Bocca Di Lupo Castel del Monte Aglianico 2010

The 2010 Bocca di Lupo is showing marvelously at the nine year mark. Sourced from this storied Puglia vineyard, the wine was partially aged in new French and Hungarian oak barrels (25%) before bottling. Tightly wound upon entry, this needs an hour decent to fully be aroused. Once awoken, the Aglianico takes the lead with a dense core of red fruits, leather and baking spices, with firm tannins and suggestions of milk chocolate that round out the expressive palate. Showing good freshness and verve, as well as weight, the 2010 Bucca di Lupo will enjoy a long life in the cellar. Drink 2019-2035- 92 — 3 days ago

Poggio Antico

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1999

Nose has ripe plum, ripe blackberry, over-ripe strawberry, (light) anise, (light) sous-bois, dark chocolate bar, prune, year-old hay and moist leather.

Palate has chalky plum, dark chocolate, dried cherry, dried rose petals, autumn leaves, black tea, (light) cedar shavings and licorice on the very long finish. Outstanding.

Decanted ~2 hours. Purchased 30 December 2005, and carefully cellared until this day. Paired with a scratch made thick, rustic tomato sauce, sweet+hot sausage from a local, recent partial pig purchase and great campanelle pasta. Oh man, great paring, last bottle 😞.

Anyone holding this wine could until 2020+, based on the amount of tannins still present, this wine certainly has some years prior to decline.

Monte Grande Soave Classico Garganega 2010

Garganega is a Northern Italian varietal that brings golden apple and dried apricot. Some aromas of honeyed almond and oak, with a sharp, astringent finish. Subtle and complex. Nice as a winter aperitif or with semi-hard cheeses. — 8 days ago
