A Ordinary Wednesday - Foradori, Montevetrano, Brovia, Tua Rita

A big thanks to M! All tasted double blind.

2020 Granato, Foradori
A young, tight nose with notes of iron, red currants, gravel and tobacco leaves. High and fine.
The taste is tight and seedy with low keyed red fruit, polished tannins and a medium long finish. 8+ years.
91p   (tasted 2023/11)

1995 Montevetrano
A deep, somewhat mature nose with notes of tobacco, black currants, plums and undergrowth. Very fine.
The taste is taut and herbal with notes of peppery black fruit, moist tobacco and a long, long finish. Perfect to drink now but will keep for 6+ years.
94p   (tasted 2023/11)

2006 Barolo Rocche, Brovia
A very deep, balsamic nose with notes of ripe raspberries, warm earth, minerals and salmiak. Very fine.
The taste is perfumed and fine with notes of dried fruit, a very fine acidity and a long, delicate finish. 8+ years.
94p   (tasted 2023/11)

2001 Redigaffi, Tua Rita
A big, outgoing nose with notes of blackberries, chocolate mousse, moist earth and fir wood. Deep and fine.
The taste is rich and concentrated with sandy tannins, dried black fruit, asphalt and smoke. 4+ years.
