Dolcetto, 1978

Luigi Coppo

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant.

Kopke Port, 1978

Colheita Port
Decanter 2021 Silver Award Winner
Comes in Original Gift Box

***94 Points- Mark Squires, eRobertParker.com 23 March 2016***

Review:
The 1978 Kopke Colheita Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 with 119 grams per litre of residual sugar and a bar top cork (typical for the house). It is very graceful for its age, finishing with a wave of sweetness, fruit and sugar. Emphasizing the caramel more than the molasses, this is irresistibly delicious, but it becomes more complex and puts on weight as it airs and warms. The wine shows off its power and hints of Brandy on the rather tense finish, too. Overall, this is a beauty that becomes more impressive the longer you sit with it.

Madeira, 1978

Barbeito Vinhos - Sercial - Frasqueira

Ricardo Freitas is the managing director and winemaker for Vinhos Barbeito. He grew up surrounded by the magical old vintages of Madeira that his grandfather collected and sold. His winemaking, blending and tasting ability has made him one of the leading figures of winemaking on the island. In fact, none other than the esteemed Jancis Robinson has referred to the wines of Barbeito as "the Lafite of Madeira."

The 1978 Barbeito Sercial was aged in old French oak casks since February 1979 and bottled in December of 2003. Deep amber in color with a mesmerizing nose of orange peel, almond and smoke.

Merlot, 1978

Vallagarina - Destra Adige

Merlot can also produce a delightful and intriguing pure varietal wine. While Merlot has a long history of use as a blending wine, pure Merlot wines have been relatively slow in gaining momentum in Italy. That too has changed and today some of the world’s best Merlot wines bear Italian labels.

Morellino di Scansano, 1978

Le Pupille - Riserva

This style of Sangiovese differs from its northern brethren due to the ripeness levels it can achieve in southern Tuscany. The result is a rounder and more savory style of wine. Regulations stipulate that at least 85% of the wine must be made from this variety, with the rest coming from other permitted Tuscan red grapes. Unlike many DOCGs, this wine does not require ageing and can be released in the March after the harvest, less than eight months later; logically, this wine is characterized by lively freshness and crisp character. Other traits come in the form of cherry, pomegranate, plum, leather, cedar and spice notes.

Nebbiolo D'Alba, 1978

L. Bertolo

The Nebbiolo d'Alba has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavoured wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

Recioto, 1978

F.lli Furia

"Recioto," as in "Recioto della Valpolicella," refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on mats after picking. This process turns the grapes closer to raisins, concentrating the flavors. The wines are lovely and taste how you'd expect raisins-turned-wine to taste, rich and sweet.
