Franco Conterno

Sette 7 Anni Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Lighter color and body but surprisingly large tannins and flavors. Aromas of ripe plums, dark cherries and leather. Ripe cherry and Dr. Pepper flavors with some tobacco notes. Powerful with bracing acidity. Long finish with lots of tannin. Solid! Nicely aged. — 10 days ago

Bordón Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2011

Incredible spice on the nose. White pepper, baking spice and hints of Chinese 5 spice and tarragon. Black fruit is there, but it’s almost between black and red. Black currant. Nice long finish. The big oak you would expect from A rioja gran reserva.

It’s lighter in colour and body than you may expect. Still has youthful acidity and substantial tannin. Prime is probably 5 years away and it could go for 10.

Franco Serra

Barbera d'Asti 2019

Dark plum color, musty, blandish nose. Balanced, not sweet nor dry, yet not super juicy. Lots of good grape skin, plum skin bite. — a month ago

Reserva Bordón Rioja Tempranillo 2013

Mellower than anticipated, perhaps because of its age.

Tastes like cherry cola would if cherry cola was hearty rather than sweet.
