2007 La Lecciaia "Manapetra" Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 10-17-2012
Manapetra is the name of a creek running on the edge of the La Lecciaia estate about 4.5 km southeast of the town of Montalcino and gives its name to their premier vineyard site. This wine has all of the classic richness of the 2007 vintage but shows great structure, depth and length. The ripe wild cherry fruit fills your glass and beckons forth the layers of spice, earth, leather and is reminiscent of a bit of air you’d smell on a walk in the Tuscan countryside. The tannins are sweet and very fine grain but show the wine has big, powerful shoulders that carry through across the palate. Manapetra has a very supple texture that makes it drinkable now but it will age well for another decade plus.
Drink from 2012 to 2022
2007 La Lecciaia Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 10-16-2012
The La Lecciaia is a classic Brunello displaying a vibrant core of acidic structure that is enveloped by a flow of bright, sweet, ripe, wild cherry fruit. This richly textured fruit is supple and inviting on the palate and full of spice, saddle leather, earth and it has a mineral glint that I liken to iron that gives the wine a little grittiness. This wine has extraordinary length and balance to go along with its rich palate presence. It is remarkably drinkable now but will age well over the next decade.
Drink from 2012 to 2020
Kilchoman K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml
Review Date: 9-5-2012
You don't see me reviewing Single Malt very often but when you do you should take note. This single barrel selection isn't about age it is about flavor and it has everything I look for in an Islay single malt. I enjoy the intense peatiness when it is supremely well integrated and the intense smoke in this spirit seems to be attached at the core. Powerful, layered and complex peatiness not a day old BBQ smell but saturated flavors that don't linger they camp out on your palate. Wonderful balance, not hot and with that hint of sherry wood it turns into something truly magnificent. You'll love it
Drink from 2012 to 2032
Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth (1L)
Review Date: 7-9-2009
If you have never tasted this product you must. If you think you know what vermouth is think again; this will absolutely blow you away. Inordiately complex, so full of spice, balanced...it is really good. Try it on the rocks with a twist and a splash, straight up or in a Manhattan.
Drink from 2009 to 2059
