N.V. Barbolini Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro Lancillotto

I want to like Lambrusco (it seems the urbane thing to do) and this is my first effort, but I don’t like this wine. Grapey, thin, and unsavory. Like a blend of soda water and grape syrup. In fairness, one reviewer found bliss in pairing a Lambrusco with a simple dish of hot pasta in a marinara sauce and so that’s what I tried. I think that not a good combo, but that this wine on its own as an aperitif on a hot summer day could be very refreshing

Argilla e mare: Rimini Sangiovese (S. Giovanni in Marignano): Very particular at nose: green notes come along with the red fruit. Clear iron note.
At taste very good acidity and high minerality overpassing a light fruit..
Bitter ending

Bordeaux Vinexpo 2013 (Saint Estephe/Sauternes/Pomerol) (Bordeaux (F)): Nice, with typic hints, both at nose and taste, but a bit without grace in the ending, with some harsh tannins.

    The note (and rating) strictly refers to the bottle as tasted; that particular bottle in that moment.
    I personally think that the wine (if properly cellared) will get much better, and other CT community notes are significant.
    I will wait for your note in the 20's!

Sassicaia! (Roma - Hilton Cavalieri): The climate season was regular.
Strange vintage, different from the others.
Iron powder and wet soil at the beginning, iodine.
Coherent at taste, with a lond mineral finish. ***

Benvenuto Brunello 2006 premiére (30 TN inside!!) (Montalcino (Si)): Weak nose. Nice entry in mouth, but decaying fast. [IV: 92]

    I was referring decaying fast in mouth, not persistent

Sometimes one's taste develops over the years - or maybe it is that some early enthusiasm wears off. This wine - which we initially were very impressed with - does not maintain that position when revisited some years later. It is now mature, with the tannins fully melted. Good acidity and fruit. But, unfortunately, the tar (or smoke) is for our current taste too overwhelming and onedimensional. Sorry, but the Medocs have nothing to fear from this style.
