Community Tasting Notes 8

    November 17, 2018 - So packed and so delicious. Remarkably approachable and pleasurable for a young Red Label. Young and primary, to be sure, but a no regrets pleasure that shows plenty of Nebbiolo character.

    November 17, 2018 - Nebbiolos, white truffles, Volume III (Chicago, IL): This wine really bothered me. It really had no business being this viscerally delicious. Really, it's a hedonistic wine in the right way. Confected and candied red fruit on the nose, with just a hint of floral perfume behind it, but that candied quality is fairly complex -- raspberries, strawberries, and all those things cooked down with a fair bit of sugar. The palate is sweet and juicy and just a joy to drink. However, I do worry whether this is of the same calibre as, say, that brilliant 1998 Santo Stefano we had at the table. This is clearly not cut from the same cloth, but for drinking now, it's almost a shame to age this!

    May 10, 2018 - Bruno Giacosa Tasting (PWS): Ash and earth, herbal notes, cherry and tobacco elements on the nose - savoury, bright and pretty at the same time. Delicate and delightful on the palate, with acidity giving the wine verve and poise. Lighter style fruit is stretched out into a brilliant length finish. Really approachable, with the savoury elements giving it a dimension of interest early. An awesome showing tonight.

    December 3, 2017 - GRANDI NEBBIOLI DA VINOGODI: Naso dolcioso, caldo, fragoloso, ruffiano ed esplosivo. Ricorda il rosolio e un' infusione di petali caldi che ti accarezzano e ti coccolano.
    La bocca è croccante, un filo ancora asciutta, ma è talmente setosa e accomodante, da far sorridere. La parte dry ed esotica del naso ricordano il Monfortino 2008; la morbidezza ricca di fiori della bocca ricorda la Romanée St. Vivant di Hudelot-Noellat.
    Vino pazzesco, già godibilissimo, e il miglior 2011 assaggiato in Langa.
    Da brivido

    October 24, 2017 - Zachy's Extravaganza (Longview Gallery - Washington, DC): So floral and complex and earthy on the nose with tart, deep fruit and loads of spice. Deep tannins, brisk acidity, structure for aging is amazing. Still so pure and delicious at this young age. My wine of the night.
