Conterno Gattinara Nebbiolo 2016

Radiant orange tint on garnet. Meaty with plum and fig, raspberry with pipe tobacco and pine tar with a sweet burnt rye aspect. There are subtle strawberries and black cherry, blood orange flambè, and dried violet on the nose. Dried raspberry and blackberry, cranberry tannin combo, wolf berry, red currant and smoke. Delicious with Bresaola!! .

Got some groans from friends thinking it was too early to drink, but I love young Nebbiolo, when the citrus is shining and the tar is visceral! Any fats just set it on fire!

@David Kline I’m often right there w you.
Tar ascendant! I don’t want my Piedmonte, Gattinara, Boca,Lessona, etc. to be a Burg.

Il Putto Gattinara Nebbiolo 2017

Nose is so fresh. Hand crushed cherry juice. As it opens almost a bit meaty. Gets more dense. Intense spice. Blackberries. Some elegant library book. Totally different wine from 0-30 minutes. Quite fascinating. Actually amazing. A quirky but delicious wine. Sexy librarian.

Palate is similar. Fresh cherry juice. A hint of cherry licorice. Very mineral. Silky tanins.

As this opens intense cherry licorice. Better deliciousness. High level deliciousness. Almost sticks to the lips. Intense density. Darker fruits. Really clings to the lips and palate. Grabs the palate on the swallow.

Long finish.

This vintage is more a wine of hedonism than one of elegance (which is the house style) even though for a hedonistic wine it is quite elegant. As this opens it becomes very very intense. Spice. Concentrated fruit. Cinnamon. Clove.

Much more a more typical gattinara as opposed to a dorelli wine that was made in gattinara.

It’s great to see what a great winemaker like Dorelli does over vintages with different characters. The imprint of the elegant house style is always there but the vintage is there as well.

Cascina Cottionano Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2019

N: Lots of tar and cured leather on the nose, a bit of mint. Balsamic dipped strawberries, gravel, lots of interesting aromas coming when you sit on an old, dusty, cracked red leather couch.
P: At first crack, all leather and tar with grippy tannins, as it airs, some dark cherries and loam, lots of crisp but assertive fruits, dark berries. Shines w protein. A great treat from Alto-Piedmonte. 12.5° 70% Nebbiolo, 15% each Vespolina and Croatina.Well done!
