Catsup and barbecue sauce on grilled chicken; heavy on the ginger and bursting with peppermint, allspice and peppercorn. Old one here, with brick red looks. Mint tea, gingerbread, ginseng, bay, violet extract, and ribbons of blood orange and clove, tell-tale tar, gum Arabic, and spiced tea cinnamon, orange, and nutmeg. Tastes like the season for every reason! #marcarini #marcarinichinato #chinato #vinoaromatizzato #piemonte #piedmont #chinchonacalisaya #lamorra #italianwine #seasonal #seasonalwine — 6 months ago
Black cherry and violets commingle with red cherry lavender and raspberry in a clean, and enticing nose of fruit and flower. Blueberry, blackberry and cassis are extras, but this is not the fruit bomb the description conjures. There is something light, sunny and natural about the whole; wisps of sweet tobacco and vanilla blossom undulate on a forest and mushroom motif that feels springy, panoramic and breezy. The palate boasts dried cranberries, tangy raspberry and plump black cherry. Thyme a cinnamon dusting and the aforementioned tobacco, now a fine, smoky cigar. This one is gorgeous, and a testament to the estate. Ripe and juicy, but the oak is in check. Bravo! .

I was surprised to find this wine as evolved as it was. These wines are definitely made in a contemporary style and should not be cellared for more than 10 years. It was still good and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but there were notes of oxidation. #nebbiolo #barolo #piemonte — 10 months ago
Vintage 2005 / Noble and classic smell from this #nebbiolo wine from #piemonte. Minerality and high acidity. A seductive wine without that creepy earthiness I dislike. Tasted blind I did not recognise this as nebbiolo. It is time to revise my opinion about #Barolo. — 3 years ago
