This superlative food wine is all about the bright cherry and blueberry fruits. The oak is nicely restrained and there’s a bit more sweetness to the finish than the sip. Bellissimo!

So here is the thing. Mr A. Scott is right. He did not say it in so many words - i guess he wants to clear out T.J.’s. But this wine which can be awful in some years is right on and for 15$ buy it by the case. The classic Barolo flavors one would expect + surprisingly anise on the nose and in the glass. Tons of tannins which could turn off for the usual crowd. But this is actually very very good for what it is. Unbeatable at this price. A miracle.

2019 vintage. Picked up at Trader Joe’s-La Mesa, CA. $14.99. Popped and poured without any down time. This came out swinging. Great, expressive nose of the usuals-like tar, rose petals and slightly tart cherry-with a brushy, decaying leaves undercurrent. Medium body. Lacking the unbridled power of the top Barolo efforts on the back end but it was still a 25+ seconds finish with a dusting of cracked black pepper regardless. Expected a lot less and received much more. Very pleasant balance of fruit and tannins currently without any particular component/moment stealing the show. Not to be dismissed, intro and mid-palates amply represented. Will go back this week for more. 14% ABV. 1.23.24.

Mazzaro $?
Tart, tannic, cherry, woody.
Was good with steaks, little heavy by itself

Bought at Trader Joe's. A pretty good deal for the price. "A rich and complex red wine. Powerful black cherry and plum fruit dominate the palate, supported by fine nutty oak flavors. Dry and with well integrated tannins."
