After extended air, 1-11/2 hrs, this really deepened. Some plums show up and the tannins stand up and say hi!

"Ronco al Maso" Vespolina 2019

Spezie moltissimo pepe. Tannico. Molto. Manca di freschezza e sapidità. Molto secco. Profumo intenso di spezie. Lo trovo particolarmente intenso di spezie e manca un po' di frutto. Cmq ottimo ! Carnale e ferrico. — 2 months ago

Costa della Sesia Vespolina 2018

9.4

A superb Vespolina. Unreal nose of blackberry pastille, cherry flower, spices, herbs and tons of lavender. What a nose. Gorgeous. Clearly defined. Soil tones and intense fruit on the nose. A sick nose. Really blown away. Palate has that same clearly defined fruit with typical rustic Vespolina tannins and awesome jelly donut fruit with huge mineral and terrific freshness. Nose becomes pretty floral as well with air. Really refined for Vespolina and super long finish and wonderful fruit purity on the finish. So wonderful and La Badina’s secret weapon.

With air this has gone from 9.3 to 9.4. Stunning depth and texture and extraordinarily long finish. Just awesome.

Tenuta Monolo

Riserva Bramaterra Nebbiolo Blend 1990

A somewhat stunningly beautiful snapshot of evolution in a bottle. Definitely do not wait on this at this point (and no need to decant, but there is a ton of sediment). Pale brick red in the glass. Aromatically very nice, but lost a bit as the night wore on. Quite pure and fresh on the palate with light red cherries, dried red flowers, good acid, long finish. Very fun one to try. — 2 months ago
