Acclivi Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

Splash decanted immediately prior to service; enjoyed over the course of several hours. “Acclivi” is a blend of selected fruit from several MGA’s in the commune of Verduno, including fruit from some of their prized holdings in Monvigliero as well as Boscotto, Neirane and Rocche dell’Olmo (which is an MGA that is no longer bottled on its own by any producer).

The 2017 pours a pretty, light garnet color with a transparent core; medium+ viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with loads of roses, pomegranate, cranberry, talcum powder, exotic spices, pastilles, orange rind and dry gravely earth. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with high tannin and acid that only seems to build over an hour of air.

Over the last 20 years, there have been few vintages with less love than 2017. There were significant issues related to frost in the Spring and the vines had to deal with a very hot growing season. Yet, despite these challenges, Fabio was able to nurture an ethereal beauty which only gains power and grace as the hours roll by. Effortlessly elegant. Drink now with lots of patience (air) and through 2042. I would not decant or you’ll miss parts of the ride.

Verduno Pelaverga 2022

2024 summer. Burlotto makes lovely wines all across the range; this had a limpid character befitting the lovely light color, but also a breadth and warmth that is typical of these types of wines from Piemonte — 6 days ago

Aves Verduno Barbera d'Alba 2020

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course of two days. Better on Day 2. The 2020 “Aves” pours a deep ruby color with a touch of violet and a near opaque core; medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with notes of black berries, dark plums, purple flowers, licorice, myrrh and mineral-rich earth. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is medium+. This hides the posted 15% ABV very well. A lovely pairing with sausage and peppers. Drink now and over the next 7-10 years. — a month ago
