'I Sassi' Basilicata IGT Aglianico

Rich and complex with lots of leather and tannins and just a bit of fruit. I’ve enjoyed it with ragu and a New England fish chowder. Delish. — 2 months ago

Le Brunate Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Off the list at Donato Enoteca in Redwood City. Serviceable young Barolo to go with our white truffle focused lunch. Old school in style, very open for business from the get go. — 3 years ago

Giacosa Donato

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1990

Old style barbaresco. The tannins have mellowed out but they are still there. Tertiary aromas that are hard to describe, faint rose petal perfume, old leather, maybe a bit of cinnamon. The color is brownish red. It is medium body with drying sensation at the end. The finish is long and persistent. I bought this one a long time ago and probably paid $20 or less . I am pleasantly surprised how good it is for its age and the producer’s obscurity. — 4 years ago

Castello di Monsanto

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2019

Another vintage, another lovely Chianti Classico Riserva from Castello di Monsanto which continues to be a benchmark for wines from San Donato in Poggio. Popped and poured; enjoyed over two days and consistent over both. The 2019 Monsanto CCR pours a deep ruby color with a translucent core. Medium+ viscosity with no staining of the tears and no signs of sediment. On the nose, baked mixed berries, dried green herbs, red carnations, dried gravely earth. On the palate, the wine is dry. Medium+ tannin and Medium+ acid. Confirming the notes on the nose. The finish is medium+. A lovely pairing with almost any red sauce dish. Drinking well now and I expect it will continue to do so through 2034. — 5 months ago

Cardito Lazio Malvasia Puntinata 2014

interesting little wine for unpacking from the beach, and another ignored on the shelf for a (too?) long time....but we are grooving to the liquid gold hue, the dried apricot, the apricot pit, and the wet rock notes coming in mini waves...not bad with the chaos of open chips bags. — 3 years ago

Aglianico del Vulture Aglianico 2013

16/20 (89/100) Аромат кожи, чёрных ягод, лакрицы и шоколада, при этом фруктовая составляющая выглядит приглушенно. В развитии проявляются ноты табака. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, замшевыми по текстуре танинами. Строгое во вкусе. — 4 years ago
