San Cristoforo Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2010

Not much has changed with this delicious Nebbiolo. This time we decanted it for 2.5 hours while cooking up home made butter chicken. It’s a light to medium colour, reminiscent of natural strawberry or raspberry juice. Fresh smell of vanilla, strawberries, roses, flowers and hint of smokiness. Taste; starts of with fresh red fruits and vanilla. In the middle there is mild to medium leather chewiness. Also there is a definite subtle cigar box smell and some kind of chocolate. It finishes off with a fresh acidity that complements the beginning and middle. Overall, red fruit and rose Nebbiolo that has good complexity and fresh acidity that keeps you engaged. The butter chicken was great as well. — 5 years ago

Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

Tobacco, leather, dark dark cherry, blueberry, wild mushroom on the nose. Medium/strong tannins. Excellent smooth finish. Bright cherry (typical Italian), Coca-Cola, dark chocolate on the palate. Barolo is Barolo. It rarely disappoints and this certainly is a fine example. — 6 years ago
