Cantina Bartolo Mascarello

Barbera d'Alba 2017

Hard not to pick this off a restaurant wine list for 35 euros. We will probably get it on night 2 as well. I’ll see if I can link to the list. https://www.derbygrill.it/cms/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/LA-CARTA-DEI-VINI-Maggio-2021.pdf — a month ago

@Max Kelly definitely considered it but at that price point, I’m looking for a wine at its peak

@Chris MacLean I know what you mean, but I will say the ‘15 I drank off the list in La Morra showed beautifully

Riserva Vernaccia di Oristano 2002

ESF
9.0

Well, you’ve never had Vernaccia until you’ve had this stuff! From Sardinia, this was very Sherry-like, somewhere between Amontillado & Oloroso - very dry w/mind blowing complexity, concentration & vigor. Drinks fat & viscous w/distinct oxidized notes of balsamic, tobacco, toasted nuts & yeast, spices - absolutely ethereal spices like Asian 5 spice & sweet baking spices. Man, this was really way out there... — 2 months ago

Ghazii Pét-Nat Sangiovese Rosato

Delicious, dry, grapefruits and blood orange. This is insane for the vintage and petnat rarely disappoints. Buy this, smash this! — a month ago

Vicenziana Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

I opened this, then the Texas snow storms hit and crippled our energy grid. Consumed over a few days while sitting in my running parked car in my driveway. I was charging my cell phone, enjoying some heat and radio, and eating my dinners, plate resting in the passenger seat. All I could jot down - new leather and bright red cherries. — 3 months ago
