    December 10, 2019 - Excellent wine, but unfortunately paired with an 89 gala San Lorenzo. Red fruits, soft...lacks complexity, but hopefully with age it will blossom.

    December 8, 2019 - We had six reds tonight. This didn’t stand out nor impress. Not sure if it was the wine or the specific bottle.

    December 2, 2019 - Perhaps 9tl5. Soft red fruits. Balanced. 93 Slight smell remained after first pour. Seems to be true of the other Italian I had also at the tasting.
    Black cherry. Dark red fruits all well balanced so that only a little tannin and tartness remain. Tartness is still acid. Pleasant and lively nonetheless. Very similar to a cote de beaune burgundy. Feminine side to gaja. Everything is well integrated. Maybe a little more time in cellar might be useful. 2 years max. Opened for 30-45 mins before serving. Drank over 2 hours.

    November 2, 2019 - White Truffles & Nebbiolo (Chez Nanda): In an amazing spot right now. Youthful fruit but layered with smoke, spice and florals. Bright aromas. So well integrated and balanced. A big, forward wine but everything is in harmony.

    November 2, 2019 - Nebbiolos, white truffles, Volume IV (Chicago, IL): Next to a few Giacosas, it's very clear there are some stylistic differences here. The nose and palate shows some polish, but no bitter oak elements. The ripeness of the fruit makes this a little sweet, and the fruit profile here is unequivocally black. The finish is still not fully resolved, as that's where you pick up just a touch of oak. I preferred this to the Sori San Lorenzo by a bit.
