Dolcetto d'Alba Superiore 2015

N: Lots of tar, balsamic notes , Cherries,
Plum sand tobacco.
P: lots of presence in the mouth, viscous, tannic and acidity in good balance.
Deep black cherry fruit, pleasantly drying, makes you want another.

La Palazzetta (Flavio Fanti)

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1997

This bottle was one in a brace of Brunellos, generously shared and curated by our friend Tim.

Served blind after a lengthy slow-ox, I knew we were drinking Brunello di Montalcino but that’s it. Visually, there were no obvious signs of age. Initially quite reticent, I found this slow to come around but after an hour or so in the glass, it became quite the charmer! Tart cherries, black tea, earth and minerals. Long, lip smacking finish. Great balance. Seemed ultra traditional to me.

Revealed to be a 1997 “La Palazzetta” Riserva. There seemed to be a youthfulness about this wine that belied its 23 years of age. I have little doubt that we’ll stores examples will be drinking well in 2030. Killer with meal of certified Piedmontese eye of ribeye and simple pasta with red sauce.
