Cantina Bartolo Mascarello

Barolo Nebbiolo 2005

Awesome. More soon. ….Drinking this wine is like sitting on the sofa with a big bar of dark chocolate. Very port like. Roses, leather, classic. Very dry dried figs. Plenty of tannins left. Could run for 10 more years with ease. 400$ now. Just drank a second and last bottle. One of the best Barolo’s money can buy. — 9 days ago

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2009

This rendition was a bit tighter and more closed than previous bottles. The inward experience was still very good. Lots of subtle oomph here but the fruit was overwhelmed. Solid showing though. — 7 days ago

Solid quality, I’m just not sure if it will benefit from additional cellaring — 14 days ago

Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Cherry and dark fleshy fruit is popping here. Sumptuous wine. Lots of heft depth and length. I drank this a bit young and it will clearly be better in the future but it’s still definitely fantastic now. — a month ago

Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

Opened very slowly. Little sediment and only light staining on the cork. This was without signature for the first 30 minutes. Very slight cherry and tar notes. Pleasant but nothing much evident. After 2 hours of decanting it opened and was more resonant but it never exceeded “generally nice”. Nothing was amiss but nothing zoomed or was special. Finish was not particularly long. Tannins were mellow. Bouquet was modest but somewhat inviting. Color was pale with orange rim. This was an auction purchase. — a month ago

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

That great Barolo coloring pale at rim and darkening toward center. This was not focused on opening but got there after 2 hours. Truffle cherry earth and a full palate experience. Lots of weight to this wine and it stays heavy on the back end. Went very well with the homemade bucatini. — 22 days ago

Marchesi Antinori

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2019

The Antinori family, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, lived in Tuscany since the 14th century. Blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cab Sauv & 5% Cab Franc, less maceration than prior vintages. Deep Ruby, aromas of black berry fruit aromas with herb, mint and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with cacao, vanilla and tobacco spice. Fine tannins, long finish, well balanced, ending with oak, juicy fruit and earthy mineral tones. Very Nice! — 15 days ago
