|Winery:||La cantina Pizzolato|
Quite complex on the nose with an interesting array of Zelten (an italian fruit bread with pine nuts, dried fruits and walnuts), herb, strong almond and yeasty aromas over sweet pear and almost buttery apricot fruit. A bit sweet on entry with good bala...

Almost a touch of gooseberry on the nose, with a low core of pear fruit, honeycomb almond, herb and a touch of Band-Aid. Nice cut on entry. This is light-bodied and fresh with a nice core of earthy pear and apple fruit, tinged with mineral and bitter a...

....una delle grandi soddisfazioni/"perversioni" di un Enoappassionato, è quella di conservare i vini per riassaggiarli col tempo. Ci piace verificarne l'evoluzione, riscontrarne la tenuta. Succede a volte per caso, ci si dimentica la bottigllia in fon...

Dry and fruity. This is a really good Barbera that one can get at Rossmann drogeries in Germany. It is a pleasure to drink. I will have to get more, and maybe even send some back to the states with me.

Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More
We tend to spend an awful lot of our time running around looking for things. We look for the greatest wines, within our budgets of course, and we look for the perfect wine for ribs, greek salad, or whatever it is we like to eat, and we seek out the greatest value wines on a regular basis. That last search can a get a little silly. Often we’re lo... Read More
Time to do a little cellar cleaning and what better way to start than with the odds and ends of Italian wines that have been building up in the basement. Sadly theres no real cohesive theme here, though a few varieties do appear more than once among the tasting notes that follow. There’s not even a pricing paradigm that’s useful here, though mo...

So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More
In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More
While this tasting predates my tasting of 1980 Barolo by more than a year, I have been moved by the performance of those wines to publish these notes. As much a surprise as the 1980 horizontal, though for entirely different reasons, this is the tasting that set my expectations for the 1980 so terribly low. Prior to both tastings I had had enough...

Sweetish fruity front notes and on the palate. A little bubbles throughout. Nice wine except I tasted an earthy? aftertaste that didn't quite belong..or seem to blend well with the tastes going on with the wine... Read More
It’s a great thing when things just come together. Earlier this year I had planned a trip to California to do some tasting but it had to be postponed. When I went to reschedule I noticed a thread in the Snooth Forum that was looking for people to join in a West Coast Pinot Noir Throw Down. I wasn’t sure what exactly that entailed but I am alway...

I have a good memory and as with most people it is particularly astute when recorded painful moments in one’s life. Take for example 1994, when I finally broke into my stash of benchmark 1982 Barolo. We’re talking Marcarini, and Cascina Francia, Monprivato and Vietti. There were six bottles in all, and I carefully decanted them before cooking di... Read More
