Cursalet Dolcetto di Dogliani 2019

Lyle Fass
9.3

I adore this Dolcetto. Nose is blackberries, leather, blueberries and smoke. Super aromatic. Layered and so pure. Just terrific. Palate is a masterful blend of ripe blackberry fruit that is super juicy and just bursting with tiny berry fruit intensity and so much flavor but backed by a strong mineral component. Not a better Dolcetto for the money. Remarkable wine. Can age for a decade. — 8 hours ago

Fossati Barolo Nebbiolo 2040

Nose is cherry liquor. Intense.

Palate is so precise. Perfect late early season cherries.

Very young.

Needs a 2 hour decant. Then you get the density.

Riserva Muncagota Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

Can see the enhanced spice and integration with this Riserva bottling. One of the more gentle palate “vineyards” from PdB when compared to Rabaja or Mocungatta. — 2 days ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1978

Deep reddish tawny color, mostly translucent. Floral nose. Notes of red fruit, rose petals, dark soil, smoked meat and blood sausage, and a little anise. Rich and powerful in the mouth. Still has some tannin. Gets bigger with air over the evening. This came across as a somewhat different bottle of juice than the 70 Monprivato next to it - with the 70 being more aged-Barolo like, and the 78 being more of a hearty Cote-Rotie or something. Nevertheless everyone loved this and having the two side-by-side. — 9 days ago

La Pira Vecchie Viti Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

Licorice and red fruits. Incredibly precise. From 80+ years old vines in monopoly since 1990. Drinks beautifully now but definitively another 20 years to go. — a day ago

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 1990

Taken to Selby's in Redwood City. Tawny color, with a deep reddish center and clear rims. Almost opaque. Awesome aged Barolo nose. Notes of a cup of dark red fruit, tea, rose petals, anise, mocha and some balsamic thing. Great balance of the remaining fruit with softened tannins. In a great spot for drinking. — 8 days ago

Vigneto Rocche Dell'Annunziata Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Wrong wine in Delectable: this is not the "Vigneto Rocche" but the "Rocche dell'Annunziata", the famous La Morra vineyard that Accomasso and several other great producers make a little wine from.

This is classic and textbook Nebbiolo that shows the rounder plusher side to the La Morra tannin structure, though they are very present but starting to resolve. Beautiful notes of raspberry, cherry, tar and roses jingles with savory spices. Med/med+ ruby, then med+ all the way across the nose and palate to the finish.

Brezza Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Nice Barolo. Last had just under a year ago, would probably wait a couple more years for the next one. — 2 days ago
