wine, by the way) was available for $20. I'll take it. — 6 years ago
