Cà dei Frati

Brolettino Lugana Turbiana 2018

Finish is so interesting. Almost bitter. Smells and tastes apple-y and sweet. Finishes citrus and bitter. Smells like grapefruit as it opens up — a month ago

Le Tense Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2019

A bit reductive upon opnening but quickly shows dusty, crushed cherries, a hint of tobacco, a whiff of leather with a pinch of fresh herbs.
Light yet punchy on the palate with crunchy tannins, racy, juicy cherry acidity and a long savoury finish.
The 13.5% alc sticks slightly out yet this is still delightful & highly drinkable.

First had this in Bellagio, Italy and loved it so much got a case sent back a case. I’ll let most of the bottles age, but could not resist opening a few. So good. — a month ago

Perfect venue for “Thanksgiving. . . .with Family”!! Beats the tollbooth, though!!

Rosso di Valtellina Chiavennasca 2020

Light in colour yet still with all the Nebbiolo beauty.
Dusty crunchy, cherries, very floral, a pinch of spice & a whiff of leather. Fresh, lively, emoticons. Brilliant energy.
On the palate this is on the lighter side, with a proper Nebbiolo tannins and bright acidity.
This is absolutely lovely and so drinkable, even so young and w/o decanting.

Not Barbaresco, this is Valtellina (Lombardy) and the village/region is Grumello.
