2012 Rinaldi Langhe Nebbiolo

I'm kinda hoping I fit in your carry-on next time. Your descriptions and photos of wine, food and travel are making us all envious.


+1. I hope to hear the details about the trip at an offline this fall..

Hey SG, I've been flying under the radar for a while now (since, what, 2007 or so?), but thought of you and the ol' gang over the past few nights.

Enjoyed a 2003 Radio Coteau Timbervine last night, and tonight it was 2001 JJ Prum Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (with lobster bisque). It reminded me of how difficult a time we had getting the R-C delivered after they got inundated with demand post-publication of their scores, and ... well, the Prum I got from that wine shop behind the Pancake Pantry in Nashville, thanks to your guidance.

These wines delivered as promised lo, those many years ago. I wish I could have gotten more R-C, but I'm thrilled to have another 25 or so cases of 2001-2 Rieslings. I guess it's time to start regularly enjoying these, as they seem to be hitting their prime.
9:30 AM appointment this morning at Aldo Conterno. A great visit and conversation with winemaker Giacomo - a welcoming, down to earth man.

2011 Aldo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Conca Tre Pile
2010 Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello
2007 Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala
2006 Aldo Conterno Barolo Gran Bussia Riserva

All fantastic, but of course the hands down WOTM (wine of the morning) was the Gran Bussia.
