Barolo

Ellena Giuseppe

Ellena Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Popped and poured; enjoyed over three hours. Pours a dark ruby with a transparent core. Medium+ viscosity, medium+ intensity. On the nose, Twin Bing, roses, alpine air, forest floor, tar, and a small dash of baking spices. On the palate, mixed red fruits, blood orange pith, tobacco, and fresh green herbs. Quite a bit rounder than I’m used to for Barolo but it’s undeniably a charmer. The finish is very long, bone dry. Yes…this is very becoming indeed! Medium+ tannin, medium+ acid, medium + alcohol. Hedonistic and drinking so well now. — 4 days ago

Gallinotto Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

A steal at $38. Filthy, so good. Traditional style barolo. Decanted for about 45 minutes and it is singing. Drank with pasta with red sauce and meatballs. — 10 days ago

Nose is gorgeous. Fresh roses.

Palate has great elegant raspberry fruit with a pleasant hint of bitterness. Some chocolate.

Texture is like silk.

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Very approachable indeed. Still a little shy, but beautifully balanced with liquorice, leather and dried floral notes on the nose, with an earthy palate that finishes with insistent tannins. Finished a main of beef, then needed to bring out some cheese to restore saliva levels. Decanted for four hours, but keen to leave this overnight and see how it develops. — 13 days ago

La Morra Barolo Nebbiolo

Lovely and accessible 2015 Barolo. More ripe red fruit, even some apple…. but the typical Nebbiolo notes remain prevalent. You could let this sit for 5 more years, but it’s really good now with some air. — 8 days ago

Vigneto Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

This was a little more shut down than past btls but with air revealing its greatness. Whole cluster showing lots of purity & elegance with notes of cherry, strawberry fruits, spice, rose petal & violet. Beautiful balance & length that needs more time but hard to resist now. — 13 days ago
