Lapideus Umbria Bianco Trebbiano 2016

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course of a few hours. The 2016 Lapideus was made using whole cluster Trebbiano Spoletino from old vines grown in a slightly cooler climate than “Arboreus”. This vintage of Lapideus saw a 24-day maceration and rested on its lees without temperature control for 149 days. This special ambrosia pours a slightly turbid, deep golden color. Funky fresh with a melange of dried apricots, dried mango, some membrillo and some dried orange. Bracing acidity but everything is very much in balance! A very compelling body and lovely finish that is, all in all, quite becoming. This is in a great spot and I would say drink now though there isn’t a huge rush either. Mother Nature didn’t do Giampiero any favors in 2016 and as a result, production was seriously low; only 798 bottles were made. Selfishly, I’m very happy he put in the effort. Bottle No. 517. — 14 days ago

Passito Sagrantino di Montefalco 2007

2007. I love Bea very much, so much so I drank both my cellars out of it. Been wanting to try this passito forever and tonight was the time. Awesome dessert wine with great balance of sweet, funk, and acid. — 8 days ago

Bric dël Fiasc Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Rich, elegant, smoky, anise notes, ripe black fruits, medium + body, lingers with supple tanins that reach out and grip here and there. Wish the bottle was larger.

Enjoyed with a Dijon Rosemary crusted rack of lamb. Perfect.
