TN: Iuli Natalin Grignolino NV...(short/boring)

#1 Post by TomHill » April 22nd, 2019, 8:56 am

We had this w/ our Easter ham on Sat night:
1. Iuli Natalin VinoRosso (13.5%; 100% Grignolino; www.Iuli.It; Indie Wines Imports) Iuli Fabrizio/Montaldo di Cerrina NV (2016?): Med.light slight orangey color; very fragrant/perfumed strawberry/Grignolino bit floral/violets/slight Nebb-like very slight bretty some earthy/dusty lovely nose; lightly tart/tangy some floral/strawberries/Grignolino rather dusty/earthy somewhat savory/rough flavor w/ brisk crunchy tannins; very long rather hard/gritty some floral/strawberries rather earthy/dusty finish w/ hard gritty tannins; a lovely Grignolino nose but rather tough on the palate. $22.00 (Prima)
A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Iuli: I was most impressed by the Iuli Malidea Nebbiolo. So I wanted to try their Grignolino, one of my favorite Piemonte varieties. I was expecting a fragrant light-bodied Grignolino. This was a pretty heavily extracted Grignolino, though, more like their Nebbiolo. Did not go at all with this terrific DrFieldGoods BUtcher Shop ham w/ a bourbon/rum/Corti orange marmalade/mustard/balsamic glaze, which was quite sweet, but absolutely delicious.
Fabrizio Iuli is interested in reviving the fortunes of some of the ancient Piemontese varieties like Slarina (red grape) and Baratuciat (white grape..meaning "cat's testicles" in local dialect). Obviously, would love to try those wines.
