    August 16, 2015 - PnP
    Nose out of the gate is old school, sweaty leather, tobacco, some olive brine too. Tannin is noticeable but not overwhelming, and crisp acidity which I like. Palate opens with red cherries, stewed strawberries, chewy liquorice and some menthol notes, very savoury. I would hold this 2-3 more years but this is a food wine for life I feel.

    May 30, 2015 - We sipped at Angelini's at the Kowloon Shangri-Law, Hong Kong. We are big fans of La Spinetta. When we visited, we learned of the importance of the name Pin, which was the nickname for their father. A most pleasant Barbera and Nebbiolo blend at super value price. Our friends, who had never tried, were impressed.

    December 23, 2014 - Day 1: I really don't like this wine. No nose, no sweetness but a lot of acidity :-(
    Day 2: Tasted the rest of the bottle opened yesterday and found a completly different wine. Nose now with dark berries, tobacco and english liqourice. The tast with some sweetness. Still some acidity but now more balanced.
    All in all the wine is way to young now - will wait another 5 years before I will open the next bottle

    February 11, 2014 - Light garnet color.
    Scent of dark cherries, tobacco and violets. Parfumed.
    Full, very nice tannins. Taste of dark berries, almond and tobacco. Long and very clear aftertaste of violets with a grassy note - like fine olive oil.
    A very pleaseant wine that is good for drinking now but will certainly last a couple of years.

    December 30, 2013 - Wine Koop in Umeå flexing early muscles (Hemmavid (Umeå, North of Sweden)): Today: acids overtake whatever pleasures may be here. Quite discomforting and underwhelming, at least for our expectations.
    Will not be buying any more btls of this thin and just barely "good" wine.
    One btl to go, hoping for the best in circa 2023...
    Rather lactic showing this evening...

    *update*
    On day two, it had beefed up a little bit, but acids are still sharp and way too exaggerated for our plates. Dikeskörning...
