(WT111120-01) 19 LANGHE BIANCO MONTERUSTICO, AZ. AGR. G. D. VAJRA  $14.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 13%; arneis, with dabs of chardonnay, sauvignon blanc. Oh, that is a pretty, pretty fruit-flower nose. Arneis leads the way. Chardonnay adds body. Sauvignon a citrus highlight. Arneis sage is prominent./ Convincing arneis. Gentle acidity and good flow of 2019. Vajra is good at crafting these dry white cuvees of native and alien grape varieties.

(WT111120-02) 19 LUGANA, SOC. AGR. CA' MAIOL  $16.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 13%; est. 1710; limestone soil with clay strata; relatively young vines. Some brimstone to start. Hard to get under it./ Yeah, dry and suppressed. Sulphur continued to dominant during the following hours. However, the group did perceive rightful varietal expression underneath. Requires decanting and plenty of aeration at this young stage.

(WT111120-03) 19 LUGANA LE CREETE, SOC. AGR. OTTELLA  $17.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 13%; 45 year old vines in a cru on marl. Depth, breadth, richness, turbiana definition. Complex presentations featuring papaya, squeeze of lemon, celery seed, and dried sage./ Sweet citrus, with edge and padded center. It's a fuller, louder talking expression of Ottella's lovely basic Lugana. Serious volume and length. On steroids. 17.1.

(WT111120-04) 19 BAIXAS ALBARINO, BODEGAS PAZO CILLEIRO  $16.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (SPAIN) 13%; in the Salnes Valley.Reluctant upon opening; takes some delving. There's sweet citrus and honeysuckle deep down inside. It pushes through. A nice and plush Salnes take on albarino./ White fruit melange. The varietal padding is evident, as well as vivacious fruit acidity. And saline minerality. Flavorful, balanced, long. Well liked by the group. 16.7+.

(WT111120-05) 18 SANCERRE LE GRAND FRICAMBAULT SILEX, DOMAINE ANDRE NEVEU  $27.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE LOIRE) 12.5%; in Chavignol, producing four single-vineyard sauvignons of distinct terroirs; Alain Junguenet selection. 2018 full and spreading out with bottle development. Shows silex terroir. Even walnut husk. I like its poise at this stage./ Full, mellow, well rounded silex Sancerre. I think this has some serious bouquet potential. 16.8+.

(WT111120-06) 19 BARBERA D'ALBA, AZ. AGR. ELIO ALTARE  $22.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; a visit to Burgundy in 1976 inspired Elio to move the family's wines toward elegance and finesse. Well, this just soars. It's brandied cherry, big time black peppercorn, tar, and nettle. Class act./ Suave thanks to high alcohol and fine craftsmanship. 2019 medium bodied. Full flavored through the long finish. Elegant indeed. What he does. 17.0+.

(WT111120-07) 19 LANGHE NEBBIOLO, AZ. AGR. RENATO CORINO  $21.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; at La Morra; inspired by neighbor Elio Altare to emphasize elegance and finesse; Marc de Grazia selection. An inviting sort of nebbiolo nose without pandering to international tastes. Fruit driven, as it should be. Add floral overtones, including rose./ 2019 medium bodied. Good grip and framework of nebbiolo tannin that can't confine its nebbiolo flavor set, which persists through a long, aromatic finish. Probably ok at the table now, though I expect cellaring will take it a long way. 16.9+.

(WT111120-08) 19 LANGHE NEBBIOLO GAVARINI, AZ. AGR. ELIO GRASSO  $23.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; at Monforte; one of Piemonte's fastest rising stars. A drier, more backward, more traditional aroma set. Oh, it's nebbiolo all right, and it runs deep. And really swells up with aeration to give a full assault on the nostrils./ Juicy acidity, suave glycerol. Dab of nebbiolo tar. This is serious stuff that approaches Barolo ambitions. Yes, big time cellar candidate. 17.1+.

(WT111120-09) 19 LANGHE NEBBIOLO, AZ. AGR. ELIO ALTARE  $26.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; at La Morra. Like the barbera, the beauty, the finesse, the intense, sweet fruit core. What he does. No Barolo, this is Altare's near definitive take on Langhe Nebbiolo./ 2019 medium bodied. Wonderful suavity despite nebbiolo's inherent tannins. They're well managed here. Very long, detailed aftertaste. 17.3+.

(WT111120-10) 18 LANGHE NEBBIOLO, CANTINA DEL PINO  $25.99
11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; at Barbaresco; Vinous Media: 'every single wine is fabulous.' Well, this is totally different from the others. It has a tonic overtone: bay, laurel. Very cool approach. Also a deep core of nebbiolo cherry, tar, and roses./ Medium to full bodied. The stylish nature of del Pino wines combined with 2018 fruit fulfillment. Sure can't throw a blanket over this nebbiolo set, unless it's from a quality standpoint. 17.0+.

11/11/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN) 14.5%; 70% grenache, 20% syrah, 10% mourvedre. Whooper! Aspires to be a Gigondas in power and impact. Huge concentration of black fruit, plus peppercorn and garrigue. Runs deeps./ Surprisingly suave rather than tannic. Fruit well packed in a dense core. Not the Montmirail J. C. Mathes knew. The present generation makes 'em BIG. 17.0+.
