Cottá Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

8.9

Tawny and ruby in color with a good amount of translucency. On the nose, strawberry, cherry and florals. On the palate, strawberry, cherry, medium body, with a medium fruity finish. Tannins are nice and acidity is rather strong more than balancing it out, perhaps a bit too much for my preference. $63 at B-21. — 6 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 1978

78 Sottimano Barolo. Made by Andrea's father, I think. No vineyard designation. Must be a blend. Still lovely but past it's prime. Funk and fruit, tar, iodine, ample acidity, resolved tannins. — 5 years ago

Currá Barbaresco 2015

Sottimano Curra Baebaresco 2015. Tawny and ruby coloration with some translucency. On the nose, rose, florals, dark cherry, anise, ripe plum, aged balsamic, chocolate and forest floor. On the palate, some red berries and cherry, but pretty strong and tight tannins. Will revisit after decanting a bit more. It’s been a little over 2 hours at this point. After another hour, cherry, anise, and a finish of same. Tannins are still very present. A bit too tight and acidic for my taste. $90 at B-21. — 13 days ago

Do you think more time takes this to a higher level or has it reached its potential?

Perhaps a bit more backward from magnum, but decanted for 2 hours. It has modest further upside, imo.

Le Barbarine Riserva Valtellina Superiore Sassella Nebbiolo 2006

Very transparent. Almost lighter than the Sottimano Barbera, surprisingly. Stood up to trotter and stewed beef rib pastas well, fun. — 7 years ago
