My descriptions do not come close to many of your's, but I held a very enjoyable "Three Bs" Italian Party this evening, and a good time was had by all. All wines were decanted, perhaps for not long enough, because this was a very young group.
Franco Fiorina Barbaresco 2000
(Steefano Farina) The paint stripping tannic monster of the evening. Ouch. Still some nice fruit struggling to come out from underneath, but WOW what a young wine.
Siro Paecnti 2001 Brunello.
Still quite tannic, but, as would be expected, much more integrated. Nice dark fruit, some earthy tones. Different than my favorite Chiantis, but I found this wine quite complex and delcious. Might be better in five years?
Casanova di Neri Tenuto Nuova 1998 Brunello
A group favorite. More integrated tannins, a little more fruit, believe it or not. Some complexity., I'm not sure found it asd complex or interesting as the Siro Pacenti, but definitely a delicious bottle.
Mauro Sebaste Monvigliero Barolo 2001
Another group favorite. Quite nicely integrated tannins. Lots of dark, complex fruit and indescribable secondary flavors. Luckily, I have two more bottles of this one-will eb intrigued to see how it develops.
Corino 2001 Arborina Barolo
. Much more tannic, but very complex and interestijng fruit and secondary flavors. I enjoyed this one, but it had a mixed reaction from others.
Allegrini La Grola Veronese 2001
. Not at all what I expected from a half corvina wine. Much drier, more floral in character. I thought "Pinot Noirt" in flavor profile.
A good time was had by all, withgood friends, and amusement from my three very poignantly begging dogs.
I frankly enjoyed, to varying degrees, all of the wines. No obvious clunkers in the bunch!
