La Spinona (Pietro Berutti)

Langhe Nebbiolo 2019

Upon opening, a big nose of mentholated cherries and some heat.
Full, settles into cherries, bark, wood.
The palate has some dilute( not unpleasant) leather, cherries, chocolate, some wood, souis bois.
acids are present and there’s a bit of tannins. But overall, this is a puppy( pun intended).

Valtellina Superiore Grumello Nebbiolo

I’ve had this 2017 a few times now. Opened 3 days ago snd was tight and austere. Now it’s gorgeous. Cherry fruit leather. Hint of black and licorice. Dusty tannins, likely to be at its peak in a couple of years. — 6 months ago
