Italian Reds 

 

Piedmont

2012 Podere Ruggeri Corsini ‘Bricco San Pietro’, Barolo DOCG     "Medium to full bodied, plump and tannic, yet with succulence of cherry fruit and almost a chocolate almond thing going on, freshness and a touch of orange peel, slick of sticky tannin on a long finish. Power with restraint. This is a very good bottle of Barolo" - The Wine Front, 93+ points   $84.95 per bottle

2013 Podere Ruggeri Corsini Langhe Nebbiolo     "It's a bit of a brute, for sure, but gee you're getting a lot of Nebbiolo for your money here. Dark cherry, liquorice, dusting of pepper and sweet spices, new leather, dried mint and flowers. It's full bodied, packed with spiced red and black fruit and inky black tea tannin, keeps fresh and tight, even more so with clean minerally acidity, and finishes long with strawberry, cherry and that potpourri perfume. And of course a mudslide of delicious grainy tannin. Throw it into a decanter now, or leave it for up to a decade. It's rugged, but very good" - The Wine Front, 93 points   $39.95 per bottle

Still very young. Very lovely, long finish. A very fine example" - Clive Coates; "Voerzio's '96 Barolos are exceptional" - Gambero Rosso, Two Glasses    $450.00 per bottle
