Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

This is simply an intense, masterful, delicious bottle. High tone, with an intricate and developing nose of rose water, amaretto, fresh sawdust, rock dust, and white pepper. Palate is intense with long deep juicy red cherry feel, and powerfully grippy but finessed tannins. Rounds out with tar and crushed granite, and a long building finish.

Darn. Polishing off the bottle four days later and this def is one of my fave barbarescos of recent memory. Such purity and linearity, and gaining precision not losing it! Rieslingesque in a way. I would buy a case of this even though I have nowhere to store it.

Yup. 94 Ludes wines are mosel legends. They also will last a decade or more.

I Vigneri di Salvo Foti

Vinudilice Rosé Blend 2019

Not showing as well aromatically as previous vintages, some of which have been my favorite rosés of all time. However, this has wild strawberries and sawdust on the nose and is chock full of acid and minerals per usual. Still a very good bottle of wine.

Maybe needs more time in bottle?
