Archetipo Colli Tortonesi Terre di Libarna Timorasso 2021

My first Timorasso. At first a bit dainty & shy on the nose; crushed nectar pits, white flowers, some white peach & artichoke hearts. On palate very textured, like Huet Chenin, but in a parallel universe. Minerally & reserved, this feels like it could go decades more- which is my understanding it can. The aroma notes are echoed on palate, with additional quince & pale fig notes, with a very slight off dry character (overall quite dry). For about 26$ a steal— I guess it’s a hard sell, this Timarosso.. This can either run as a food wine or not, & it’s delicious. — 2 months ago

@Ceccherini Cristiano Cec, see my 2 notes on the Massa Timorasso - 2 vintages how he grubbed out his Cortese vines and planted Timorasso, essentially saving the latter and reviving the planting of the grape.

Timorasso is on my hitlist of grapes that need more attention

@Bob McDonald in that case agree on that, when the cortese is in the wrong area take it off, but when you mention the Docg Gavi i don't think there is point. Plus who knows if the timorasso might grow well there...perhaps it could be a good recommendation 😅😅.

Tettineive Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2019

Birthday dinner wine. Clay pot, dried cranberry, a little balsamic. Jared cooked ribeye, sautéed mushrooms, risotto and salad. Great pairing! Knocked it out of the park! — 3 months ago

Tettimorra Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Absolutely a knockout. Last had almost 2 years ago and the time has been good. Decanted 1.5 hours, still fairly primary - would be a delicious one to age more, but so it goes. Aromatically incredible. So deep on the palate with that perfect refreshing note on the finish. Excellent pairing with fennel rubbed roast chicken, mushrooms cooked in the chicken fat, and oven fries with a tarragon aioli. — 6 months ago

200 Monges Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

Expressive nose, a bit reduced at first, then on ti ripe cherries, cocoa, liquorice , plums. Ample bodied, son of a dry and hot vintage, acidity that holds the alcohol and hood length and youth for a 2012. Remarkable, unexpected village, Albelda, must be the high land on the way to Clavijo. — 5 months ago

Dark fruit, earthy but lively and mineral. Great example but lacks the oomph to justify the steep price — 8 months ago
