Langhe DOC Nebbiolo 2021

2021 vintage. Excellent. Right in the zone I like for Barbera or Nebbiolo — 12 days ago

Fratelli Alessandria

Speziale Verduno Pelaverga 2020

“Probably the best pizza wine in the world and definitely the girliest”

Can confirm these observations of a friend - just so darn satisfying with pizza magherita. Notes-wise, I reckon JR got it spot on, so here it is, “With exuberant aromas this wine is stunning right out of the glass. The nose is full of rhubarb, rose hips, cracked pink peppercorn and even zesty orange peel, all mixed through with an earthy accent. The palate is mouth-watering and fresh with modest tannin, a velvety mouthfeel and a long finish. Intriguing, distinctive and deceptively easy to drink. Enjoyable”.

Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Difficult to articulate how good this is. I don’t drink Barolo. Maybe I should fix that. — 3 years ago

Fratelli Vineyard Fiano 2011

Best domestic Fiano IMHO - rich, elegant, complex. 2011 is so good — wish I had more. — 3 years ago

Gramolere Barolo Nebbiolo 2019

Delectable Wine

From barrel I thought the 2019 Barolo Gramolere was quite elegant, but now it’s anything but. At this stage, it is a searingly tannic and forbidding Barolo, with notes of black cherry, plum, leather, licorice and mocha. The 2019 has shut down massively post-bottling. I would not dream of touching a bottle anytime soon. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2024)

Fratelli Barale

Langhe Arneis 1870

In a word, delicious. Fruit forward. Fresh. Pairs well with basically anything and your friends that want a “white wine” will be blown away by the drink ability smoothness and freshness of this great wine. Enjoyed with parm cheese wedges, prosciutto,and some fruits as an appetizer prior to enjoying with bay sea scallops and linguini. I’m very happy I bought 3 bottles. Thank you Astor wines for suggesting it! — 2 years ago

Fratelli Branca Distillerie

Fernet-Branca Liqueur

This drink reminds me of an amaro. Sweet and pungent. I had it with coke and it mixed well with some ice. — 5 months ago

Fratelli Serio and Battista Borgogno

Cannubi Barolo Riserva Nebbiolo 2013

Get take out because you’re working retail during the holidays, but do it right with Belotti & Barolo. Fragrant with rose petals, red & black currant, cloves and new leather. Dense with polished tannins that hit every nook & cranny of your mouth. From a producer I don’t know much about. Overall, this was darker Barolo overall than I expected both in terms of fruit profile and color. Is this a Cannubi thing? A barrique thing? — a year ago

Fratelli Revello

Ciabot du Re Barbera d'Alba 2000

Served blind. I never would have guessed!
Amazingly pure bramble black cherry essence - still youthful after 21y, enticing, juicy, with a whiff of wood polish and a pinch of black pepper.
Smooth on the palate, seamless, so juicy. Polished super fine tannins, zippy cherry acidity and a savoury core of black cherry and herbs. Uplifting fresh finish, even if falling a bit short in length.
A delicious wine!
