Vigna Martina Barbera d'Alba 2016

Popped and poured; consumed over a few hours. The 2016 Barbera "Vigna Martina" is deep, dark ruby with an almost impenetrable core. More than ample in the fruit department with all the dark berries. However, it's got enough of the non-fruits: the inorganic earth, purple flowers, some herbs and spices, to leave one in no doubt of its origin. This is certainly one of the more polished versions of Barbera. As for longevity, even at 6 years post vintage, this seemed fairly primary. That being said and based off my experiences with Barbera in this category, I expect the secondary characteristics of leather to begin emerging in the next couple of years. Tasty now and should continue to reward through 2030. — 2 months ago

Vallegrande Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2006

Popped and poured. The 2006 Vallegrande pours a garnet color with a slightly orange rim. Medium+ viscosity with no signs of sediment and no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is beginning to express some secondary notes but still being led by fruit: cherries, dried herbs, some tar, red flowers, and spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin (which is integrating well) and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is medium+. Drinking well now with some patience and should continue to do so for another 5-10 years. — 25 days ago
