Ghemme Riserva Nebbiolo

9.5

What a nose. First Riserva at Miru since 2008! What a nose. Wow. Sick. Holy shit. Ethereal cherries like nothing you’ve ever smelled before. Leather and glorious spice. Roses and tar. It’s so detailed and the clarity is off the charts. Wow. I’m really blown away as this Ghemme is on another level. Moss, Sous bois, minerals. Mulch. So complex and haunting. Volnay meets Ghemme. What a palate. Sick. Sweet cherry fruit. Mid season and some sour cherries. Amazing clarity to the fruit. Sick sweetness. So so elegant. This is the best Ghemme I’ve ever had. What sweet and velvety tannins and such purity. This is amazing. So balanced, so fresh, so energetic and deep. The finish hits every nook and cranny. The finesse is top top notch. Mindblowing wine and it hasn’t even aired out yet. So juicy. So refined for a Ghemme but has a certain rusticity as well but even that is refined. This is a benchmark.

After air this is dizzying. Loads of deep spice and cherries. Minerals. Cherry cough drop. So aromatic. Wow. Leather. Like saddle leather. Palate has loads of sweet fruit and amazing tannins. So juicy. So refined and gentle for a Ghemme. Profound.

Collis Breclemae Ghemme Nebbiolo 2000

Stunning Altopiemonte wine! On the nose: blood orange, caramelized brown sugar, roses, a touch of tar, a hint of glossy VA that morphs into herbs, esp. mint. On the palate, excellent acidity, Rainier cherry, blood orange, mint, great density. On the finish: juicy, and builds to a suprisingly dense finish with a touch of grapefruit. — 21 days ago

Ghemme ai Livelli Nebbiolo 2013

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2013 Ghemme Ai Livelli is a wine of real intrigue, especially in its aromatics. The Ai Livelli is not materially different from the Dei Mazzoni in 2013, although it does offer more aromatic intensity and overall structure. Sage, lavender, dried rose petal, mint and crushed red berries are all beautifully lifted. This is such a pretty wine. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2020)

Killer. Nose of ripe cherries, cigar box. Smoke. Minerals. Tobacco. Wet earth. Dry earth. Loads of spices. Very expressive. Palate is terrific. Pure, ripe cherry fruit, big burly Ghemme tannins and terrific clarity of fruit. Very very fresh. Terrific energy. Will age for decades. Needs maybe 4-6 years. Terrific depth, power and concentration. Long finish. What it lacks in finesse it makes up for in flavor impact. — a month ago

Chioso Dei Pomi Ghemme Nebbiolo 2012

These wines are so beautiful. Gorgeous array of earthy/tar goodness that weave nicely with surprisingly deep and rich fruit, firm mineral backbone, and beautiful floral tones. The tannins appear to be softening, giving the sense that these once rigid tannins are coming around nicely. Deep black cherry and black plum, fresh tar, crushed flower petals, amaro spices, crushed rock, a sense of hung or cured meat, leather. — 2 months ago
