Big and powerful, but at the same time lacking in fruit concentration. Strange

Veldig fin og klassisk Barolo. Fortsatt ung men tilgjengelig med lufting. Ellers samsvarer den med tidligere notat.

An off bottle. Reductive upon opening. Decanted several hours, and it got better. But the reductive aromas didn’t go away.

Short note from memory

Fresh and elegant Barbera with brilliant cherry fruit. Balanced and long.

What a potential! Still a baby, but coming to life after a couple of hours in the decanter.

Lengthy decant or keep off!

Elegant and powerful wine from Vittoria in the south of Sicily. Drinking perfectly now. Go, Arianna, go!

Rich, ripe and full, yet structured, fresh and balanced. Drinking nicely now, but will benefit from cellaring. 90p, for now.

In a nice place at the moment. Needs an hour to come together. Very peasant indeed.

Straight forward Rioja, on it’s way down. Pleasant enough, but not interesting.

Obviously a great wine, but not an optimal bottle. Tired and dried out fruit. A pity, since this was my only bottle.

Småfet med briljant syre. Uttalt mineralitet med hint av petroleum. Eller godt med lime og grønne epler. Fin fylde og goood lengde.

Again a nice showing from this wine. It has gained more complexity since my last bottle four years ago.

Decanted 3 hrs and then drunk over two evenings

App: deep purple red
Aroma: cherries, licorice, tar, noble wood, wet stone and minerals, warm pine forest...
Full-bodied with brilliant acidity and firm and gripping tannins. What a great structure! Potent and concentrated fruit.
Lingering finish.

Obviously young and full of potential. Both the intense fruit and great structure promises a long life. 94p for now, with a much higher potential (96-97).

Very nice, available, fruity and good value Pinot.

Very fruity with raspberries, strawberries, spice, flowers and hints of wood. Nice concentration and acidity, low tannins. Good length.

Decanted 2 hrs

Fruity with nice concentration. Lively acidity and round tannins. Good length.

Far from open and available. Decant for several hrs, or let it sleep for some years.

An enigma. Still after lengthy decant and even on day two there was not much to enjoy. Great structure, but muted fruit. Not much else. Can it be in phase?

Opened my crate of 6 bottles tonight; first one corked, second one muted. Well... Leaves you wondering. Gonna open a third one in a while. For now, I don´t dare...

Fruktig og fin, med deilig bringebærfrukt. Litt blomster og forsiktig fat. Middels fyldig med finfin syre og lette tanniner. Konsentrert frukt og god lengde. God pinot til rett over 300-lappen!

Yes! The two previous bottles were great, but could still benefit from more cellar time. But this one was perfect! Immediately available, and opened up quickly. Perfect balance and great length. Aromas and taste consistent with previous note. Last bottle. Great wine!

Intriguing nose with black currants, leather, stable, spice and wood. Medium bodied+ with nice acidity and solid tannins. Concentrated and long. Very nice indeed, and super value!

App: brick-red
Aroma: licorice, noble wood, leather, tar, forest floor, tiny hint of dried fruit and stable (but in a good way)
Medium-bodied with excellent acidity and mature, but still supporting tannins. Sweet’n’sour and cool on the palate. Elegant with persistent length and nice sweetness in the finish.

Finally a really good bottle! Have had five of this one, and this was the best. And last.. :/

Dark and dense purple red. Aroma of chunky dark cherries, leather, noble wood, licorice, tar, flowers and spice. ,
Medium-bodied+ with brilliant acidity and very discrete tannins. Excellent length.

Impressive and complex barbera, still going strong at 15 yrs. The wizard of Monforte! 93p

Bravissimo!

Mørk og tett. Mørk frukt med litt lær og krydder. Pent fyldig, syrlig og strukturert, uten at tanninene dominerer. Super lengde med lett sødmefull avslutning. Strålende til marmorert entrecote med god olje.

Utrolig presis, konsentrert og frisk Premier Cru fra Dauvissat. Supermineralsk, med sitron, grønne epler. Fin balanse og veldig god lengde. Ikle i nærheten av å være sliten.

Short note.

Decanted three hours, which it needed.

Medium-bodied+ with good acidity and firm tannins. Dark and concentrated fruit. Great structure. Long.

Still very, very young. Keep or do lengthy decant.

Mitt Toscana IGT (ren sangiovese) selektert av Dag Tjersland (Baltazar) er et kupp til 255,- ny årgang 2008 som erstatter 2006. Pent moden, men slett ikke gammel IGT fra Castell’in Villa. Rett og slett nyyydelig! Trives godt sammen med villsvinpølse og Toma di Grotta

Trengt litt luft for å komme i vater. Pent fyldig, frisk og konsentrert med etterhvert fint fatpreg. Sistnevnte tok litt tid. Sitrus, epler og litt stikkelsbær. Laaaaang

Beginning maturity on this one, but still with loads of structure. No rush.

Classic Nebbiolo with nice fruit, concentration and length.

Very nice, indeed!

Still a baby, of course, but already very accessible. Dark, dark fruit, concentrated and structured. Long.

Jada, etter er par timer blir det skikkelig liv. Stor og fruktig, med stram struktur. Gooooood lengde. Fortsatt litt ren kirsebærfrukt, men akkompagnert av lær, jord, sopp. skikkelig godt, men fortsatt ungt.

Wow, for en Barolo! Cavalotto leverer virkelig i 2016. Ekstremt presis, fokusert og lang. Ung som f, så klart, men viser seg virkelig frem etter 3-4 t med luft. Frem kryper typiske Nebbioloaromaer som tjære, lakris, te, roser, lott jord i tillegg til den rene frukten av kirsebær og litt mørkere bær. Middels fyldig+ med strålende syre og etterhvert stramme, men ikke håpløst tøffe tanniner. Utmerket balanse og balanse og enorm lengde.
