Le Trazzere di Don Pino Grillo 2019

Warm ripe buttery tropical fruit aroma. Hint of juicyfruit bubblegum and overripe melon. Tastes less distinctively of tropical fruits and melons. Very fat mouthfeel with good acidity that balances and freshens. Good finish. A real contrast to my usual flinty grassy SBs. I really rate this and it is excellent value — 5 days ago

Katz-Ponzo Vineyard Zinfandel 2018

This is the Marquis. It’s beautiful offspring of a Pino and Nebbiolo love affair. Yes, I know it’s a Zinfandel. — 19 days ago

Citrus/grapefruit, Little hints of smoke. I like the Mark V divers helmet on the label. Decent effort that I am going to enjoy with my usual Saturday dinner, a thick bone in chop. — 19 days ago

Albesani Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2016 Barbaresco Albesani is the most reticent wine in this range. I have seen that before with this wine, only to see it blossom with a few years in bottle. Powerful and tightly wound, the Albesani is a Barbaresco to cellar for at least a few years. At this stage, it is all acid, tannin and brawn. Super-classic in the best sense of the term, the 2016 really only starts to blossom with about 24 hours of air! All of the classic Albesani breadth and inner sweetness is there, it just needs time to reveal itself. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020) — a month ago
