. 🍇 Caviola Sottocastello Di Novello 2010, Barolo DOCG 🍇 . Incredible wine buyed in Piemont . Barolo is one of the famous wine in Italy, often named as the Burgundy of Italy. The red wines are pale and garnet red, with full tannins and a full body. Earthy and cherry notes pronounced. A great experience !!!
It is time for the first release in 2018. The release consists of 66 bottles and from these 3 wines with good aging potential have caught my attention based on their price level in relation to their quality. The first wine is Tesch Karthäuser Riesling Trocken 2015 by the producer @weingut_tesch from Nahe in Germany. 2015 is an excellent vintage and as you probably have learned by now I am a big sucker for well produced riesling. And I become even more interested when I see an aggregated critics´ score at @winesearcher of 91/100 for 159 SEK. In my willingness-to-pay model I am willing to pay 200-279 SEK for this quality so I am claiming this wine to be the greatest BARGAIN of the whole release. The second wine is the Tragaldabas 2015 by the producer @mandragoravinos from Salamanca in Spain. Tragaldabas is an organic wine that has been biodynamically grown. I have actually not yet tried the grape that is called Rufete so I am looking forward to doing so as this wine is considered to be a perfect introduction to this beautiful red grape variety grown on the green hills of Sierra de Francia, near the Portuguese border. This wine is also a BARGAIN as it has an aggregated critic´s score of 91/100 and is priced at 199 SEK. I am super excited about the third and last wine. It is Barolo Bricco delle Viole 2013 by the producer Mario Marengo from Piemont in Italy. I already have two bottles of the 2012 vintage, which has an aggregated critics´ score of 93/100. 2013 is a much better vintage in Piemont. I was given the impression that we would not be able to get bottles of this wine in the 2013 vintage, but I asked @battaglino1 who is running the winery together with her husband Mario and she let me know that was going to be the case. To be honest, there is currently not yet an aggregated critícs´ score available for this wine at @winesearcher, which is against my principles, but I have been reviewing Luca Gardini, Wine Advocate, James Suckling and Vinous. They score the
