Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Very moody and expressive. Young for sure but it was wonderful now. Approachable in every sip but lots going on in the bouquet and the finish. — a month ago

Tar and roses are prominent. Fresh cut herbs. Still tight. Saved a glass for tomorrow. Even better after a day. More of the licorice started showing. Awesome — 14 days ago

Dolcetto d'Alba 2019

Mets/DeGrom accompaniment, suitably exciting & pedigreed. Closest to a Barolo clone I’ve ever had in a Dolcetto. Slightly gamey, black & dark red fruits, fine tannins still need development. Despite the youth it really has great mid palate depth & the intensity is there. A new producer to me. Nothing like a Dolcetto, which is ok given its low 20$ price & quality. — 9 days ago

The 2013 vintage is an elegant and backward vintage, the problem is that the acid structure is not uniformly balanced. It will appeal to those who like soft attack and lengthy finish. — 7 days ago

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Still young but smooth and integrated. Delicious dark plum and a solid core of gnarly fruit. Some dried herbs. Lovely balance. Fresh and intense. Needs time to really sing but very polished — a month ago

Giacomo Fenocchio

Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Ripe but tart red and black fruits, cherry and blueberry, red currant, very slightly raisined on the nose. Maybe some floral and a chocolate or coffee note. Cedar and liquorice, earthy. Very light browning on the edge. Lasting tannins and good length finish. — 25 days ago
