Pian Dell’Orino Vigneti del Versante Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2014: Smooth & elegant. Lively acidity. Medium tannins. Nice cherry bouquet. Red fruits. Leather. Herbs. Earth. Powerful long finish. All in all, I love this Brunello! Call me a creature of habit but this is my happy place. Grilled marinated skirt steak and a bottle of Brunello! Great weekend to all! Cheers🍷 — a year ago
First decent sunshine in the garden
Weekend is on early this week
Got delivered a 6 pack split between 2017 and 2016 yesterday
This '17 is delicious!!
It reminds me a lot of a sangiovese from Radda or Castelnuovo Berardenga or even a northern brunello. Vibrant, mineral, but supported by strong shoulders that you can't notice much at this stage. Neat and precise are the violet,tobacco and licorice.
Spices, leather and cola. The fruit is between a blood orange and a raspberry. I dare to say it recalls a Soldera's Brunello. Long, young and enjoyable from now and many years ahead. — 2 years ago
2010. Loved the orange wine and salmon sushi pairing last weekend, so when our friends were making salmon for us for dinner, I pulled this from the cellar. This wine was so good with the food! Not just with the parmesan-crusted salmon, but a fresh tomato cucumber salad and roasted cauliflower. — a year ago
Diving into the pond with the 🐸 tonight!
2 hour decant(cloudy sediment). An imposing dark crimson red color. On the nose: savory notes of smoked meat, little of the Cayuse funk(luv it), spice, campfire, floral, dark berries, black olives. Taste: smooth, creamy, rich, juicy, structured medium plus body wine with mouth coating cherry-raspberry, iron, tea, rich soil, pepper, smoke, and a minerally bacon grease long finish. YUM..what a start to the weekend! — a year ago
