Italy: Piedmont

1998 Molino Barolo $45
Typical La Morra Perfumed nose of flowers (rose and lavendar?), the tannins have really integrated well and the wine is showing beautifully. Great mix of tart bing cherry and a gravely-leather character. Long finish and and spicy retro-gusto.

2004 Sottimano Lange Nebbiolo $23
This really is a Baby Barolo. Wonderful nose of dark cherry, dried roses and fall leaves; medium tannins lift the fruit in mouth even as they still need some protein. Gravely pockets, more dark cherry. Wondeful fo rhte price.

1996 Cavallotto Barolo 'Bricco Boschis'
I'm writing this about a week later and I still have the memory o fthe wine coming to my nose. Swirls and complex layers of red fruit, roses, and eucalyptis. A great year to drink now while you wait for your amazing 2001's to emerge. The eucalyptis really binded the nose's tones which were both high tone as a flute and low as a cello. We started the meal off with the main course and then went to a white to change things up. The tannins, integrated but still present, became intermittedly silky and tea tannin like, accompanied by the trumpet mushroom risotto.

2005 Vietti Roero Arneis

Subtle and intriuing nose of flower and flower seeds. Light body with good acidity. Wonderful!

2003 Vietti Lange Nebbiolo $20
Everyone knows by now that '03 was a hot year in Italy but this is a great Nebbiolo to try if you haven't gotten into this amazing grape yet. this is enrty-level (and priced) with grapes legally allowed from anywhere in the Langhe. Warm ripe nose of black fruit and roses with tannins that would edge away nicely with some brasato.
