Lapideus Umbria Bianco Trebbiano 2017

2017. We passed on dessert to have another wine with a cheese plate. Maybe not as complex as other Bea skin contact wines I’ve had, but that may have been a good thing at this point in our meal. We all enjoyed it! — 20 days ago

Pagliaro Secco Montefalco Sagrantino 2016

Delicious, full-bodied but not spicy, stood up to pasta wonderfully. Slightly chilled and decanted. Wonderful CDP alternative. — 2 months ago

Riserva Pipparello Montefalco Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2008

Absolutely awesome on the pop and pour and just built up steam from there. The 2008 “Pipparello” is looking youthful at 14 years with a deep garnet color and opaque core. Loads of sediment though. On the nose, notes of dark cherry cordial, salmiakki, and fennel. The nose is ever so slightly volatile but not expecting a little of that from Bea would be unrealistic. On the palate, red bramble and blackberry preserves and all the near eastern spices you could want. Medium+ across the board; tannin, acid and alcohol. Incredible finish that is dry and lasts forever. As ever with the wines of Paolo and Giampiero; this is a wine with so much soul. In a fabulous place right now but will drink well through 2032. Bottle No. 3016/6633. — a month ago

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

The 4th wine at the Downs Club Italian Dinner. Brief notes - from the cool wet 2014 vintage in Barolo, saved somewhat by the terroir of the famous Cannubi vineyard. Planted 1946. Not your normal high acid, high tannin Barolo. Menthol/camphor notes, herbal, red fruited, very savoury dry tannins. — a month ago

Cerrete Sagrantino di Montefalco 2010

Big wine. Still dominating all foods on day three. Nearly oxidative, a pleasant dusty-ness evokes my grandmother’s cedar jewelry box. — 3 months ago
