Community Tasting Notes 1

    January 2, 2019 - Dinner at Osteria taStè, Barbaresco: We were given this bottle by a friend and, to be honest, I did not hold out great hopes for it. But I was surprised by the pleasure that was still to be found in this modest, 50 year old bottling. Bronze colour with (surprisingly) no sediment. An endearing, fragile bouquet. “A fragrant red fruit character”, said Thierry. Or “strawberries in the forest”, as someone said. Also, lots of citrus (“blood orange” was Jeffrey’s descriptor). In the mouth, to be honest, the fruit had slipped quite a way, making the acids over-prominent. However, it was, I thought, an amazing wine. Fresh, the wine was still very much alive. Like the Produttori, it was a simple, honest and humble wine (I didn’t see the evidence of any overt ‘winemaking’ here). Very evolved. Earthy with tobacco, fallen autumn leaves, dried porcini and dried red fruit.
