La Serra Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe berry fruits and fresh floral, mint and herb citrus scents, aged for 36 months in oak. On the palate the palate flavors of raspberry, cherry, tobacco and fresh herbs give this medium+ body wine some power, yet it’s graceful and elegant. Soft fine tannins on a well balanced frame makes this wine enjoyable today but it will be better in about 5 years and over the next decade. — 6 days ago

Tenute Guardasole

Pio Decimo Rosso Nebbiolo

PnP
N: Bing Cherries, tar, mulberries, damson plum, gravel road.
P: Cherries, tar, bright acidity, gentle tannic grip, esp. in the cheeks. Mid-light weight in the mouth. I know with air/time, this broadens. As it airs, a mossy, leathery, quality comes forward esp. on the nose.
Really delicious.

Labrusca Emilia Lambrusco Rosso 2019

Pizza night—this shit is so much fun: yeasty nose, earthy/zingy palate, gooseberry/tangy fruit, nicely dry, a bit of spritz. Uncomplicated & delicious. — 9 days ago

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

From nearly purple and dense in the middle to slightly orange brim surrounding the surface.
Nose as classic as it gets
Dark cherry, leather, truffle, licorice and.. soy sauce..and coffee..and if you keep swirling you get more and it isn't that classic anymore
The palate is full and in great tension
So fresh and vibrant
Almost whips you mouth
Majestic example of sangiovese that you can easily still put aside for a while, but absolutely enjoyable now too
Very long
Decanting would be very beneficial

Etna Rosso DOC Nerello Mascalese 2017

This wine does a little Pinot Noir act, medium ruby in the glass with earthy red fruit on the nose. The Sicilian grapes were grown on the slopes of Mt. Etna, and owner Michele Faro spoke during a Zoom gathering about his love of the volcanic soil. The nose also offers notes of coffee, sage and eucalyptus. The palate definitely shows the volcanic origin along with spice and pepper, plus a firm tannic structure. The sip finishes clean and savory. Very tasty. — 6 days ago

Cottanera

Feudo di Mezzo Etna Rosso 2016

This wine is medium ruby in the glass and smells of raspberry, cherry, anise and an earthy note. The palate is like a more savory take on Pinot Noir, with coffee, red fruit and spicy herbs. The tannins are very firm and the acidity is fresh. There is a long finish which carries the red fruit back. — 4 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2015

Colour of cold black tea. Cherry, toffee, earth and dried herbs on the nose. Palate has savoury earthy cherry - just medium bodied. The following night savoury red fruits with a skinnsy element on the palate developing into a touch of astringency. Not for long keeping - drink now if you have some. — 5 days ago

Rocca Ravera di Monforte Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Nice Barolo, not a bad value for the price. Needs more time and air. But still quite typical on the nose and enjoyable overall. — 10 days ago

San Venz Lessona Vino Rosso 2012

Lovely wine combining the delicacy, elegance, & finesse of Alto Piemonte nebbiolo and the concentration of appassimento grapes. Haunting nose, velvet palate. Supremely elegant. Cherry heering, soft tannins, dense fruit, medium finish. Needs upwards of 2 hours in the decanter, but 2012 is drinking beautifully now. — 3 days ago
