Cascina Cottionano Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2020

Quite a complex nose after the initial (strong) reduction blows away - red berry compote, damson plum, some rose hip, a bit of nutmeg, some sweet incense, a bit of tar. But there’s also an incredibly uplifting fresh note - mint, Mandarine peel.
Richness, finesse, sappy freshness.
On the palate this is quite light with finely polished, dusty tannins, fresh red berry acidity and overall great purity. Plus a bit of rusty, bloody minerality in the background and a cranberry infused savoury finish.
Balanced and with good length and incredibly food friendly! A really nice one from Alto Piemonte.

Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT Sangiovese 2016

2016: Tons of sour cherry Sangiovese fruit but not much else showing. Very tart, missing complexity and balance. Still too young? Possibly, but other years have tasted similar. Tough to justify with so many great 2016 Brunellos and CCRs. $45? — 6 days ago

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish/ brick rim.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, black plums, cooked cherries, oak, light licorice, earth, chocolates, tobacco leaf, light must, peppercorn, raisins, herbs, dried figs and light alcohol.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with black currants, sweet plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates, earth, herbs and licorice.

Spicy long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This 14 year old Amarone is still delicious, with a beautiful color and a great nose. Tangy and very spicy.

Elegant and fruit forward. Easy drinking and good right out of the bottle.

Will not last much longer, so drink up if you have one.
