Delicious. Medium bodied. Roses, tar, dried red fruits, berries, spicecake. Lovely tannin.
“Albe” means “dawns” in Italian as this wine is sourced from three high-elevation sites that experience several dawns. A killer value from this producer. Drink or hold.

Very solid. 18 yet again fails to be as bad as critics want it to be. Had to order this because of a corked 2017 Podere Forte Melo which stung but is all in the game.

As good as Barolo gets for $34. Opened all day, excellent with mushroom Risotto.
