Vigna Giachini Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Tasted double-blind. The wine presented as dark ruby but one could see through it (this should have been my clue; but I ignored that). On the nose, bright red fruits, some baking spices, some vanilla...tasted like it had seen French barrique. On the palate, there was a sweet attack with candied cherries and baking spices. Medium, long finish. Good balance. Firm but not punishing tannins. Good acid. I thought this was a 2015 Merlot-based, right bank Bordeaux from a good producer. I was completely out of sorts with this wine and to be honest, I can’t really blame myself since I rarely drink modern Barolo. I should have eliminated Bordeaux varietals based off the color alone which would have probably put me on a better track. Anyway, this bottle lacked a lot of the characteristics I crave in more traditional Barolo but was a good enough wine in its own right...just not to my tastes. — a month ago

Le Gramolere Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

17/20 (92/100) Приятный и комплексный аромат фиалок, вишни, земляники и ванили; в развитии появляется бальзамик. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, но деликатными по текстуре танинами. Мощное и уже готовое Бароло. — 8 days ago

Buon Padre Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Bon petit Barolo, nez restreint mais en bouche c’est la cerise, bien acidulé, une petite amertume mais pas trop dérangeante. Finale courte et un peu asséchante. — a month ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

Beautiful deep transparent mid red. Fairly high pitches acidity, redcurrant and rosehip mixed with some darker fruit like blackcurrant. Not too crazy or untamed. Nice to try one of Canonica’s wines and would be keen to follow with a barolo. — 9 days ago
