Wonderful wine. Decanted 4 hours and this certainly needs it at this point - will try the next bottle in 3-4 years. I actually had the 09 of this wine in Milan 4 years ago, fun to try it again through Fass Selections (and with a new label to boot). Just a great reminder of why nebbiolo is such an amazing grape when tended well. Amazingly aromatic, such depth, great fruit, nice long finish, excellent acid, and a bit of that cooling menthol note. Perfect pairing with some garlic and fennel rubbed pork chops on a rather significant night…
Editing up to a 9.4 after a few more hours of air (total 7+ hours). Also realized this is 15%! Would not have guessed it, but had a nice chill on it throughout. — 6 days ago
Popped and poured; enjoyed over three hours. Pours a dark ruby with a transparent core. Medium+ viscosity, medium+ intensity. On the nose, Twin Bing, roses, alpine air, forest floor, tar, and a small dash of baking spices. On the palate, mixed red fruits, blood orange pith, tobacco, and fresh green herbs. Quite a bit rounder than I’m used to for Barolo but it’s undeniably a charmer. The finish is very long, bone dry. Yes…this is very becoming indeed! Medium+ tannin, medium+ acid, medium + alcohol. Hedonistic and drinking so well now. — 6 days ago
What can I say - almost at its peak. Powdery tannins, leather, rose pedals, licorice, cigar box, touch mint can go for another 5-10 years plenty of tannins left. Very classic. I should have bought so much more. One of the best Nebbiolo’s ’ I had in a long time. — 6 days ago
An exceptional value and probably my favorite bottling of their Langhe Nebbiolo to date. So typical - could certainly have mistaken for the general produttori barbaresco. At $23 just ridiculous- should have bought a couple cases. Interesting to see this is the clearly highest rated vintage of this wine on Delectable. — 28 minutes ago
Medium red to orange in color, showing age fairly early in my opinion. Red cherry, eucalyptus, and forest floor on the nose. Medium plus acidity--almost high. 14.5 ABV. Strong tart red cherry forward on the palate. Anise, roses, and some tertiary flavors of dried leaves emerging. Tannins are firm. Young, sorry to wake you up bro.
