9.3

Lifted and very aromatic nose of herbs, dead leaves and freshly raked leaves, spice, tar, mulberry, mid season cherry, so lifted. Really compelling aromas. Better than Badina 10 and Mazzuchelli 10. Layered nose. Just sick. The tar and mint mixing is so good. Palate is juicy and deep with wonderful freshness and purity. Very balanced and suave but substantial tannins. So clean and pure. Lovely mid season dusty red cherry fruit. Terrific inner mouth aromas and a fresh, complex structured palate. Big tannins on the finish suggest further aging is warranted and it does “youthen up” when it gets air. Really balanced for such a big wine, even some finesse. 9.3 for now but let’s see what air does to it.

Terrific after some air. More round. Tannins much more velvety. Sweet fruit. So fresh and energetic. Terrific. So serious. Years to go.

Nose is intense cherry and cherry lipstick. A hint of pine.

Palate is crunchy cherries. Deep dense fruit. Very delicious. Some spice.

More densely fruited than the average alto Piemonte wine.

Al Posto Dei Fiori Coste della Sesia Rosato 2017

Dark pink, orange spice, red raspberry and a zing of pepper. With each mouthful you daydream...only to be grab by the finish and brought back to another enchanted mouthful. Pairs excellently with any Italian food. — 3 months ago

There’s some surprising boringness here. No obvious flaws but no standout qualities either. Less vibrant than you’d expect from Antoniolo. — 18 days ago

Rosa del Rosa Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo Rosé 2019

9.3

A stunning opening reveals depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange and roses. Silky textures tug at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then sooth through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. A blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — 2 months ago

9.0

A fresh Rosato with citrus-tinged florals and minerals, then hints of ginger and crisp green apple. On the palate, soft textures are offset by vibrant acids, with minerals, spice, young strawberry and cherry. The long finish is laced with Nebbiolo tannin and notes of citrus. $17.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2020) — 3 months ago

This is best bottle of roccia Rossa I’ve ever had. So amazing. Nose of cigar, roses, so so old school. Licorice, mineral, loam, floral. So gorgeous, amazing sweet fruit, red and so pure. Velvety. So complex. Sweet tannins. Spices. Just so firm and insane. Amazing fruit sweet. — 2 months ago

Cascina Cottionano Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2016

Matté
9.0

Lovely purity of berry compote along with an underlying ferrous, rusty nail type iron mineral character. With time in the glass there’s also some very attractive almond paste or pie crust notes, dried cranberry and yoghurt covered raisins.
In the mouth it’s incredibly approachable with fine grained tannins that are very well interpreted into the red currant and cranberry fruit. It’s refreshing, approachable and very food friendly as the acidity seems to be perfectly ripe in this vintage. Don’t think I’ve tasted a better vintage of this in the past 5 years or so. As with most Italians, food will elevate this. 👌🏽
