Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Trebbiano-Malvasia Blend 2012

Badia a Coltibuono Vin Santo Del Chianti Classico DOC 2012: Full-bodied. High acidity. High alcohol. Beautiful amber orange in color. Tasting notes of apricot, honey, caramel & raisin. Long sweet finish. Consisting of carefully selected & dried Trebbiano & Malvasia grapes, this vin santo was aged in small oak casks for 8 years, hence producing a delectable & balanced sweet rich taste. For me, this was the perfect way to end the evening. Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 4 months ago

Borgo Badia

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

This is precise and nicely done for a bargain-priced Barbaresco. Nose, with air, shows very pure dark cherry fruit, a bit of rose petal, smoky crushed rock and gravel, and some spice notes. It’s concentrated, chiseled, and fairly full in the mouth. Loads of dried cherry and stone flavors. Significant but soft tannin, and good acids. Enjoyable now but will likely get better over the next several years. — 5 months ago

@Daniel Bloom - I did some investigation. The back label uses an alphanumeric code (which the Italian government assigns each winery) for the winery that bottled it: CN 9568. That is the same code that appears on Garagiste’s “Ca’ Rozzeria” private label for Barolo and Barbaresco offerings. Those offerings in the past have borne a cork stamped with the Icardi winery logo. So I’m betting “BorgoBadia” is a second or alternative label of Icardi.

Nice sleuthing, Tom. I've enjoyed a number of the Ca'Rozzeria Piedmont offers, though I would generally recognize them to be delicate and not particularly perfumed.
