Community Tasting Note

  • srh Likes this wine:

    December 27, 2019 - Friday Tasting Group: "Killer Bar" (#06 for me) (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Per the contributor, Antonio Galloni, & MC2 Wines (cf. the 11/26/18 TN below), this COULD have been bottled as Amarone, but the producer opted to declassify it.

    N: RIPE berries with spice, orange peel, & something I can't quite ID

    P: Med body; Rndish entry with very NICE, ALMOST swtish frt (approaching threshold R.S.?) met by an astringent pucker which stays in contact with the init frt as it transitions into a LONG, BALANCED, tangy/SWT (45:55) finish to the few, firming dusty tannins. For now & making its 15th... min. 15.5% ABV; My EXC/EXC+ (92-95/100 using that metric). 93 pts Vinous (Galloni, 5/'17). From a producer new to me, but that I've since learned is HIGHLY regarded. [As of late Dec '19, wine-searcher shows several sources from $125-$180].

His son is trying to continue his legacy but Giuseppe was a quirky perfectionist who made wine in a unique way every time. There are a few disciples who worked with him for a period of time out there who sometimes can come close to his level like Dal Forno and Musella But I don’t think anyone in Italy can compare to the uniqueness, longevity and complexity of his wines even his whites.
