Off the list at Donato Enoteca in Redwood City. Serviceable young Barolo to go with our white truffle focused lunch. Old school in style, very open for business from the get go.

Very closed right now but you can tell the potential of a very refined Brunate

WOAH. Exceeded expectations by far. Drunk in celebration of my roommates becoming master sommeliers!

2008 vintage. Showing some good evolution less than 10 years after harvest. Vibrant color and striking clarity. Beautiful rose bouquet with creosote. Very broad and expansive on the palate with polished tannins, burst of sour cherry, orange peel on mid palate finishing with fennel and mint. Beautiful wine with lovely brightness and high tension. This will open up tremendously after some air- I recommend trying this on the 2nd day or night. Fit to cellar for another decade, quite easily.

Paola has created a great Brunate in ‘14. Wines from here can be too heavy and intense, but here all’s in place. Impressive considering the vintage, offering tell tale varietal character.
