Vigna Lazzairasco Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Really light red color. A delightfully light red. Moderately high acid. Nose of mint and maybe a hint of tar. Notes of tobacco, soil, and cherry. — 15 days ago

9.0

This Alto Adige Pinot Noir packs a lot of varietal character. Peppery herbs, savory spice, notes of bright cherry and strawberry waft up from the glass. Cool-toned, pure and precise, it balances ripe fruit with a hint of fine tannin, while promising several years of positive evolution. $21.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — a month ago

Verdicchio di Matelica 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

Honied florals, crisp yellow apple and hints of citrus set the stage for soothing textures that balance ripeness of fruit against stimulating mineral tones. A sweet-and-sour sensation creates further intrigue, as well as lending a drink-me-now persona to the wine. $18.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — a month ago

9.4

What a nose. Embers, smoke, spice, loam, superbly mineral and almost saline. Beautiful cherry fruit under it all. Dark and so perfumed. Huge spice and aromatic depth while also being a kind of restrained wild. Lovely, penetrating aromas. Can’t get enough. Palate has just ridiculous juicy and dense fruit with substantial tannins. Bright cherry fruit and wonderful freshness. Huge acids. Terrific concentration, freshness and energy. This is so complete. A baby but still delicious. Leaves a fruit/tannin impression for minutes. Very solid 9.4. — 2 months ago

Guidalberto Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018

Wine o'clock watch pairing ...

Mid-2000s Omega Speedmaster Reduced II 3539.50.

This Guido needs a lot more time for my taste. It opens with promising barnyard aromas that subside and give way to oak -- which are fairly dominant in my opinion. Unripe red fruits, a mineral/metallic cherry taste (I know, makes no sense). Medium bodied, medium alcohol, double dry tannins. Finish of sour cherry.

I will buy another bottle to hold for 2-3 years and expect I'll score it 2 points higher meanwhile in Sept 2020, it's a 91+ on my scale.

Deep brown color, legs
On the nose the wine has some oxidative volatile acidity aromas, soy sauce, butter pretzels. On the palate the texture is dense and viscous. THIS IS PX AT ITS FINEST

#overrated tasted it blind with 3 other #supertuscan wines ranging from 40€, 75€ and these and #ornellaia (the best). all the other 3 were better. This was light intensity aromas on the nose, it really the least aromatic and then on the palate it was acidic just a little disjointed and unbalanced. — a month ago

Interesting comment, @MICHAEL COOPER— many years ago I secured 4 bottles of the 1985 Sassacaia on release, put one into a 1985 Bordeaux/CalCab super vertical with 5 flights, 30 wines total, blind to everyone (I knew which flight of 6 it was in, but not which wine it was). Our group of 12 tasters was so underwhelmed that I took advantage of the RP100 score and unloaded the remaining 3 bottles for more than $1,250 per, and never looked back. To each his own, though, as I know folks who adore Sassacaia!!

@MICHAEL COOPER , meant too add the blind vertical tasting was in 1995, IIRC.

A fruit-forward yet wonderfully fresh red, showing a mix of cherry, raspberry, sweet herbs and spice. Cooling minerals and earth tones balance the warmth of the 2015 vintage nicely. Vinified in large neutral oak. $18.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — a month ago

9.3

A stunning opening reveals depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange and roses. Silky textures tug at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then sooth through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. A blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — 2 months ago
