Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Dark cherry, red flowers, dusty earth and dried herbs. A touch round but bone dry and the expected structure is there. Give these a little bit of time. Better after 2023. Pretty solid value. — 2 months ago

Margheria Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

What a way to end the week. From impromptu Barolo tasting at Wine Merch 12/17 courtesy of Ionia. Drinking beautifully. Dried red fruits, licorice. Traditional big tannins. Great with Pastaria beef garganelli and nduja pizza. — 7 months ago

Vigneto Punta Barbera d'Alba 1997

constantly underestimated grape - here presented in perfect condition and showing culinary herbs, ridden saddle leather, autumn foliage and some fruital hints.
a quite adorable old lady!
certainly on a range with a. oberto, braida and vietti's barbera treatment skills, highlighted here the ability to age this low in tannin grape...

Riserva Bricco Voghera Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Azelia Barolos at VinItaly! Back from Verona and what a really great experience. Really enjoyed meeting Lorenzo & his father Luigi from Azelia. Their wines reflect great passion, focused craftsmanship & pure elegance. Here are two of their outstanding Barolo wines I had the great pleasure of tasting with them. Fantastic nose. Impeccable balance. Awesome fruit. This is Nebbiolo at its best! These wines were simply amazing. Cheers🍷 — 3 months ago

Serralunga Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

9.0

The aroma is similar to Azelia, authentic and pure, but missing some bass components. It even shows some natural wine tendencies, slightly volatile and gassy, which settles down quickly. The structure lacks the authority and the weight but it scores high in transparency and dynamics. It will not challenge the supremacy of Conternos, Mascarellos and Odderos because its aroma is less complex and powerful, but its structure is built on radically different geometry, which makes it very exciting. There is also a Burgundian sense of mastery of texture, and distinctiveness of aroma that separates it from more pedestrian Barolo’s. Also worth noting that while it shows the authentic character of Barolo it does not forego a strong individuality of the winemaker. — 2 years ago

Paolo Scavino

Bric dël Fiasc Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

Fascinating to drink next to its Azelia vintage vineyard-mate, the Scavino was shy on the nose even after an hour. Some tar, sour cherry came through, and preceded a deeply powerful core of black tea, loamy dark cherry and Grand Cru Burgundy essence of vinous power. 45 second length, not a hard edge to be found...this may last years but can’t imagine how it will improve. Phenomenal. — 4 years ago
