La Cerbaiola di Salvioni Giulio

Wowie. Dark, ripe, dry tannins, deep red fruits and iron. Showing some secondary aromas and flavors (espresso, rusty metal and earth) but tons of fruit to boot. This is in a great place but will keep evolving beautifully for years I suspect — 3 months ago

I’m suspicious of 2011s but this sounds delicious!

@Tom Casagrande I’ve found quite a few 11’s to be really nice right now. Honestly you can’t go wrong with salvioni anyway. This was damn good

Ca' del Baio (Giulio Grasso)

Vallegrande Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

Fragrant & savoury and slowly entering the drinking window.
Dark, juicy cherries, a floral hint, a meaty whiff + a pinch of spice. Beautiful polished tannins that still grip this baby tight and juicy acidity balancing it out. Nice precision, good length + a great sense of place. This is a really fine wine!
Give it 1-2 hours in the carafe and it will shine!

Emidio Pepe

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2015

Very good
I hadn't had the trebbiano from Pepe for a looong time and the feeling is still similar
It needs time to open up
When young the palate is better than the nose
It is long and enjoyable
What has changed in time is unfortunately the price and i wondered if that is due to the market or because it has been harder to source or work the grapes
I used to pay it less than 15 euros back in Italy and I understand that time flies, but here in Melbourne this is on the shelf for 140 dollars.
I thank
@Giulio Bignozzi for sharing this with me, but I struggle to realise the dynamics about its pricing..or maybe I just don't want to.
For 30 or 40 euros I would be happy to buy and drink this, but for 140 dollars I would pick elsewhere perhaps
It is also a natural wine if I remember well and I reckon there should be a bit of ethic behind that too. Still a very good wine nonetheless, but i couldn't keep the critic for myself.
