Rosso del Bepi Veneto Corvina Blend 1994

Basically Amarone, “Rosso del Bepi” is only made when the quality isn’t quite high enough to bottle their Amarone della Valpolicella Classico. If it’s a bad vintage all together, neither wine are made. This bottle was made when “Bepi” was still involved in the winemaking process. Poured into a decanter about an hour before service. Cork was perfect. The nose? Amongst the most fascinating I have ever encountered from a red wine: black desiccated fruit, beef broth, cloves, well conditioned leather, old Christmas candle, Digestive biscuits, like I’m riding in my grandma’s 1979 Buick Regal, potpourri, and just a kiss of VA. It’s no less exciting on the palate. The dark desiccated fruit is confirmed and accompanied by ginger, pomegranate, Montmorency cherry, and spices. The wine is dry and longer than a youth dance recital. This is a killer example of a well-aged wine from Veneto from an absolutely legendary producer. Over the six hours we had this in the decanter, it continued to open and deliver excitement like Patrick Mahomes carving up a defense. I’m so grateful to have more of this wine. Drink now with a short decant. Properly stored examples should drink well over the next 10 years.

Stella di Campalto Podere San Giuseppe

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

My favorite expression of Sangiovese. It’s amazing what Stella can do in warm vintages. 2011 Riserva is fabulous tonight, with soaring aromatics, stunning elegance and purity and fantastic intensity without any sense of weight. It’s fresh, floral and red fruited with complex layers of violets, forest leaves and exotic spice. The palate is juicy and vibrant with a silky texture, fine grained tannins and a long mineral inflicted finale that leaves behind hardly any warmth. Love these wines. Brunello for the Burgundy lover. — a month ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Powerful, damp forest floor and flowering rosemary, and even sage. Of the earth. From magnum. Red cherry and pomegranate, salty and even savory. Needs time. Lovely. — 5 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 1958

Tasted blind. Dark tawny, opaque. Old wine nose with notes of dark fruit, chicory, hazelnut and vanilla. Like earlier in the day, the age of this and the notes mean it could be anything. I go with a guess of 50's Rioja and others are in similar areas. Although this never showed the old Italian barolo descriptors you'd correlate with it, this was a very well made wine and certainly better than the 64 before it. — a month ago
