Dolbà Langhe Dolcetto Barbera 2017

Whimsy on the label. Excellent Bing cherry color. Smells like herbs, stones and berries. Excellent flavor with woodsy, smoky, herb stuff to match the berry-cherry acid hit. Plenty of tannin and nice backbone on this. Great little bottle. — 16 days ago

Rocca Ravera di Monforte Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Nice Barolo, not a bad value for the price. Needs more time and air. But still quite typical on the nose and enjoyable overall. — 6 days ago

Vigneto Arborina Barolo Nebbiolo 2001

Far along in the secondary characteristics portion of its life. Tobacco and cherry blossom, wood shavings and thyme. Very enjoyable but time to drink! — a month ago

Buon Padre Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Color of clear burgundy, bubbly with copper tone on the rim. Nose of strength of alcohol, light cherry jam, some dried strawberry, a bit peppery, a bit leather, and a bit tobacco leaves. Nose is not too impressive. Taste shows ample acidity, still intense tannins, sour cherry, black pepper, just a bit sweet and some zest note. Aftertaste of some more ripe grapes and tinkling bitter note on the tongue. Not my type of wine. — a month ago

Le Gramolere Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Color of clear light purple, almost Pinot noir like. Nice legs. Nose of cured meat, a bit smoky, leathery, hint of dried strawberry, and strength of alcohol. Taste follows the nose with addition of refined tannins, dates and plum, dried strawberry, black pepper, some whisky barrel note, black tea, and some more dried strawberry. Aftertaste of some more ripe grapes, a bit more zest, and savory currants. Nice. — a month ago

Cerretta Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

On open nose is a bit muted. Sweet dark pink roses.

Palate is almost watery. Liquefied rose petal texture. Not much here. Some rose extract. Hints of gorgeousness after an hour. Maybe like the echo of blackberry.

Odd. Let’s see how this develops.

My wife thinks this is very mildly corked which is killing the nose.

Very old school elegant.

This really needs a 90 minute decant at this point.

La Serra Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe berry fruits and fresh floral, mint and herb citrus scents, aged for 36 months in oak. On the palate the palate flavors of raspberry, cherry, tobacco and fresh herbs give this medium+ body wine some power, yet it’s graceful and elegant. Soft fine tannins on a well balanced frame makes this wine enjoyable today but it will be better in about 5 years and over the next decade. — 3 days ago

Ciliegiozzo Umbria Ciliegiolo Rosato

Pink but dry not sweet. Bitter as pith. The best part perhaps how surprising it tastes compared to how it appears. — a month ago
