Barolo Nebbiolo 2019

Old world wine that I’ll ponder later tonight in the dream world. Like a college 101 course in Barolo’s of another age. Leathery, tannic, balanced, dark cherry and plum, copper. A young gal out at her first dance, yet waltzing with the seductive wisdom of generations. Deeply grateful to know people who treat me to such divinity. — 5 days ago

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1964

Pretty deep garnet , quite narrow rim . Quite stinky nose , bit medicinal and a bit weird, quite mineral . Some undergrowth notes on the palate , where it fills out quite well with an austere profile , mineral and a touch medicinal also. Ok length with balance acidity . Probably not the best bottle out there , does show though that better bottles still would have quite a lot to offer , drink now and over the next few years . — 5 months ago

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

Pretty similar colour to the Bartolo , medium deep garnet core , slightly less terracotta at the rim. Porcini mushrooms , sous bois , dried meat , really quite complex. On the palate more mineral , but with a strong meaty , porcini mushroom note , then with blueberry , blackberry . Very fine but present tannins , lovely balanced acidity . Long and really refined . With time in the glass shows well , but will improve over the next 5 -8 years and continue on a further 10 at least — 7 months ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2018

What I know about this wine is it’s huge aging potential; what I didn’t know was that their skill level is so high that even their young Barolos — if this bottle is indicative —are complete, perfectly balanced, and taste as if they are made to drink now! This wine was much more delicate, floral, Burgundian, and tea-scented than I expected compared to the other notable Barolo producers I have experienced. What a stunning introduction to this producer! — 9 hours ago

Barbera d'Alba 2011

Popped and poured. The 2011 Barbera d’Alba pours a deep, garnet (with some purple) color with a near opaque core. Slightly hazy. No signs of particles or gas. Medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is vinous. Boysenberries , mulberries, dark cherry, braised beef (no cap), oiled leather, dried leaf tobacco, organic earth. On the palate, the wine is dry; medium tannins and medium+ acid. Alcohol is medium+. Confirming the notes from the nose. This is really tasty right now. While I don’t think this is going to fall off a cliff soon, I also don’t think there is any reason to hold any longer. Drink now and enjoy while the fruits are still nicely balanced with the secondary characteristics. — 2 months ago

Canubbi Barolo Riserva Nebbiolo 1958

Punchy red fruit. Raspberry, roses, hints of tobacco. Gnarly fruit with whiff of Iodene and minerality. Deep savory flavor.Still intense. Delicious. From mag. Jef ROPP — 7 months ago
