Val di Suga - Brunello di Montalcino
Had over two nights. First night, good. A little bland. Second night, with 2/3 of bottle gone, rest was mostly consumed with sediment. Fine bottle of wine, probably nearing the end.
Clos de l'Oratoire
Solid, thick wine.
Massolino - Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda
No bad luck on this Friday the 13th! This wine was wonderful.... Complex, delicate and refined. Lots of structure, drinking beautifully. Decanted for 30+ minutes, drank over 2 hour window. Last drop was up there. When I poured it into the decanter, the nose was overpowering. Really a terrific wine, thank you Massolino.
Soldera (Case Basse) - Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
Solid wine but nothing to write home about. Good juice but lacked some complexity. Could have been my fault, no decanting and not great glasses. Good, not great.
