Attending a friend's gathering tonight. He's cooking Italian, pouring 1997 Fontodi Flaccianello and also vintage Heidsieck though I know not which.
Noice- that's a $600-800 find
A wine-making colleague of mine once said, regarding a tough year: "Pinot, you bitch."
It ain't Nebbiolo. Corino is a nice but otherwise pretty cheap Alba Barbera. They make it to drink now. 2012 is going to prove itself an iffy year for Barbera.Sure, it could sit a little but that bottle just needs to sit open for maybe an hour.Or am I missing the sarcasm?
Probably not by much though.
I asked a friend last night- said it's seen in some makers and is accepted in older vintages but no, not a routine "style" across the board.FWIW
Sparkling or still? I've seen once if I recall and no a fellow who likes sparkling/millesimato Gavi that is a little oxidized,What still Cortese I've experienced was bright and noticeably pineapple.
An addition to the shop select list.
Same- love it.Challenge being to find a well-aged + affordable example.
