Pizzini – 4/04/2013

Arneis 2012
Honeydew vanilla cantaloupe. Wonderfully fresh focused and clean, good lines get light finish.

Pinot Grigio 2012
Nice clean apple and melon fruits. Vibrant clean pure and straight.

Whitelands Pinot Grigio 2011
Honeyed intensity, slightly more concentrated. Fuller and more intense, denser and somehow sweeter fruit. Still very pure and fresh.

Lana Pinot Grigio 2011
Lovely floral tones, very vibrant. A slight toasty biscuit character. Lovely and clean, good acidity and nice texture.

Verduzzo 2012
Generous fruit nose. Grapefruit citrus razor sharp with some nice texture. Full of fruit but still fresh and crisp.

Rosetta 2012
Fresh bright inviting red berries. Vibrant fresh acids, friendly fruit sweetness, generous length and food pairing adaptability.

Sangiovese Shiraz 2011
Clean pure and fresh, good fruit and far too drinkable. What more do you need?

Sangiovese 2011
Red fruits galore, lots of life to it, very lively and friendly juicy.

Barbera 2011
Solid soft full but building on the palate.

Il Barone 2009
Full but wonderfully balanced, plenty of good fruit, acid and tannin, but balanced and a little bit savoury too.

Nebbiolo 2009
Soft solid focused structured, wonderfully deep and long.

Rubacuori 2005
Rustic old world nose, a little funky but plenty of raspberry notes. Wonderfully full and juicy but long and savoury on the back, great extension.

Rubacuori 2008
Quite closed for now, but certainly plenty of vibrancy. Juiciness all locked up.

Coronamento 2005
Focused driven quiet serious nose. Purity finesse elegance building on the palate, extremely vibrant and plenty of acids. Still wonderfully tight.

Dal Zotto – 4/04/2013

Arneis 2011
Light green apple citrus pith, hints of kiwi. Full and bursting, quite rich and intense of fruit.

Pinot Grigio 2012
Nice clean salty citrus notes, apple blossom quite light. Nice lines and purity, builds a little in the palate, elegant length and finish.

Rosato 2012 (sang, barbera)
Nice fresh full strawberry, bright and slightly creamy. Round yet focused, clean light finish, just savoury enough but RS keeps it friendly.

Sangiovese 2011
Slightly savoury spicy on the nose, nice red fruit tomatoes. Great lines, good volume, a bit of fruit sweetness on the back but great savoury dryness making it food friendly. Good depth.

Barbera 2011
Quite dark and intense, a little spicy and brambly, blackberries. Soft mellow rich long and yet spicy and savoury with some nice warmth.

Nebbiolo 2009
Very quiet and subdued, a little savoury sour cherry. Light and clean and fresh but packs a whallop with great length and staying power. Excellent balance with a nice soft fruit sweetness.
