  • 2015 Graci Etna Arcuria

    Clear pale garnet

    Vanilla
    Butterscotch
    Red fruit, cherry pie? cooked plums? Raisins, figs.

    Dry
    Red fruit character, stewed, almost dried
    Med+ tannins: fine grained
    Med+ acid
    Med body
    Med alcohol
    Short finish

    Interestingly developed - seems like a lot of winemaking at this point. Probably some new French oak, definitely MLF.

  • 2016 Nervi-Conterno Gattinara

    Clear pale garnet

    On the nose:
    first impressions - horse poop, earth, blackcurrant cola
    Plums
    Spice
    Savory - leather, cured meat
    Mineral - slate? Dusty...

    Dry
    Plums
    Med+ body
    Med+ acid
    Med+ alcohol
    Med+ tannins - fine and grippy
    Med+ finish

    Overall a well made wine - no obvious flaws. Drinkable now b could go another 5-10 years i think. Initial integration of fruit and tannins is underway, secondary characters are quite nice. Good but not magical - not yet.

    Personal thoughts - good but don't really like this more muscular style of nebbiolo. Wondering if more bottle age will tone it down? (Probably unlikely)

    Edit: other tasters noted red fruit and floral notes. I get the floral part but can't say I'm getting red fruit on this bottle. Weird.
