Riserva del Fondatore Tenuta La Volta Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Kalamata olives, dried black cherries, baker’s chocolate, rusted jalopy, black pretzel, tar, and dried violets. Energetic aromatically; evocative of a rustic stone house with a variegated garden of herbs, and perhaps straw roofing. Plum moves forward in a good way rounding out the basket. Powdered cherry and blood orange with the finest tannins seem to liquify into a delicious balancing act between fruit and earth and herbs. Ripe plum, dried red cherries, black cherry juice, black olives, blood orange over grilled meat, sassafras, sage, tarragon, black truffle, chicory and walnut. Not a traditional pairing with Californian lamb from sustainable vineyards in Lake County, but revalatory. #Barolo #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #nebbioli #cabutto #tenutalavolta #docg #piemonte #piedmont — 2 years ago

Sânta Lusa Albana di Romagna 2013

Went upscale 🤠 during Christmas evening with this orange, near-extinct, full bodied Albana di Romagna Secco. Matched only with a frugal dinner of cold cuts, cheese and arugula this orange wine was spot-on! Much welcomed acidity for a 14,5% vol. Tropical fruits, some nutty aromas. A great discovery indeed!

Tenuta Cavelier Pepe

Santa Vara Irpinia Falanghina

Lemon, green banana, lime pith, daisy, crushed rock dust, a sweet note: lemon verbena pudding. Lychee notes with lemon, lime and tangerine with amazing acid and mineral residuals that coalesce to lemon soaked pith. Round and lovely aura around tangential, edgy acid. Finesse.

La Loggia del Cavaliere

Riserva Taurasi Aglianico

Liquid obsidian. Fine pepper and sparkler smoke encircle dense raspberry and sloe reductions with dried, black plum skins, a solid, semi-sweet bakers chocolate cake, madura cigar, flint and smoldering willow plaited sinewously! Medium heavy mouthfeel, green-pointed and obstructively tannic til open, but emerged rippling and pleasant with graphite, vine charcoal, powdered cadmium, raisined red currant and cassis. Rustic Power!! #tenutacavalierpepe #taurasi #Aglianico #Luogosano #SantAngeloallEsca #italianwines #docg — 3 years ago

Tenuta Russo Bruno

Greco di Tufo

There is dried orange peel, lemon seed, and ginseng leading caper, rye bread, clove and a whittle of maple breezing. Grippy lemon and pomelo with an unctuous base, an odd white pepper, and lemon-poppy component. The color is dark, almost antique gold at this point, but the fruit is citrus-bright. #greco #grecoditufo whoa, now we’re turning golden delicious apples and the citrus is an afterthought #bianco #campania #tufo #tenutaRussoBruno #docg #italianwines #italianwhite — a year ago

Lost a lot in the last year. The nose is mature but vibrant with sweet fruit and nice complexity. The palate has dried out leaving powerful tannins and the evidence of once ripe fruit. #deforville #barbareso #docg #langhe #nebbiolo #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Badia a Passignano Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2005

Date night #ChiantiClassico. The red from #sangiovese grapes was moderately tannic, dry and mid level acidity, with some raspberry notes. A grown-up wine, for those traditional tomato based #Italian pastas. #DOCG — 4 years ago
