@Delectable Wine this is actually quarantatre 43. Much more open than last time. Wow. Nose of soaked mid season cherries, intense spice, minerals, tobacco, leather, smoke. Gorgeous. Palate is juicy and has stunning inner mouth aromas. Man this is juicy. So complex and ripe but perfectly balanced and so so pure. Stunning depth and loads of cherries, ripe sweet tannins and insane freshness. Wonderful. With air the nose is more violets and gets really detailed and precise. Wonderful. — 4 days ago
What a nose... earth, forest floor, ripe black olive, rich fig, mushroom. Old Nebbiolo at its best. Silky smooth, round and balanced. The wine just keeps evolving in the glass. Flavors of fir, red fruits, savory herbs and a finish that never seems to end. Perfect with lamb ragu and wine braised short-ribs. — 2 days ago
Friday night and I have opened the 2015 Ada Nada Valeirano Barbaresco.
On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, clay pot, anise, vanilla and spice.
On the palate I am getting tart cherry, tart raspberry, cranberry, all spice, matchsticks, anise and kiln dried clay.
This wine is medium in body and well structured with medium to + acidity and medium + fine tannins that moves nicely into a long tannic well balanced finish. It looks like it is going g to be a great weekend so please do the same and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 16 days ago
