Q. W. R.: 1998 Montiverdi Ventesimo Chianti Classico Riserva

Really impressed with this - 2011 Cascina Chicco Roero Riserva Valmaggiore

It’s not often (enough!) that I’ve got a glass of wine that makes me repeat, like a broken record (dating myself here, oh well) exclamations, like wow!, and fantastic!, or really?, that’s amazing!; this was one of those wines/experiences. 488 more words

Barolo, Riserva, Bel Colle Montvigliero, Barolo DOCG, Italia, 2004, 14% abv

We opened this wine at 12 years old on November 2016, at the end of its recommended drinking window (2010-2016).

Although initially worried we’d missed the boat, we were relieved to find an elegantly developed drink. 87 more words
