Langhe Rosso Nebbiolo 2018

Really delicious and budget friendly Langhe Nebbiolo. (With some Barbera, Dolcetto and Freisa blended in). Plums, cherry compote with vanilla notes that linger. Soft and approachable even though this is such a young wine. Really nice. — 15 days ago

Buon Padre Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

A classic Barolo. This young version profited from a round in the decanter. Lots of tannins which goes well with cheese — a month ago

Gramolere Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

La Gemella Barbera d'Alba 2019

Loved this wine. Not sure if it’s intentional but it has some perfectly balanced off flavors like diactyl and acetic acid. It makes it super complex with lots of dark fruit, a slight buttery taste and an acidic bite. One of the best wines I’ve had in a long time. — a month ago

Modestu Moscato 2018

Exceptional. The nose is a true bouquet with honey & herbal notes. Aromatics get deeper as it takes on air. The wine opens with layers of tropical fruit with hints of lemon. Texturally this shows mild tea-like tannins. Wonderfully fresh and quite unique. — 2 months ago

@Ceccherini Cristiano - I think this is one of those that would have normally ended up in restaurants that is now more available. Happy to buy it!

Castelletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Glugg on the nose...yes cardimom cloves cinnamon without the heat. Yummy without tasting. Red fruit burst with tobacco mid palate. Great length smooth tannins. . Loving it. 3 more bottles and drink over next 3-7 years. Drinking window open for 2009 manzone but will have to try the bricat/gramolere to see if similar love it. — a month ago

Riserva Franzisca Barrosu Cannonau di Sardegna 2017

Really nice concentration - almost amarone-like, with dried fruit, raisins, dates. Delicious tho - even at 15.5% abv, pretty darn balanced. — 2 months ago

Il Roncat Monte dei Carpini Pignolo 2016

My first experience with a Friulian Pignolo...Wow..what a simply perfect pasta/pizza wine. Nice bright berry red color... medium weight on the palate...smoke, BlackBerry fruit, sweet red fruit and brilliant lively acidity...perfect foil to red tomato sauce and sausage pizza. Only problem being that the balance, refreshment quotient, and cravability mean a single 750 is not enough. Lost the battle w/wife for last swallow! What a great bargain for Saturday night red sauce! — 2 months ago
