Castello di Verduno

Massara Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Happy Valentine’s Day (with a rib-eye). Leather, earthy, more roses than tar, young and fresh for a Barolo, perhaps more like a Barbaresco and more on the medium than full side. Bright tannins, mineral, cranberry, vanilla, potpourri, baker’s chocolate. From Flatiron Wines. — 4 days ago

Giacomo Conterno

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Textbook old school Barolo, all about the tar, leather, and roses with red fruit adding some vibrancy, enjoyable but understated and tight at the moment, it really needs more cellar time to deliver its full potential. — 5 days ago

Bric dël Fiasc Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

From a good looking bottle with a high fill and a solid cork seal. Out of the gate this is big and bold in the glass. Dark and opaque. With air this explodes in the glass, developing an amazing perfume. Notes of violets, rose petals, black earth, some cedar and a little soy sauce. Great balance in the mouth. Vibrant acidity. Long finish. Great showing! — 13 days ago

Collina Rionda Di Serralunga d'Alba Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1989

What is a perfect wine? What is the best wine one can ever have? I found my personal answer again: the Bruno Giacosa Barolo "Collina Rionda" Riserva 1989. This wine has it all, all I could wish for in the beauty of Nebbiolo. The nose alone was so intriguing; a basket of fruits of all sizes and colors is jumping out of the glass together with mild incense. In the palate the wine shows its perfection. Weightless but yet so intense und powerful with myriad flavors of red and black plums, fruitcake, saturating minerals and iron. The feminine elegance and finesse meet the masculine & darker characterstics that are so typical for Serralunga. You can only find this magic interplay in "Vigna Rionda". The tannins, acidity and fruit are in an incredible harmony and make this 30 years old wine appear so young. The finish is sweet and endless. This wine is a story told from the glass to the palate. The greatest story ever told. — 12 days ago

Ciabot Tanasio Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Color of brown and ruby, cloudy. Nose of tobacco leaves, dried strawberry, rose petal, ripe cherry, and a bit leathery. Taste of still young and solid tannins, dried strawberry, mineral, cherry jam, flavors are too plenty. Aftertaste is long with subtle acidity, spice, and more tannins. Hold her for another few years for even better taste. — 8 days ago

Barolo Chinato Nebbiolo

The pièce de résistance on a night of amazing friends, food and wine. My first Cappellano Chinato and this was a stunner. Not quite amaro but definitely on the savory side. Loads of roots, mint, anise and other herbs. Paired with the fudge brownie. I can’t wait to have this again some day. — 9 days ago

Cascina Adelaide

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Color is light ruby with a bit brown and orange note on the rim. Nose is quite light with pleasant sweetness, some black tea, a bit savory spice, and a bit strawberry. Taste of very solid tannins, good acidity, a bit wet mushroom, indeed very Pinot noir like, a bit tobacco leaves, a bit cherry and vanilla, and a bit peppery. Aftertaste with some more additional zest, medium lingering. She is interesting. Light on the color yet very solid and young on the taste still. Very good experience. — 10 days ago

Bruno Giacosa

Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2000

Really a fantastic well aged Barolo. Vintage giacosa in a very meaningful way. A little bricking at the rim, deeply aromatic. In perfect shape with the age. Tannins still there but perfectly integrated. Great fruit and acid. An excellent pairing with prime rib and dry aged porterhouse at Keens. — 9 days ago
