Community Tasting Notes 4

    August 9, 2018 - Pop and pour. Bright ruby-garnet color. Gorgeous perfume of violets and rose hips. In the mouth, elegant fresh red fruit (raspberries, plums). Long and tasty. Not much tannin showing at this point.
    Open 4 hours: The perfume is just stunning. Light, elegant, with tannins present on the finish, but not overpowering. A beautiful wine, but not a long ager, I think. 92-93

    May 10, 2018 - Bruno Giacosa Tasting (PWS): Cherry and charcoal, graphite and slate, and expressive violet florals give this an immediate appeal. Delightful on the palate, had plenty of red fruit character and lift but also the more serious savoury and structured side to it. Time will definitely be a friend to this wine, but it does have something to say for itself now as well.

    September 30, 2017 - Extremely tight and unyielding on day one and no pleasure derived. Day two it showed some florals and red fruits but still remained compact and sinewy with a slightly astringent finish.

    May 23, 2017 - Day 2 in Piedmont (Giacosa, Conterno, & Cavallotto) (Piedmont, Italy): Another youthful wine to the point of austerity. It had a core of tightly wound cherry, roses, & earth. The tannins, though...so, so, so, tannic. For me, the tannins were distracting to the point of being unenjoyable.
