Campo alle More Pinot Noir 2018

My WOTN. Thanks for the suitcase wine, MH.

Another blind. Very pinotesque, so most guessed the variety right. Interestingly, the winemakers on the table both thought it might have been a Nebbiolo - a fairly informed guess I reckon, especially with the tasting notes below and more effusive styles that have been popping up. Once more, appellation guesses took us around Italy yet no one got Soave.

What a Pinot Noir! Complex and unusual. To me, it looked quite new world-like (fruit sweetness, hints of marmalade), yet there was just this exotic (non-fruit) flair that kept it firmly in continental Europe. Ripe strawberries, cherries, heaps of dried herbs, pine, red tea, and hints of tar and petrichor. Rich and silky on the palate, with just enough acidity to keep it juicy. The finish was long and earthy, with an almost ash-like quality to it. Balanced and drinking well at the moment. One to revisit with a little more age for sure.

Col Foscarin Classico Recioto di Soave Garganega 2011

A passito unlike anything I’ve had from Italy. The raisiny brown sugar spice of a Vin Santo, crossed with the almondy stonefruity richness of a Zibibbo. But with a honey purity that seems almost Sauternes-like. Very good. — 5 years ago

Central Coast Syrah 2015

This is a major league workhorse fastball befitting the modern age; this is a Gini Wijnaldum wine, elegant, robust, & uncompromising in its considerable effort to shape thought, space, and facilitate room to the work. Unsung hero, surprising in its inclination to balance, & delightful. Got all them savories, got them grit, got a streak of badger & delightful acid. Chuffed with this. — 5 years ago
