Very nice aged nebbiolo from the fine folks at Produttori de Barbaresco. But doesn’t rise to the level of their single vineyard riserva expressions - a step up from the basic barbaresco (also a lovely wine) but not quite beyond that. Decanted 3.5 hours which was a good call. Quite good freshness still. Tannins are there in spades, but with food (meatballs here) they are somewhat tamed and balanced. Some dark fruit with just a hint of raisin. — 14 days ago
A baby CdP, this 11+ year old was a bit tight upon opening, but unfurled like a beautiful rose with tangy spiced violet raspberries and that PEZ-like VERVE that went perfect with our homemade lamb meatballs with fresh naan. The medium weighted body with long floral finish with very poetic too :)￼ — 2 months ago
N: dark plum, violets, licorice
P: dark, sweet juicy fruits , a bit sauced or candies— plum, blackberry, boysenberry, black cherry. Touches of spice and darkchocolate. Rich, but juicy w good acidity. Tannins are smooth, ripe and a dusty.
Good with pasta with meatballs, but would also be good with meaty stews — 3 months ago
Wonderful. Light to med body. Great with pasta and meatballs! — a month ago
Ruby red in the glass. Medium bodied, fresh with a balance acidity and tannins. Sour cherry and red fruit entice your tongue. Enjoyable on its own or excellent pairing with Spaghetti / Sausages / Meatballs. Surprisingly a great pairing with fresh sardines and green olives.
Go for this excellent value and enjoy.

Still quite nice with meatballs and cream sauce, ($12) light and fruity — a month ago
So nice and soft with a very sentimental dinner I had alone except for my memories. Went easily with my late husband’s mother’s recipe for “gravy” with meatballs and sausage and my own homemade Italian bread still warm from the oven. — 2 months ago
Perfect in between Chianti. Between Classico and Reserva! 30 year old vines make this Sangiovese a stellar example of the region. Chocolate, berries and a slight balsamic vinegar touch. So tonight with the Spaghetti n meatballs this will shine…. @Kay Delectable this is the Vigneto Boscone Chianti Classico not the regular — 3 months ago
