    November 26, 2019 - Thanksgiving week in Piemonte; 11/22/2019-11/30/2019 (Milan, Barolo, Alba, Barbaresco): From the wine list at Trattoria della Posta. Wow this was just a beauty! With some fierce competition from the '12 Bartolo Mascarello - this still came through as the wine of the meal and probably the trip. Just firing on all cylinders - open and elegant. I loved the minerality that came through on the finish that was very long. Silky and elegant mouthfeel - lovely!

    November 26, 2019 - Piedmont II - better and learnings; 11/23/2019-11/29/2019 (Barolo, Alba, others): Bucket list for me and so when I saw it at a not totally ridiculous tariff we figured we were up for a bit of a splurge. It was completely worth it. The elegance in this wine is just up another level. It's most driven by the mineral and it's funny how there's almost that sea floor that they talk about that you can actually taste a bit in this wine. Darker fruits. Great acid. And just perfectly precise. To me could easily be the wine of the trip.

    April 26, 2019 - From Magnum. Massive wine. Enormous tannins. Monica Belluci if the wine was a women. Georgeous and gets more beautiful with age. Dark red and black fruits. Forest floor with violets and peach notes. Just beautiful. I bought on a trip to London a year ago.

    June 12, 2018 - Barrel and Bottle Tasting with Luca Roagna (Roagna Winery): Amazing. The nose was dark yet perfumed with a mix of red and black fruits, as notes of dried fall leaves, minerals, black soil, crushed sea shell, apricot, and a hint of lemon zest completed the picture. On the palate, I found silky, deep textures with dark red fruits, yet structured and refined from start to finish, flexing its 2006 tannins. It was so long and intense through the finish, amazing in its balance yet severe with its structure, as dried red fruits lingered long. This is a wine for the ages.

    May 5, 2016 - The layered nose was not only intense but lifted and floral, showing cherry, dried leaves, roses, dusty soil, and crushed stone. It was structured on the palate with brilliant cherry fruits, dusty spice and inner floral tones. It filled the senses with masses of refined Nebbiolo perfume and finished fresh with a vibrant thrust of dried cherry and minerals. This wine should make old bones, the only question is how long before its fine-grain tannins begin to soften.
