  • Decanted one hour and drank over another hour paired with Veal Saltimbocca. Nose is classic Old School Italy. Light color in the Grassl Bordeaux glass reminds me of Pinot Noir. Medium weight, still tannic with sour cherry, tobacco, forest floor and pine needles. Went great with food. Probably not as great by itself. Not as structured or full as Montefico which is the best 15 Produttori Riserva I’ve tried so far. This is a bit more feminine but solid. Will improve with more bottle time as tannins relax more.

  • I would not drink this now. This is my second bottle and second disappointment. I cannot reconcile this with the 97 point review from KO for Wine Enthusiast. Wine in bond until last year, stored well since and no defects, just seems thin & one dimensional. The silky Nebbiolo mouthfeel is the only major positive today. A little floral quality emerged (decanted 3 hours b4 lunch) as we got to end of bottle, shared by 4 of us over lunch. I note a Vinous review from 2020 that said the wine was starting to shut down. I would have thought the wine would be through that phase by now but doesn’t feel like it (and this was entirely consistent with first bottle). Tannins present although not overwhelming, but I suspect this has a powerful underlying structure. Therefore I hope the wine will evolve considerably over time and grow into its very positive reviews. I’ll wait at least a few more years, if not more, before seeing if that might be the case.

  • Most likely tunnel. I think there is more fruit ready to pop in a few years. Very fresh still. Hold.

  • 2015 Produttori & Friends (Nella Kitchen & Bar, Los Olivos, CA): Muted raspberry and licorice aromatics on the shy nose. Medium bodied.
    Dark fruit. Some earth and iron. Restrained and tannic, clearly in need of more aeration, or better yet more bottle age. Nonetheless elevated nicely accompanying the food. Very long finish.
