Vigna dei Prey Dolcetto di Dogliani Dolcetto Superiore 2016

I may be biased (I now sell this wine) but this is one of the best dolcetto examples on the market. Great with steak last night and versatile enough for pizza or antipasti. — 8 days ago

Riserva Feyles Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

classic and gorgeous expressive barolo nose. heavy on the tar, rich bouquet of flowers / rose petal, ripe red fruit, some savory leafy quality like basil. on the palette this is still a younger 15 year old wine , fruit is fresh and tannins are young and grippy. a lot of that savory leafy / foresty quality. expressive and classic with 1 hour decant but wondering if day 2 will bring more complexity. — 6 days ago

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

WOW!!! Beautiful ruby color with a bit of garnet around the rim. Beautiful aromas of black fruit, rose petals, vanilla and spices. Black cherry, plum, pepper spice fill the pallet. Touch of eucalyptus on the finish. Elegant and refined. Tannins are there but firmly in check. Outstanding! Thank you so much Kasey and Petey! — 11 days ago

Nebbiolo d'Alba 2004

Uplifting nose, aetheric, airy, with light cherry, wilted flowers, dusty cupboard. A faint hint of moist earth, and some kirsch in the background. So fresh, so pure, so youthful!
Pure & full of energy on the palate, light yet with juicy, crunchy tannins. Amazing how firm they still are. There’s just enough filling in the tannin-acidity frame to avoid being too austere, making it poised, ascetic and really refined.
An amazing wine!

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

Another solid vintage of this consistently great Barbaresco. This vintage seemed fuller and richer than many others. Beautiful nose of dried cherry, freshly turned soil, tobacco and tar. Touch of spice. Expressive pallet features dried cherry and raspberry, leather, black tea, and balsamic vinegar. Hint of mint, orange and toasted nuts on the finish. Lively and fresh tasting. Solid value. Thank You Kasey and Petey! — 11 days ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

Time Tested

03 was historically hot & dry. Did Monprivato succeed despite these conditions?

DAY 1
Served the wine with the Vinloq System which allows nitrogen to be pulled into the bottle with pouring
👀Brown/orange mixed with red
👃Cherries, tobacco, tar & roses. Some stewed/dried fruit
👅Mature. Florals and fruit are present. Light. Could use more acid. Easy to drink. Balanced

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my fridge

DAY 10
Nice aged notes. Savory. Okay precision. Tannins are good. Kept improving in the glass

DAY 17
👃Classic & beautiful with aged notes. Finally what I was hoping for👍
👅Drinking well. Cherry. Significant tar. Savory

Similar on the 3 days, but the nose was most beautiful on DAY 17

The pedigree was apparent here in this lovely barolo despite the vintage conditions. Balance was retained with enough precision to allow the Mascarello Monprivato personality to come through👏

Siri d'Jermu Dogliani Dolcetto 2020

This is an enjoyable, easy-drinking wine with medium tannins and medium acidity and plenty of red and black fruit character. Black cherry, wild strawberry, rhubarb, plum and violets all mingle on the bouquet and palate. Needs a little air (and food) to open up but wonderful balance of fresh appeal and flavorful depth. — a month ago

Slamming nose. Cedar, tar, tobacco, roses, very very fragrant. Palate is sleek, opulent but also reserved with juicy mid season cherry fruit and awesome velvety tannins. Wow this is a gorgeous wine. A notch up from the Ovello. Balance is near perfect. Unreal depth and so well made. Genius. So good. i’m blown away. This is the best 17 i’ve had so far.

After many hours the nose is very minty with chestnut vibes. Wow. Insanely juicy and so refined. Almost a 9.7. What high quality tannins. Stunning.

Sottimano

Langhe Nebbiolo 2020

It’s either bottle variation or that the 2+ months of rest time has done this wonders. It was so different from the first bottle. This was all red berries, menthol, tobacco, and spice. Good energy, though the warmth does come through. Chewy tannins with a bittersweet finish, touched by some mineral and woody elements. Enjoyable, though I would have liked some floral notes. — 12 days ago
