Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2018

honeydew & cantaloupe, pear & peach, quince & chamomile on the nose ~ palate leans more to citrus, creamy bruised stone fruits, saline & actual stoniness ~— but in short it can present a crazy grapefruit pith salt lick slam ~~~ just sayin’ — 7 days ago

Tar and roses and dark plums: this is a beautiful bottle of wine. With medium acidity, the wine begs to be served at a heavy meal! — 5 days ago

Great patio wine on this 80 degree day. Sea salt, cotton candy/melon. Ok acidity, but good salt and melon on the palate. Solid and yummy. — 14 days ago

Love this nose. It smells dirty. Like sweaty sex. Lemon rind, lemon peel. Mineral. Also hints of game? This is wild. Superbly focused citrus aromas as well. As it aerated the confectionery aromas are just superb. Timorasso is so good. Elegant, juicy, spicey and pithy. Really energetic and the flavors are so so unique. Bright and lifted. Long. This is great. — a month ago

Riserva Vernaccia di Oristano 1968

Delectable Wine
9.3

A deep amber with orange hues, the 1968 Vernaccia di Oristano Riserva comes to life slowly in the glass. At first, it’s dusty and dark with smoky wood tones, tobacco and brown spice. It blossoms with time, taking on notes of dried flowers, quince and spiced citrus. It’s deeply textural, almost creamy, yet balance is maintained through brisk acids that enliven its notes of baked apple and honeyed almonds. This is almost salty, as it finishes incredibly long with a nutty richness, resonating on hints of cacao and cinnamon. For all of its power, there’s a beautiful harmony to be found here. You could lose yourself in this wine. Wow. The 1968 Riserva spent 50 years maturing in chestnut barrels prior to bottling. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2021)

Light, crisp apples and pears, but of citrus and lemon through it and on the finish. Very drinkable. — 17 hours ago

Grifo Del Quartaro Gavi di Gavi Cortese

Gorgeous mineral fresh nose. Very clean. A mere hint of gooseberry.

Palate is very clean and mineral. Simple. Some green apple. Some grip. As it opens delicious.

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. — 12 days ago
