No great wines, only great bottles. This was one. The worst label/cork of the night, but the juice was on point. — 2 months ago

Holy smokes!!! What a treat! This was made the year before my parents were born. Very light in color, tannin and acidity still present. Raisin, potpourri, earth. — 5 months ago

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Popped and poured. The 2015 Brezza “Cannubi” pours a medium garnet with a largely transparent core and very faint stain of a tears. On the nose, the wine is intense, redolent with roses, cherries, pomegranate, damp basement, some tar and dried herbs. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with high tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the cherry fruit which again, is quite generous accompanied by licorice, and a thing hanging out way in the back that reminded me a bit of cooked spinach? It sounds worse than it is…but it’s a thing. The finish is long and savory. Pretty tasty stuff. Drink over the next 10-15 years. — 4 months ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

This afternoon at a late lunch we were served the 2011 Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Barolo.

In the nose there was cherry, strawberry, plum, licorice, dried roses, spice, tar, ckay pot and dusty earth.

On the palate there was strawberry, cherry, raspberry, red currant, anise, spice, leather and earth.

This wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + grippy mouthcoating tannins that seemlessly move to a long red and dark fruit dusty earth finish. Definitely a nice bottle of wine and would gladly have this bottle again. We have had hot weather this week which has broke us out of the 40 and 50 degree weather. It has been definitely needed and seems to have woken everyone out of their winter malaise. I wish everyone a wonderful weekend. Please stay safe and healthy, Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
