    August 16, 2019 - Heat damaged or OTH. Very ripe / roasted flavors. Not right. Would have never called this a Giacosa in a blind tasting format.

    December 1, 2018 - Burgs, Rhones, Piedmont, and Krug: Not bad, but riper than I’d like bordering on overripe and lacking depth and persistence.

    November 22, 2018 - Patience has been rewarded with a lovely, silky smooth and seductive Nebbiolo that has been aged to perfection. The color is a brownish maroon with impressive legs on the my glass. The nose is dried begonias and dark cherries with a hint of hay. The tongue is greeted with at least three layers of tastes that is the hallmark of great winecraft (my word, see ‘witchcraft’). I get in succession: dried red fruits, strawberries tobacco, and a a licorice finish. I need to find another bottle of this!

    November 9, 2018 - Interesting debate with the group in this blind tasting. Some thought Brunello. However, the nose is classic Nebbiolo. Where it got confusing was the tannin was completely resolved. Fully mature, drink up. Also, I recommend decanting as this is throwing lots of sediment.

    October 31, 2018 - Wonderful drink. Nose is soft tar and tobacco and savory herbs. Palate is dark nebbiolo fruitiness with a background of sweetness, but a stiff bit of dry tartness as well. Beautifully balanced and flavorful. Good big hit of tannic notes that hit bigger over time. Has lots of legs.
