2013 hoists this producer stratospherically. Great wine with integrated tannins. Meaty nose of cured and sliced roast beef and black pepper; tinged brown-brick from its 10 year slumber; cigar wrap, and roulade, graphite and smoke, and just barely, dried, black mushroom and rose petal. The palate is lush. Cherry soft, raspberry reduction, shows round but pronounced tannic dunes. Our tar is integrated, chicory peeks forth, the pepper submerged in a perfect expression of varietal and vintage. Solid work Arpatin (winks at Mother Nature)!

Med concentration with a pale ruby core and violet rim. Med + intensity with a decent amount of alcohol upfront. Med complexity showing ripe red and blue fruit. Cherry, boysenberry, crushed stones, stems, and purple flowers. Firm structure with med + tannins and acid. Full body. Less complex on the palate showing less fruit which is overwhelmed by the structure. Okay length. Definitely a food wine. I'll revisit in a year. #brunogiacosa #dolcetto #alba #piedmont #italy #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago
Raspberry, dried blackberry and cedar form a distinct potpourri when considered with the dried rose petal and orange bitters. There is a fleeting fruitiness that approaches strawberries dropped into a coniferous fire. Lovely, if firm tannins support a whale of a wine. Amazing depth with Roobios tea leafs, tobacco, graphite, bay leaf, bing cherry, dried black cherry and black currants on carbon paper and campfire ash, driven deep into a charred wormwood and dusty schist. This is an incredible Nebbiolo that over-delivers in every sense! #piedmontesewines #nebbiolo #nebbiololover #nebbiololife #nebbiolodalba #alba #Demarie #piedmont #babybarolo #italianred #Italianwine — 6 years ago
Clear ruby; plum, cherry, boysenberry, forest on a warmer day; cedar notes. Palate- red fruit, tart, initial bang! Fresh then subsides, to hints of woody mint. Medium A, T, B and L. The acidity, tannin and fruit profile are well integrated. Better with food, also enjoyed with 75% chocolate #thelatestbatch #dolcetto #alba — 6 years ago
