Granato Teroldego 2011

More classically styled than the amphora wines, this still has that brambly, savory, leafy character. It’s a bit reminiscent of a great Cabernet Franc - maybe that’s why Foradori is keen on those at Ampeleia — 8 days ago

Fontanasanta Vigneti Delle Dolomiti Nosiola 2018

PnP. Light yellow with greenish hue. Lime, lemon, white flowers and ginger. High acidity and good tension - a vertical wine. I understand this does a skin contact but I wasn’t able to detect that. Quite enjoyable and refreshing. — 11 days ago

Riserva Ciada Fara Nebbiolo Blend 2013

9.4

Oh man. If the Sizzano is the St. Joseph the Fara is the Côte Rotie. Wow. Insane nose. Honey, roses, so floral. Takes 25 minutes to get crazy. Stunning spice. So pure. Palate is so juicy and deep with such breadth. Big, ripe and juicy tannins. But big. Impactful. So long. Just saps the palate. Truly a fine fine wine. So elegant and nimble yet also has power. This has 15+ years ahead of it. Grand Cru level. Really concentrated. Echoes on the palate. Might be a 9.5. — 11 days ago

Hey G. Looks like you went to Italy. We’ve been talking about a trip. I’ll assume you went a few months ago as opposed to the Russian Roulette specials :-). Hope you and the family are well.

“San Bartolomeo” Sizzano DOC Riserva Nebbiolo Blend 2013

Lyle Fass
9.4

Okay this is awesome. Old school. Cigar, Cuban tobacco, chestnut, tar, dead roses, so so so Nebbiolo. The high toned aromas are just stunning. Really wafts. It’s old school but super clean. Pop and pour and the aromas just kill! Wow. Wow. Palate is just gorgeous. Astonishing purity and freshness and oodles of mid season ripe cherries and wonderful opulence. Superb juiciness. Like 10/10 juiciness. Lovely velvety tannins and such a long juicy finish. So so pure. This is a freakshow. — 11 days ago

Sgarzon Vigneti delle Dolomiti Teroldego 2011

This being aged in amphorae, it has always had that bright, powdery, open acidity, and I wasn’t sure how it would age, but it’s going great - that character is still there, and it’s even a little gassy at first, but the acid is more integrated with the brambly fruit, which is itself opening to reveal more complexity — 8 days ago

Lahn Vigneti Dolomiti Kerner 2017

Bone dry Italian white I got from Wine Access. This wine is so foral on the nose and goes great with cheese. Perfect wine to start the evening. — 6 days ago

Vigneti delle Dolomiti Teroldego 2015

Same night that I opened up the dame de montrose with age I also opened up this lovely number and I actually ended up drinking it with our steak while my partner drink the Bord. I just love these wines they are so pure and delicious! Dark fruit and earth but juicy and fresh! — 24 days ago

Riserva Antichi Vigneti Propri Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1964

Old Nebbiolo nose with sour cherry on palate for first two hours, then rose and red fruit for next hour, then as it was just hitting its stride it was gone - we finished it. Next time need to be more patient, if I’m lucky enough for a next time. Purchased from Walker Wines who has great old Nebbiolo offerings. — 13 days ago
