Söri' Valgrande Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2004

Fresh and dried cherries, roses, dry leaves, cinnamon, and blood oranges. HIGH acid and tannins—this needed salty and savory food to feel complete. (Still many years ahead of it!!) — 6 days 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

Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

This was a delicious fastball right down the middle of the plate, as far as Barolo goes…and when considering that we’re working with the 2014 vintage, this was especially noteworthy. Dark cherry, alpine herbs, tar, minerals, and black licorice were predominate. A long, lip smacking finish. Again, worked really well with the bison tartar and duck frites. — 2 months ago

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
