Community Tasting Notes (14) Avg Score: 93.5 points

  • TTTG Blind (Piemonte) (Coventry, CT): Very similar to the Costa Russi drank alongside, but slightly better, especially after a day's air. Notes after a six hours decant. Beautiful rich red fruit on the nose; silky, light, very polished frame. Quite young and reserved, but very approachable. Plenty of tannin (med+/high) which are incredibly fine, dusty, and pleasant. Excellent balance. With more air, the nose becomes more pronounced, with dried flowers, cedar, cherry. Modern in style, but sufficiently restrained and very balanced. Certainly approachable now, but still quite youthful. Hold.

  • Piedmont wines at Mike's (Coventry, CT): Absolutely stunning wine. An amazing perfume that builds with air, combining layers of pure red fruit, flamboyant floral and spicy notes, earth and more savoury cedary and tarry elements into a scent that's hard to move away from. There's amazing depth on the palate and a sense of real polish and finesse to the texture with very fine grained tannins, and amazing length. A real wow wine.

  • Sampled 12/1/12. Label, capsule and cork were perfect. Fill was perfect. Color is very dark to its core but a shocking brown at the rim. The wine tasted cooked. Strong acidiuty and bitter metals and minerals completely dominated. Some stewed fruit came through but the really good fruit at the core could only faintly be detected. Down the drain.

  • Decanted and drank over 3 hours. Pungent mix of dark fruit, licorice, spice, wood and some red fruit on the nose. Purple. The palate matched with red and black fruit with very strong medicinal quality on the attack and finish. Others may like this aspect more than I do. Long, lingering finish with plenty of rustic tannin.

  • Super Bowl 2012 (Roswell, GA): Red in color looking a little more youthful. Menthol, licorice, and a mix of red and dark fruit on the nose. Viscous and powerful on the palate with lower acid with cherry fruit continuing on. Balanced and not yet showing its best.

    (Gaja Sori Tildin) had a spinier nose than the Costa Russi with less fruit and more sand, leather and dust. There was still some fatness to the wine, however, and some red fruit, chocolate and black licorice emerged with heavy coaxing. The palate was hotter, more wound, spicier and lingering yet less approachable than the Costa Russi. The acidity was spine tingling, I must admit. This will be a great wine
