Community Tasting Notes 14

  • Kemo Sabe Likes this wine: 96 points

    February 2, 2019 - Opened and decanted 3 hours prior to decanting back into the bottle for transport to La Festa 2019. Winner in the Monfortino flight of 61/64/67. Great development, full resolved but still so much pleasure and not in decline at all. Leather, saddle, umami, sweetness. Good perfume on the nose. Great length and finish.

  • Boone's Farm Likes this wine: 95 points

    December 10, 2017 - This is a grand wine. Full bodied, some volatile acidity, utterly elegant and balanced, amazingly log on the palate. Forest floor, mushrooms, earth, mineral, raspberry, cherry, and blackberry. Just a great wine.

    October 22, 2017 - Big 50 lunch (Mi Casa): Pop and pour in the morning. Tired and maderized. Chestnut, roasted fruit, remnants of dry cherry, strong va and madeira. Six hours later, not much improvement.

    May 23, 2017 - Day 2 in Piedmont (Giacosa, Conterno, & Cavallotto) (Piedmont, Italy): Carried over from the United States to open with Roberto Conterno. Unfortunately, this was an off bottle...I think Roberto commented that based on the taste it must have been heat damaged at some point.
