Ghemme Nebbiolo 2019

Lyle Fass

Freak show of a nose. Huge spices like cardamon and clove with some lovely spicey maraschino cherries. This is like a spice overload. So stunning. Gorgeous tar and roses as well. Full blown Nebbiolo symphony. 9.5. nose. Out of this world. Heavenly palate with insane fruit and juiciness. Complex and teeming with energy and gorgeous ripe tannins and loads of perfect cherry fruit and a crazy long finish. 9.49999 now but I see this going to 9.5 soon. — 10 days ago

Sizzano Nebbiolo Blend 2016

I’ve tasted this makers Ghemme before, so u shouldn’t be surprised how much I love this. Yet I still exalt over it’s soulful expression, all earthy & rust iron. And the’16 Italian vintage keeps on giving…. — 8 months ago

Vigna Ronco Al Maso Ghemme Nebbiolo 2017

Ghemme is my sentimental favorite of the Novarese DOCs. I had a really good one when I was in my last year of college and starting my wine journey. It generally is one of the heavier and, sometimes, earthier of the group. This one is very good. Still youthful, it takes time to open up, but slowly reveals dark cherry, mahogany furniture, crushed minerally gravel, and roasted meat scents. Medium full, it’s got concentrated and tight dark cherry fruit, very fine-grained but abundantly chalky tannins, and very nice acidity. No rush to drink this. Enjoy over the next 4-5 years, maybe longer. — 10 months ago

Ghemme ai Livelli Nebbiolo 2015

Delectable Wine

Mazzoni's 2015 Ghemme Ai Livelli is gorgeous. Floral and savory notes infuse the bouquet with notable presence. Light on its feet, yet wonderfully layered, the 2015 is super expressive right out of the gate. There's quite a bit of complexity, while the tannins are nicely mellowed by time. That makes for an incredibly appealing wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2022)

Yarra Valley Nebbiolo 2021

Lovely Aussi expression of this grape. Lively flavors and smooth in it’s transitions particularly for a wine so young. Closer to a Ghemme than a Barola. Earthy, Raspberry, rose petal, dried fruit, hazelnut. Very approachable young as it is not overly tannic or acidic. — 3 months ago

Colline Novaresi Tintaunita Red Blend

This is from Vignetti Costacurta di Costacurta Guido. Ghemme, Italy

Sweet red cherries and citrus blossom on the nose.
This encapsulates everything great about Northern Italian 'table wine'- drinkable, even gulpable with or without food but so much more elevated with a really nicely balanced acid to fruit ratio light but present tannins and a surprisingly lengthy finish.

Ghemme Nebbiolo Blend 2012

Really opens up the second day after decanting. Recommended by the somm at Astor, this is straight up value for this ripe Nebbiolo.

Characteristic crushed roses, great chew, nice balance of acid and tannin. Great juice
