Tonight's wine I have opened is the 2016 Gaja Sito Moresco Langhe. This is a blend of 35% Nebbiolo, 25% Barbera, 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
On the nose there is cherry, strawberry, plum, licorice, spices, light herbaceous notes, leather, violet and minerals.
On the palate is cherry, strawberry, plum, red currant, cedar, spice, minerals, a bit of salinity and earthy notes.
This wine is medium bodied that has a freshness to the smooth mouthfeel, medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine round tannins which moves into a long red fruit earthy finish. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there this weekend. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 2 days ago
This Brunello is medium dark red in color. The nose shows cherry and cassis aromas, draped in anise, cedar, vanilla and a layer of smoke. The palate is fruity and carries a good acidity and tannic structure. A spicy streak cuts through with an herbal character. The finish is long and brings the savory aspect back for a reminder. — 15 days ago
This inky ruby-colored wine offers up a nose as dark as its hue. Black cherry, tar and old leather mix in with tobacco and vanilla notes. There is an herbal element, too, which gives a sort of minty framework for the aromas. The palate is a juicy array of dark fruit with a touch of anise. The tannins are fine and smooth and the finish brings those dark berry flavors back for a lengthy review. — 15 days ago
This Barolo shows its garnet color turning to that of bricks. The nose is soft and savory, with an earthy presence to frame the cherry and floral flavors. The palate shows red fruit and licorice with a hefty dose of citrus minerality. Oak spice plays a role, as does the wine’s great tannic structure. The finish is long lasting and centered on the savory side. — 15 days ago
Very nice wine, smooth. Not overly tannic and didn’t feel very alcoholic either. Attack and finish very clean, mid-palate a bit weak comparatively. — 2 days ago
Fabulous wine. Smooth on the front and rich on the back. Fine pairing to Italian food — 23 days ago
