Uvaggio Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2019

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course two hours. The 2019 “Uvaggio”pours, a bright garnet color with a transparent core, moving to a rose colored rim. Medium+ viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with notes of Morello cherry, strawberry, raspberry, pink roses, talcum powder, a smell that reminds me of the produce section in a grocery store of a developing country (yeah, it’s specific but, fight me), dried green herbs, and stony earth. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with high tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose, the finish is long, juicy and a touch spicy with a bit of black pepper that I find quite intriguing. A delicious pairing with lamb/beef kofta. All in all, another brilliant vintage of “Uvaggio” and further proof that the work of Luca DeMarchi at Proprieta Sperino is worthy of serious attention. Drink now through 2034. — 18 days ago

Ruby coloration. Strong plum on the nose and palate. Rich, full body pretty devoid of tannins at this point. — a month ago

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 1986

Garnet core , terracotta , browning rim . Quite tertiary with black tea , sous bois , dried cherry ,old wood , spice , dried sage . Quite good density on the palate , dried red fruits , rose , spiced dried cherry. Fresh acidity and quite gritty tannin , spiced sour cherry and black tea stained finish . This is pretty mature , but though very tertiary on the nose on the palate fills out quite well . Starting to dry out on the finish should have been drunk by now but still holding on , drink now . — 10 days ago

Vintage? “Holding On” sounds like an oldie! 1997? Was fabulous in an earlier drinking window…Please detail Vintage; helps with others holding your same wine! Cheers 🍷

Was delicious. Great for mineral lovers. However, this $56 reserve blend was not noticeably different from the $25 blend. I will get the $25 blend next time. — a month ago
