Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Very approachable indeed. Still a little shy, but beautifully balanced with liquorice, leather and dried floral notes on the nose, with an earthy palate that finishes with insistent tannins. Finished a main of beef, then needed to bring out some cheese to restore saliva levels. Decanted for four hours, but keen to leave this overnight and see how it develops. — 6 days ago

La Morra Barolo Nebbiolo

Lovely and accessible 2015 Barolo. More ripe red fruit, even some apple…. but the typical Nebbiolo notes remain prevalent. You could let this sit for 5 more years, but it’s really good now with some air. — 2 days ago

Cicala Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

Dark tawny color. Mostly opaque. Obvious Nebbiolo nose. Notes of anise, tea, rose petals, some balsamic vinegar and a little tar. Silky and smooth in the mouth. Tannins fully resolved. Almost sweet in its finish. This for me is at peak and is in a great drinking window. — 10 days ago

Past few years I’ve been finishing off my 89 and 90 Cicalas, and was very pleased to see how nice this 99 shows.

Sizzano Nebbiolo 2014

Now we’re talkin. Haven’t had a Sizzano in like 37 years. Dang. Relatively youthful color. Nose is lively and high-toned. Floral, bright cherry and red fruit, loads of crushed rock-infused dry warm gravel. Intense yet light-footed in the mouth. Forceful acidity buoys macerated cherry flavors that turn minerally as the finish extends. Some soft tannin hidden in there too. Will last and improve over the next several years but really fine now. Go Spanna! — 9 days ago

Gallina Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Another truly superb 2016 Barbaresco. It’s a modern style, but has excellent balance. There’s a very generous core of surprisingly juicy cherry fruit here, but the tannins are ample and muscular. Glorious aromatics. This is a real winner. — 6 days ago

Gallinotto Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

A steal at $38. Filthy, so good. Traditional style barolo. Decanted for about 45 minutes and it is singing. Drank with pasta with red sauce and meatballs. — 4 days ago

Nightshade Columbia Valley Nebbiolo 2015

Rose and Rosemary nose marry!
Light delicate floral side of Nebbiolo. Pale purple petal notes. Bright acidity. As if a rosey grape adult Jell-O shot melted into your mouth and asked for a date with a caprese salad and pasta pomodoro. That would pair deliciously!

Vigneto Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

This was a little more shut down than past btls but with air revealing its greatness. Whole cluster showing lots of purity & elegance with notes of cherry, strawberry fruits, spice, rose petal & violet. Beautiful balance & length that needs more time but hard to resist now. — 7 days ago

Sorì Paitin Riserva Vecchie Vigne Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2007

Wow. So good. Everything I want in aged Barbaresco. Black cherry, wet leather, brambles, violets, wet earth. Tannins are well integrated and acid is there in the background. — 4 days ago

Love this blend from Scavino. This is young but it showed very nicely and great Barolo example to introduce friends to the beauty of Piedmont — 17 hours ago
