I know it is Tuesday evening but I wanted to try this 2016 Deltetto Clone 777 Langhe Pinot Nero. I had picked this up about a week ago and had a taste for a pinot noir or nero tonight. An Italian pinot noir from the Langhe of Piedmont.
On the nose there is mutes notes of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, rose petals, sassafras and dusty soil.
On the palate I have notes of cherry, cranberry, raspberry, clove, licorice, wet leaves and dried summer soil.
This wine is medium bodied with medium to + acidity and medium + mouth coating grippy tannins that lead right into a medium to long pleasing finish. Be self assured that tomorrow brings the middle of the week and the long weekend be upon us. Stay safe and enjoy the slide unto a fine weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 4 days ago
A fantastic wine with strong taste. Taste from red berries. Lovely. — a month ago
Loved the Gaja amidst this nice lineup. It was tar and roses. Biggest of the bunch in flavor and the oldest at same time. The Conterno changed a lot in the glass. Started out tasting like it was nearly over the hill. Quickly climbed back to a very enjoyable wine and then dipped down again pretty quickly all within a couple of hours. The Vietti duo was spectacular and even better the next day. Preferred Ravera as it’s taste matched the powerful aromatics whereas the Lazzaritos flavor was a bit subdued in comparison. Nitpicking to be sure. Can’t wait to have these again after some age. — 5 days ago

Drank 5/22/19. Decent paiting with grilled lamb chops.
Fragrant nose of violets, rose petals, cherry, and a hint of truffle. A slight, musty library book scent blows off after an hour. Muted palate, with tar, earth, red and black cherry that are backed by firm tannins, which are still quite aggressive at 9 years of age. Long, dry finish dominated by tar and sour cherry. . This improved after a couple of hours. It is drinkable, but I would decant, or age another 2-5 years.
