Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2018

Medium light ruby wide watery garnet rim . Ripe strawberry, cherry fruit , touch floral , dried herbs , touch of dried spices, but elegant and quite reserved . On the palate slightly darker sweet fruit , liquorice undertones , good balance with a mineral saline tinge on the decent length finish . Ripe fine tannins and balanced acidity , surprising freshness , balanced alcohol . Elegant and understated , quite light in style , really enjoyable now. Won’t be a long lived wine I suspect , so enjoy now and over the next 5-8 years . — 8 days ago

Chianti Sangiovese 2019

N: Cherries and strawberries, some sandalwood. Almost juniper. Forest.
P: Med-Light body, nice acid/tannin balance. For inexpensive Chianti, not bad all. Great for weeknight pasta in sausage ragu.

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1982

Dense fruit. Pretty but a touch dried out. Roses, tart notes, pretty but lacked a little of the intensity of some of the other wines alongside it — 2 months ago

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

Pretty similar colour to the Bartolo , medium deep garnet core , slightly less terracotta at the rim. Porcini mushrooms , sous bois , dried meat , really quite complex. On the palate more mineral , but with a strong meaty , porcini mushroom note , then with blueberry , blackberry . Very fine but present tannins , lovely balanced acidity . Long and really refined . With time in the glass shows well , but will improve over the next 5 -8 years and continue on a further 10 at least — 18 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 1967

The oldest wine I've had. Cloudy appearance but still holding up though likely on its last legs. Still a classy drop. Cherries and oak. — a month ago

Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo 1945

Pure and light in color, tangy fruit, a few green notes but light plum, pencil lead and still punchy fruit. Gorgeous stuff. In great shape. Jef ROPP — 25 days ago
