Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

That great Barolo coloring pale at rim and darkening toward center. This was not focused on opening but got there after 2 hours. Truffle cherry earth and a full palate experience. Lots of weight to this wine and it stays heavy on the back end. Went very well with the homemade bucatini. — 13 days ago

Lecinquevigne Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

2017: so far, 2017 seems to be a drink now vintage. So approachable already. Imagine a rose petal rolled between your palms…that’s how I perceive the nose, with tea and camphor…but imbued with a sweetness. — 7 days ago

Vigneto Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

So pure, whole cluster & finessed with stunning aromatics. Drinking more like a great GC Burg than a Barolo. Just an awesome vintage for Burlottos Monvigliero. — 19 days ago

Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

Opened very slowly. Little sediment and only light staining on the cork. This was without signature for the first 30 minutes. Very slight cherry and tar notes. Pleasant but nothing much evident. After 2 hours of decanting it opened and was more resonant but it never exceeded “generally nice”. Nothing was amiss but nothing zoomed or was special. Finish was not particularly long. Tannins were mellow. Bouquet was modest but somewhat inviting. Color was pale with orange rim. This was an auction purchase. — a month ago

Bricco Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2018

Ruby with a bouquet of fruit, spices, leather, oak and rose petals. On the palate flavors of cherry and raspberry with notes of pepper, mint and cacao. Long finish, nice balance with fine soft tannins ending with earthy sweet notes. Just starting to drink now! Will continue to age. — 19 days ago

Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Cherry and dark fleshy fruit is popping here. Sumptuous wine. Lots of heft depth and length. I drank this a bit young and it will clearly be better in the future but it’s still definitely fantastic now. — 19 days ago
