It was Weston’s hosting today for the Wednesday Wine Committee and probably the most informative lunch to date. Though everything was tasted “blind” as usual, we were all given a list of grapes to choose from for the whites and the reds, since they were all meant to be very similar.

Debates between calling this the Sangiovese or Nebbiolo. Acidic and lots of tar. Ended up guessing Sangiovese based on the tannic structure of wine number three. ✔️

Wow! This wine is drinking beautifully already but still has a long way to go. 2012 is a good year. Long, long finish.

полный, мощный аромат, темная вишня, сушеный чернослив, старое мягкое дерево. Плотное хорошее тело, аккуратные танины, длинное. 90/100
