Paolo Bea

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2014

Slightly turbid. Noticeable VA (not at all out of place considering Bea). Powerful notes of cherry, stone fruits (apricot and peach), and cool, damp forest earth. Medium tannins and high acid. The finish is wild and satisfying. If my previous experience with this vintage was the reference, this was not quite as impressive as it was and based on the challenges of the 2014 vintage, probably time to drink and enjoy! โ€” 4 days ago

Paolo Bea

Cerrete Sagrantino di Montefalco 2009

Opens up after an initial showing of cinnamon, clove, anise, coriander, lavender, and dark dried fruits, presenting with BIG black cherry, much more fruit than other Bea wines. Hugely tannic on the palate to match, showing massive structure that would ensure this wine could lay down for another ten years, no sweat. Along with the rustic oak and grapeskin, the tannins bring bushels of potpourri and sage. Leaps out of the glass, hugely assertive on the nose. โ€” 5 hours ago

9.2

This is awesome. What a nose. Cherry heaven. Delicate and so pure. Dynamite nose. Superb spices and wood shavings. So so classic. Palate is pure velvet. So complex and ethereal. Really just floats on the palate. In a great place. Big tannins and such finesse. Lovely lingering sweetness. Really wonderful stuff. Almost a 9.3. Letโ€™s see how air treats this. โ€” 12 days ago

Riva del Bric Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

This is splendid. Really just enjoyed drinking this. Don't want to be too analytical. I have more and will post detailed notes later. Meanwhile, black cherry, earth/soil, toasted almond, vanilla, with a little hot alcohol still dominating the nose. Medium minus acidity on the palate, high alcohol, firm, still puckering tannins. This will likely improve. Very very good.
