Anfora Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2017

Initially a bit closed and muted, after a while opened up nicely to display a zingy and surprisingly sharp and lively profile, with blackberry and blueberry elements. — a month ago

Sori San Martino Dogliani Superiore Dolcetto 2019

This is supposed to be their more elegant cru but man there’s a lot of muscle here. I’ll wait 2 years to open my next bottle. — 3 months ago

Bricco Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Great aroma, a touch less body than expected. Fills out nicely after a couple days. Tannins are still firm, but fruit is starting to fade a bit, at least in this bottle. — a month ago

Cannubi Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Sibi et Paucis. Which means that this bottle was aged an extra 10 years at the winery before release. Decanted and let rest for 3 hours. Just spectacular! — a month ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

A night back at Roscioli's
And i have been spoiled by my old friend and colleague Maurizio.
He opened for me this marvellous Barbaresco explaining how Versio's family use to confer the grapes to Bruno Giacosa, but at once realised they could do something extremely good on their own. Production is very limited apparently. The wine from the vi tage 2016 is in fantastic shape
Velvety tannin, fruit, roses, a bit of tar and altogether just absolutely in balance. Long aftertaste too.
I didn't take a picture of another couple of wines Maurizio poured me such as the Moulin-a-vent by Thibault Liger-Belair, which was a stunning discover for me(gamay looking very Burgundian, i dare anyone would call that wine from the Cote d'Or rather than Beaujolais), and then he comes with this unlabelled bottle and another wonderful story....
Apparently Anselme Selosse goes to this unknown wine guy named Prof Venturelli and wants to swap his entire production of rose for the entire production of Lambrusco di Sorbara bottled by him. Answer was a big no and last night i tasted a trebbiano spargolo made by this Prof Venturelli in full Champagne style.
Pretty hot stuff, pretty hot night.
Always an experience a night at Roscioli's the way, i was also gifted one of those Lambrusco di Sorbara, but i need to wait a bit before drinking i was told😊
