Limited Edition Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

Looking for something to pair to spaghetti all'Amatriciana tonight. Decent but the dish probably deserves a slightly richer wine, more southern Italy.

Decanted 3H, prior notes mostly apply:
Nose has spring roses, mashed tart cherry, cold tar, cold dark chocolate and brown sugar.
Palate has milk chocolate covered cherry, lightly charred wood, early season cherry, dry loam-y soil, medium tannins and a medium-long finish.

Declassified Barbaresco thanks to Italian yield limits, this wine is a total value play at ~$35.
1088 bottles produced.

Future bottles should be at least 5-8Y out, 2026-2029 for future sampling, this wine has the guts to get at least there, and then some.

Clerico Massimo

Lessona Nebbiolo Riserva 2011

Crushed flowers, mint, leather notes, dense but elegant, fresh with polished tannins. This is great Nebbiolo at still reasonable price. Drink or hold. Highly recommended. — 2 months ago

Ferghettina

Satén Franciacorta Brut Chardonnay

Lives up to the Saten description, smooth and a lighter sparkle. Crisp apple, barely ripe pear, and creamy on the palate. @ Massimo Camia — 2 months ago

Mario Russian River Valley Sangiovese 2009

Found this old bottle from some old buddies who got me into wine. Lost track of the over them years but so nice to find this bottle so many years later. Dusty, salty, dry, a little Sangiovese spice. Love it!
Thx Mario & Massimo!

Michet Nebbiolo d'Alba 2017

Elegant nebbiolo. Mature red fruits, a little oak, and earthier. Paired nicely with Porcini Plin. More like a baby Barbaresco. @ Massimo Camia — 2 months ago
