Last night with some friends & forumites:
2016 - San Silvestro Roero Arneis - great qpr Arneis
2002 Bollinger Grand Annee - wonderful
1996 Pio Cesare Barolo Ornato - drinking really well - at peak with a long way to go. Half of the group picked this from the 90s flight
1997 Pio Cesare Barolo Ornato - better than I expected given the vintage. a bit more mature than the 96 but beautiful. Half picked this one from the 90s flight
1999 Domenico Clerico Barolo Pajana - Big fruit, big tannin, big oak. Not my style by itself and seemed like it needs years to sort itself out. But, great when paired with Beet Ravioli in a rich butter based sauce.
2001 Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche - Beautiful red fruit, earthy, elegant - my pick (blind) of the 01 flight. This is the nicest Ceretto I've had - wonderful.
2001 Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc - Bigger and darker than the Rocche. Needs time. Softened and opened up with time in the glass. Needs time (5 yrs imo)
2001 Paolo Scavino Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva - Between the Rocche and Bric del Fiasc in weight and tone to start. Beautiful on the palate. Improved with time in the glass. This has a long way to go.
2006 Castello di Neive Passito Arneis - Amazing. In the late harvest zone in terms of sweetness but superbly balanced and complex. Excellent and has a long way to go.
