Needs an hour decant. A bit dumb before that.

Fruity. Some spice.

9.3

A stunning opening reveals depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange and roses. Silky textures tug at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then sooth through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. A blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — 2 months ago

Lifted and very aromatic nose of herbs, dead leaves and freshly raked leaves, spice, tar, mulberry, mid season cherry, so lifted. Really compelling aromas. Better than Badina 10 and Mazzuchelli 10. Layered nose. Just sick. The tar and mint mixing is so good. Palate is juicy and deep with wonderful freshness and purity. Very balanced and suave but substantial tannins. So clean and pure. Lovely mid season dusty red cherry fruit. Terrific inner mouth aromas and a fresh, complex structured palate. Big tannins on the finish suggest further aging is warranted and it does “youthen up” when it gets air. Really balanced for such a big wine, even some finesse. 9.3 for now but let’s see what air does to it.

Terrific after some air. More round. Tannins much more velvety. Sweet fruit. So fresh and energetic. Terrific. So serious. Years to go.

This is best bottle of roccia Rossa I’ve ever had. So amazing. Nose of cigar, roses, so so old school. Licorice, mineral, loam, floral. So gorgeous, amazing sweet fruit, red and so pure. Velvety. So complex. Sweet tannins. Spices. Just so firm and insane. Amazing fruit sweet. — 2 months ago

Bramaterra Nebbiolo 2016

Nose is intense cherry and cherry lipstick. A hint of pine.

Palate is crunchy cherries. Deep dense fruit. Very delicious. Some spice.

More densely fruited than the average alto Piemonte wine.

There’s some surprising boringness here. No obvious flaws but no standout qualities either. Less vibrant than you’d expect from Antoniolo. — a month ago

I always liked his wines. Italian funk and acid.

What a nose. Embers, smoke, spice, loam, superbly mineral and almost saline. Beautiful cherry fruit under it all. Dark and so perfumed. Huge spice and aromatic depth while also being a kind of restrained wild. Lovely, penetrating aromas. Can’t get enough. Palate has just ridiculous juicy and dense fruit with substantial tannins. Bright cherry fruit and wonderful freshness. Huge acids. Terrific concentration, freshness and energy. This is so complete. A baby but still delicious. Leaves a fruit/tannin impression for minutes. Very solid 9.4. — 2 months ago
