Fontanafredda

Serralunga d'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

First and foremost, these are my all time favorite labels. Deep clear ruby color, almost Tawny. Little violet specks throughout. Traditional and classic to its core. Black truffles and moist earth initially on the nose with the customary dried cherries showing up. Menthol, dried herbs, and black tea.

Stylish and refined, as all Barolo should be. Tight at first but opens up very nicely after an hour. Bright acidity and ripe tannins. A staple of these Fontanafredda wines. A touch of old leather to go with the cherries and blackberries. More beautiful herbs on the palate to go with the star anise and cigar box. As wonderful as it is today, it’s fun thinking about what it can be down the road.

Btl 3519. 2 hrs slow ox. On the nose: heavenly delicate black cherry, blood orange and a hint of VA, giving a little bit of gloss. On the palate: fatastic acidity, and so elegant: black cherry, orange peel, lovely density, so lithe...soft tannin on the sexy finish. — a day ago

Luigi Pira

Serralunga Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Est., in the early 1950s, producing and selling only grapes and just a few years ago Giampaolo Pira began aging and bottling its own wines. Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit and earthy spices, 100% Nebbiolo. On the palate flavors of ripe cherry and plum with earthy pepper spice, well balanced. Fine tannins, vivid acidity, long finish ending with earthy mineral notes, drink now. — 2 days ago

Giovanni Rosso

La Serra Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe berry fruits and fresh floral, mint and herb citrus scents, aged for 36 months in oak. On the palate the palate flavors of raspberry, cherry, tobacco and fresh herbs give this medium+ body wine some power, yet it’s graceful and elegant. Soft fine tannins on a well balanced frame makes this wine enjoyable today but it will be better in about 5 years and over the next decade. — 8 days ago

Mario Marengo

Bricco Delle Viole Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Medium ruby color with aromas of ripe red fruits and elegant hints of floral. On the palate flavors of black cherry, raspberry and plum with hints of fig and tobacco. Tannins are fine and round, a tad young with high acidity noted. The finish is medium, smooth and ends with oak and earthy mineral notes. Very nice. Needs time. — 3 days ago

La Ca' Nova

Montestefano Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

Color of burgundy with a slight purple hue. Quite clear. Nose of nice dried strawberry, beautiful aldehyde, nice savory herb, oily paint, and strength of alcohol. Nose is beautiful and well refined. Taste follows the nose with addition of zest, slight sweetness, warmth of alcohol, and mellow tannins. Well balanced and tasty. Aftertaste is long and savory. Beautiful. — 8 days ago
