Big big cherry, spice, sour cherry, some tea aromas, floral, very nice. Juicy and clean. Loads of sour cherries, ample fruit and spice. Clean, precise and laser like focused tannins. @Delectable Wine this is appellation “Costa Della Sesia.” On the back label. Thanks. — 6 months ago

A fresh Rosato with citrus-tinged florals and minerals, then hints of ginger and crisp green apple. On the palate, soft textures are offset by vibrant acids, with minerals, spice, young strawberry and cherry. The long finish is laced with Nebbiolo tannin and notes of citrus. $17.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2020) — 3 months ago
A stunning opening reveals depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange and roses. Silky textures tug at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then sooth through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. A blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — 2 months ago
Lovely purity of berry compote along with an underlying ferrous, rusty nail type iron mineral character. With time in the glass there’s also some very attractive almond paste or pie crust notes, dried cranberry and yoghurt covered raisins.
In the mouth it’s incredibly approachable with fine grained tannins that are very well interpreted into the red currant and cranberry fruit. It’s refreshing, approachable and very food friendly as the acidity seems to be perfectly ripe in this vintage. Don’t think I’ve tasted a better vintage of this in the past 5 years or so. As with most Italians, food will elevate this. 👌🏽 — 4 months ago
The Swiss Army knife my father gifted to me in 2002 on a trip to Niagara Falls has been a prized object in my life. From etching initials into tree bark to camping to building furniture to opening bottles of wine, this glorified knick knack has transcended that category for me and will always have its place on my desk wherever I may be.
Rich and creamy bouquet. Black pepper and vanilla and unusually, goat cheese.
Light in terms of tannins, but a medium to high acidity makes this stand out. Intense red cherries. Packs a punch berry fruit up front, the acidity rushes in at the midpoint and then ends with a slight, yet welcome, astringent note. — 4 months ago
