Costa Graia

Superiore Piglio Red Blend 2013

Fantastic purity, the mouthfeel and aromas make me think it has a teeny bit of carbonic. This is a Lazio wine from vineyards south of Rome made from the Cesanese grape and puts fourth a wine here that is part Burgundy, part Gigondas, but very Italian in acids. Bright red raspberry and currant fruits, licorice, mushroom and spice.

Merlot-Spätburgunder Rotwein 2001

Really, Delectable? Never seen a wine like this before? 😜 This was interesting. Not good, but interesting. Quite a bit of RS, grapey fruit and not much else. Almost like a bottom shelf plum wine. Then again, how often do you get to taste a 15 year old merlot/pinot blend from Romania? #alwayslearning — 4 years ago
