Vigneto Rocche Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Hosting a Barolo night. Wine #1. Plenty of crowd appeal. The wine shows plenty of dark red fruits, a note of licorice, and warm tannins, but the wine never seemed to fully open. Still a winner but we all expected a tad better. — 15 hours ago

Conca Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Complex and age worthy. Smoke and mint and earth and mushrooms and cherries. Finish is spicy and lingers on and on. — 20 days ago

Vigna Giachini Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Tasted double-blind. The wine presented as dark ruby but one could see through it (this should have been my clue; but I ignored that). On the nose, bright red fruits, some baking spices, some vanilla...tasted like it had seen French barrique. On the palate, there was a sweet attack with candied cherries and baking spices. Medium, long finish. Good balance. Firm but not punishing tannins. Good acid. I thought this was a 2015 Merlot-based, right bank Bordeaux from a good producer. I was completely out of sorts with this wine and to be honest, I can’t really blame myself since I rarely drink modern Barolo. I should have eliminated Bordeaux varietals based off the color alone which would have probably put me on a better track. Anyway, this bottle lacked a lot of the characteristics I crave in more traditional Barolo but was a good enough wine in its own right...just not to my tastes. — 2 months ago
