Bonina Langhe Freisa 2020

Round four of blind tasting. Somehow, we all completely whiffed on this but in retrospect it was so obvious. Quintessential Nebbiolo. Pale ruby color heavily featuring raspberry, cranberry, and red cherry notes. Quite tart but all ripe. There’s a stemmy-like green component that really stands out too. New leather, tar, and a dash of balsamic complete the profile. Almost no tannins but rather high acidity. How we all missed this will remain a mystery. — 4 days ago

Dark leathery fruits and dark in the glass, but lightweight and low tannin on the palate. Would do well on LI 😉 — 6 months ago

ottoBucce Piedmont Red Blend 2017

Dezzani ‘Otto Bucce’ Piemonte DOC Rosso 2017: Medium-bodied. Soft tannins. Low acidity. Tasting notes of strawberry, cherry, plum, vanilla, spice & oak. Medium dry finish. For me, this was an interesting wine as the label translates to “8 skins” hence blended from eight different grapes: Dolcetto 60%, Barbera 21%, Bonarda 5%, Merlot 5%, Cabernet Sauvignon 4%, Freisa 3%, Albarossa 1% & Syrah 1%. All in all, it works and comes together rather nicely. It’s complex, fruity & surprisingly well done. Great find! Great value! Cheers🍷 — 5 months ago

Dulcis Rosso Brachetto Freisa

LOVE this- every bit as good as the original brachetto (& same vintner) as the first brachetto I ever tasted. Not too sweet or plummy, just right!! Found it at HEB — 4 months ago
