Canalicchio Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015


A serious wine that probably needed a few more years. Heavily tannic, opened up after about an hour. Cherries, earth, a pleasant underlying sourness. Distinct on the palate, with a lingering finish. Thanksgiving bottle #2. — 2 days ago

Bussia Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Lyle Fass

Nose is aromatic and ripe with a hint of stewed tomato to start off. Mid season cherry and really bright. Wish that overripe tomato was not there. It slowly blows off but on PNP it is prominent. Cherry flower. Tar. Spice. Nice nose. Not great. Palate is ripe and juicy but slightly broad with good balance, purity and freshness. Big tannins that I associate with Bussia. Good power and depth. No finesse. Solid not special. Maybe air helps?

UPDATE/ Air did help.this. 9.0 to 9.3. More silkiness and clearly defined fruit.

Provincia di Pavia Rielsing 2017

limpido cristallino. giallo verdolino tenue. non ha fatto macerazione. se no sarebbe stato piu carico di colore. potrebbe essere vitigno scarico di colore. anusare prima a bixchiere fermo per profumi piu volatili.
melone bianco. frutta gialla. cedro. pesca bianca. erbe. mentolata. foglia pomodoro. pomodoro grappolo. strusciate tra le mani. non dirette. colore giallino verdolino ai profumi.
acidita perche bocca saliva. sensazione tattile della acidita. molto lungo in bocca e sapido. chiusura amaricante, amara.

Cascina Sciulun Superiore Barbera d'Alba 2017

Lots of Barbera acid, stewed sour cherry, dried violets, brambly, cedar, black pepper and touch of baking spice. Some Nebbiolo-like tar? From Amaro Spirits and Wine. 10/30/20 — a month ago
