Pineto Brachetto d'Acqui 2019

ESF
9.0

Slight fizz, slightly sweet, an Italian treat where they’ve mastered the ability to make infinitely quaffable wines w/every level of effervescence & sweetness. This is no exception - impeccable balance & charm. — 18 days ago

Vigneti Massa

Monleale Colli Tortonesi Barbera 2012

I asked for a cozy, wintry, fireplace kind of wine with earthy, smoky, peppery, and meaty notes, and that’s what I got! Dark cherry, black plum, finocchiona salami, black pepper, cumin, leather, tobacco smoke, fresh earth, wet clay, Chinese five spice, sanguine minerality. Vibrant acidity and well-integrated tannins; beautifully balanced. Somehow both rustic and polished. Enjoyed on the last night of the worst year in history. — 18 days ago

Gianfranco Alessandria

Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

So lithe- & so young. Decant the heck of it. Very delicate confluence of Barolo flavors- where is that 14.5%? Lovely roses, tar. — 8 days ago

San Lorenzo di Verduno Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Brooding high-tannin Barolo, even for someone like me who happily drinks most Nebbiolo young. Floral nose, fresh blackberries, anise... lighter in weight, but BIGLY chewy. This needs air, but should be cellared for 5-10 years. — a month ago

Fratelli Monchiero

Montanello Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

Vintage 1999 | my last bottle, overwhelming smell with layers of cedar, stable, leather, farm roses. Refined taste with characteristic bitters. Paired with ossobuco and saffran risotto. — 9 days ago

Bersano

Gavi 2018

Stone fruit: peaches if you want to be specific.

Hint of honey... and oddly enough, salt?

I love Gavi. Beautiful white.
