Community Tasting Notes 5

    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.

    March 4, 2016 - BYO Italian Wines (Enomania): Even though it had been decanted for quite a while, it was still harsh initially. There was lovely florality and fruit but also a huge acidity and harsh tannins.
    As it got more time in the glass and warmed up a little bit, it started to pick up more fruit and depth while mellowing out the tannins a little bit.
    Overall an impressive wine with a solid and charming intensity. But, it still needs a lot more time to open more up but there is good potential here.
    Still worth drinking now, but the wine has a potential of improving a lot with time.

    November 27, 2015 - UN GIOVEDI IN LANGA: Tasting at the domaine. Etereo più possente e compresso. Marasche infossate nella terra scura. Nonostante i 9 anni, non c' è accenno di terziarizzazione: il frutto scuro pulsa ancora nel nucleo di questo carro-armato di struttura e volume. Finale masticabile alla liquirizia nera e lonvevità incalcolabile. Ancora un spreco ora.
