Brunate Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Tightly coiled with plenty of power this will need time. It’s quite brooding and muscular with slightly chewy tannins and an iron and tar palette right now. Will be great in 2030. — 25 days ago

Paired this with handmade tagliatelle and a creamy rabbit ragu. Palate cleansing, lip smacking acidity, great food wine. — 2 months ago

Il Censo

Njuro Terre Siciliane IGT Perricone 2015

Brought this over to my parent’s place for dinner the other night; the first time since before the pandemic started reaching the middle of the US so, late February. My father spent his career as a Supply Officer in the United States Navy and we lived in Bahrain during the early 90’s, shortly after the Gulf War. My family would routinely host large gatherings at our house when the Italian merchants would visit my dad. They would bring all of the ingredients including, but not limited to, tomatoes, pasta, mozzarella di bufala, and wine from the family vineyards in Sicily. As kids, we would play fooseball with Mario and Mario (not making this up) while they waited for the sauce to be ready. Anyway, my dad says this wine reminds him exactly of what they used to bring. In an instant, my parents were transported back 30 years to some their fondest memories. Ahhhh...the power of food and wine. Okay, so what’s this taste like? Rustic. Dark cherry fruit with earth and a fairly pronounced barnyard funk. It’s not overrun with brett but it’s there. The tannin is assertive but fair and plenty of acid for non-fussy meals like pizza and pasta. An utterly charming wine that nods to everything you expect from the old world. — 2 months ago

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007

Began in 1944, Mario Incisa acquired Cab Sauv & Franc vine cuttings, planted them on San Guido estate, called Castiglioncello, Sassicaia, "the place of many stones". A blend of 85% Cab Sauv, 15% Cab Franc. Aromas of black fruits & complex spice aromas. On the palate ripe black fruits, with flavors of cedar, vanilla spice, leather and cacao, a powerhouse. Fine soft tannins. silky smooth ending with slight earthy espresso character. Tastes great and has room to continue aging! — 4 months ago
