Nice! Glad it showed well!

Colombera & Garella

Cascina Cottionano Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2018

This wine nicely straddles the line between an accessible Nebbiolo and a crisper high-altitude red. There is an interesting note of mint in the aroma. Firm acids but not too sharp. Well integrated red with with bright berry flavors, and dusty, mild, tannins. — 15 days ago

Proprieta Sperino

Uvaggio Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2013

Day 2: You can smell the spice, black pepper hits first with red cherry and dry dirt and a lilac or subtle lavender. The tannins are still present with acidity down the side of the tongue and around the teeth. The black pepper is more subtle on the palate, but still very much there. Tart red cherry, pomegranate, more lavender and some tree bark. It’s nice. A bit more fruit on day 1. Probably needs 3 or so more years. — 15 days ago

Cantina Conestabile Magione Case Parse Umbria Bianco Grechetto 2018

Harmonious deft combined with a graceful grapefruit deliverance + a persistent citron note that leave it to be described as a vinous vernacular! — 3 days ago

Pinot Nero 2017

Yet another winner from Ciro at Le Volpe e l’uva, this is a pinot nero from Tuscany (as opposed to Sudtriol, which is where I usually expect to find these). Just a terrific wine with a nose reminiscent of sour cherry with hints of leather, tobacco, and spice (nutmeg?). Beautifully balanced on the palate, with enough acidity for it to keep up with dinner (lemon and ricotta ravioli with a tomato-based pumpkin-chipotle sauce) but not so much that you can’t thoroughly enjoy it on its own. Really terrific. — 7 days ago

Romano Dal Forno

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2004

The rock is primal. Earth elemental with fresh cut. Hint of pineapple and triumphant tannins coat your tongue with flavor. Minerals like a mine shaft. — 5 days ago
