Lampo Gropello 2020

Su. Na. Wi. = Super Natural Wines

The unmistakable philosophy aside, this comes from a little winery in Northern Italy that's owned by a friend in KL along with his Italian mates. So when the said friend describes this as an interesting red with heaps of balsamic notes, you can be sure he’s spot on. The Lampo was an oddly pleasant savoury red - made of 100% Gropello, it had tons of seaweed flavour with balsamic and soy sauce accents. Crunchy acidity made this flow down the wine hole way too easily. Could use more fruit, but it may just have needed more air to express itself.

Castello di Luzzano

Carlino Bonarda 2017

Dark ruby (almost purple) color. Plush aromas of purple flowers, black fruits and baking spices. Just a touch of Brett. The pallet is loaded with black berry/cherry/raspberry fruit. Touch of black pepper on the long finish. Full bodied. Interesting varietal. — 21 hours ago

Il Pettirosso Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio Nebbiolo 2016

Decanted about 1 hr.
N: Blood, dirt, mineral, iron, very sexy nose, constantly getting deeper, evolving,
P: Bright acidity, tannins are elusive but there, red/yellow plums, rainier cherries, mouth filling aromas, Northern Nebbiolo., it has that exquisite bittersweetness and lightness on your palate that makes you return again, again.

Stella Retica Riserva Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2010

This btl was absolutely singing. So glad I have one left. Pitch-perfect mtn nebbiolo. Soft blood orange and tar with some violets. On the palate: caressing soft citrus and amazing density without weight...soft tannin on the long finish. Wow. — 21 days ago

Nicola Gatta

Quattrocento Extra Brut Chardonnay Pinot Noir

A solid first encounter from this up-and-comer producer from Lombardia. According to the importer, Nicola’s bubbles are on “every” top restaurant wine list in Italy. Wow, I can see why - Nicola sports the right narrative (natty, maverick), but the proof was in the bottle itself! The Quattrocento, which is Nicola’s late disgorged offering (40 months on lees), could easily give many Champagne’s a good run for their money. It was textural, incisive, and expectedly leaned more towards an oxidative and autolytic profile, with flavours of pastry, almonds, baked apples, and hints of spice. Admittedly, I was looking for a little more length and intensity, but the wine had good energy and drank with little resistance. A win for me! — 6 days ago

Alanera Rosso Veronese Corvina Blend 2011

Excellent Italian red. The color was a tad orange which worried me at first. We used an aerator. Lovely flavors of cherry with a nice soft tannin finish. I will buy this again. — 7 days ago
