Bric dël Fiasc Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

First vinified in 1978, Bric del Fiasc is only produced from the best plots of the South/Southwest Fiasco site in Castiglione Falletto. Pale to medium-ruby, the nose reveals precise aromas of rose and violet paired with orange zest, dried herbs and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied and with zesty high acidity, the palate is dominated by painfully chalky tannins, and I wonder if they will ever fully integrate into the wine. It will be interesting to taste this again in a couple of years, but for the time being, I'm not sold. — 2 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Very nice. Floral grippy. Not way complex but good for the price point. Food wine. — 3 days ago

Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Never would have thought it was a monvigliero. Silky and pliant without that mineral signature. I much prefer Burlotto or Alessandria. Still very nice though! — 18 days ago

Carobric Barolo Nebbiolo 2018

Intense notes of crushed flowers, ripe red and black fruits, grilled herbs, mint and liquorice introduce the 2018 Carobric from Paolo Scavino. The high-quality terroir of the different sites shines through wonderfully and lends this Barolo great focus and tension. Full-bodied, the juicy concentration and seamlessly integrated tannins make it hard to put down the glass. This infant Barolo is drinking exceptionally well today, but will undoubtedly benefit from extended bottle ageing. Drink now until 2038. — 2 days ago

Riserva Pipparello Montefalco Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2016

9.5

From the wine list of an Italian restaurant I wanted to go for a long time, I was thinking about the Quitarelli Valpolicella 2010, but settled on this. And the Somm recommended 16’ over the 12’.

A real beauty. The brightness and elegance from Sangiovese, the heartiness of Montepulciano, and the power and grip of Sangratino all seamlessly blend together.

Very happy with the selection. Extra point for pairing well with a wide range of dishes.

I would be fine with either vintage.

I'm just saying, the list could have been out of date? But I agree, either would have been cool with me.

I do think they had the 12’. They even have the Soldera Pegasos, which only 1 vintage was made. If money is no subject, that would be my pick.

Cerrete Sagrantino di Montefalco 2007

2007. Bottle 794 of 3,933. Followed up the 2007 Pagliaro after a quick decant. Sweeter, darker cherry flavors. Pure fruit in restrained oak. No funk… Tannins were very present, but smooth, and not as drying as the Pagliaro. No hint of the high abv. Like a combo of Pinot Noir and Grenache, which I love! — a month ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2019

Ruby red color with aromas of dark berry fruit, smoke and earthy spices. On the palate this Nebbiolo showed flavors of ripe cherry and plum emerging, with licorice and smoky pepper spice. Fine soft tannins on medium+ finish ending with smoke and earthy character. Nice value! — 17 days ago

Pagliaro Secco Montefalco Sagrantino 2012

Initially served to me double-blind from a decanter. In the glass, the wine appeared a deep ruby/purple color with a near opaque core. There was significant sediment but other than that, there were no other potential indications of age since the color was so ruddy. There was moderate staining and viscosity was medium+/high. The nose was fascinating: bright, powerful ripe cherries, plums, dark chocolate, old leather-bound books, earth, anise, exotic spices and tobacco. The leather, color and sediment had me leaning pretty hard towards a Right Bank Bordeaux from an excellent producer, showing 15-20 age. But I wasn’t yet convinced and then, the palate told a different story. It was fresh and full-bodied. Absolutely packed with fruit and spices. It was bone dry with monumental tannin and acid was easily in the medium+ category. The wine was impeccably balance with elevated alcohol and a forever finish. I was now leaning Italy but where? This was not from Piemonte and I couldn’t think of a wine in Tuscany that would be made quite like this. I was stumped…all I knew is that I was in love whatever this was. Then my buddy said it wasn’t fair because the wine wasn’t technically testable…so he revealed the bottle. Of course it’s “Pagliaro” from Paolo Bea. Swoon! This wine has so 👏🏽 much 👏🏽 soul 👏🏽. My first time enjoying the 2012 in many years and this is in a beautiful spot. A wow wine that will continue to deliver well last 2032. Paired with Morgan Ranch Wagyu burgers and bolognese. Bottle No. 3512/9971. Merry Christmas! — a month ago
