Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey Le Lys Blanc Sec 2014
Azienda Agricola Poliziano Le Stanze 2004
Fontanafredda Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2005
The Barolo, it's density, it's velvety mouthfeel, it's tight structure, the mature fruit, the acidity, makes me regret why I haven't started collecting and ageing Barolo. This Fontanafredda 2005 compared with Pio Cesare Ornato 2003, is like an elegant lady in a long velvet dress vs a well-built, masculine, mature, powerful man, totally different style, totally, totally different, while both are from Serralunga. .
Poliziano Le Stanze 2004, a Bordeaux blend. It has Bordeaux structure but fruit wise, it's a warm and ripe Bordeaux. This feelings totally reminds me of the very first time, when I was a Bordeaux-only wine beginner, attending James Suckling 100 Greatest Italian Wine Tasting in Hong Kong - first time tasting Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, yes Bordeaux grapes but the warmth and ripeness in the fruit is so much different from the cold and sometimes green and peppery Bordeaux. And now I love this ripeness in fruit so much! And the price, compared with Bordeaux yes, I'm a traitor, for ageing, I buy super Tuscan
