SORDO ROCCHE DI CASTIGLIONE

BAROLO 2011

DOCG

TASTING NOTE: Aromas of forest floor, mature berry,

dark culinary spice, wild mint and a whiff of violet

come together on this impressive wine. The full-bodied

palate displays layers of mature black cherry, rasp-

berry jam, licorice and chopped herb framed in bracing

tannins and fresh acidity. Even though it seems

inviting, give it time to settle down and come together.

Drink 2020-2030. Cellar Selection. Score:

TRAVAGLINI GATTINARA 2012

DOCG

TASTING NOTE: This wine represents Travaglini’s

existential raison d’être. The 2012 Gattinara is a pure

expression of Nebbiolo sourced from the various

vineyards across this estate’s holdings. The wine sees

two and a half years of aging in large oak (with 10%

in barrique). The color here is dark garnet, and the

bouquet offers good complexity with dried fruit, spice

and crushed mineral. The finish is long and silky.

Vines range from 12 years to 45 years old in age.

Drink Date: 2017-2025. Score:

PODERI ANGELINI

PRIMITIVO DI MANDURIA 2012

DOC

Primitivo di Manduria is known as the premier

appellation for the Primitivo (Zinfandel) variety in all of

Europe. This big, burly version is made from 100%

Primitivo grown in the heart of Salento, approximately

5 km from the Ionian Sea. It spent over half a year

in barrel, adding smoky notes to its hallmark brambly

berry fruit, before maturing to perfection in bottle.

Pair with burgers or osso buco.
