The Swiss Army knife my father gifted to me in 2002 on a trip to Niagara Falls has been a prized object in my life. From etching initials into tree bark to camping to building furniture to opening bottles of wine, this glorified knick knack has transcended that category for me and will always have its place on my desk wherever I may be.
Rich and creamy bouquet. Black pepper and vanilla and unusually, goat cheese.
Light in terms of tannins, but a medium to high acidity makes this stand out. Intense red cherries. Packs a punch berry fruit up front, the acidity rushes in at the midpoint and then ends with a slight, yet welcome, astringent note. — 2 days ago
Terrific rose. Blood orange, tangerine, strawberry, mineral, some Nebbiolo dust as I like to call it. Super earthy and mineral. Really aromatic. Concentrated and substantial but while remaining crest and vibrant. Strawberry, cherry, even peach and super juicy and long. Hint of spice on the finish. Nice body and weight. Good length. — 2 months ago
The 2019 Sperino Rosa del Rosa is stunning, opening to reveal depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange, and roses. It floods the palate with silky textures, tugging at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then soothing through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. The finish is long, showing a hint of fine tannins, yet not austere; instead tactile, perfectly balanced with a hint of savory spice and just begging me to take another sip. This is a blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina, which is gorgeous right now, but it may even get better with a little time in the cellar. Frankly, it was hard to put the glass down.
