Holy Fuck. This is why I’m in the wine business.
Goosebumps immediately. A field of the prettiest roses you’ve ever smelled in your life, strawberry, glycerin, saddle leather, hay, pencil shavings, dry mustard, toast and fine minerals on the gorgeous, gorgeous nose. I could smell this all day. Scents transition seamlessly to the palate with fresh plum, tobacco leaf, black tea, pepper and spice flavors supporting. Finishes dry, savory, complex and meaty with waves of plum, rare beef, truffle, glycerin, spice and fine minerals. I haven’t had a wine experience like this in a while, but it’s why I love being in the business. Today is a rare treat; this wine is fucking amazing. 100% Nebbiolo. $49.99
100% Sangiovese. Warm and meaty on the nose with bright dark cherry, leather, hay, white flowers and savory spices. Supple up front with fine minerals supporting. Finishes dry with orange tea, cherry and minerals carrying on. Quite delicious, and a savory, substantial wine for $20.
