Riserva Bric Paradiso Roero Nebbiolo 2015

Tenuta Carretta Bric Paradiso Roero DOCG Riserva 2015: Beautiful nose. Bright red fruits. Cherry. Tobacco. Earth. Oak. A perfect balance with a smooth, dry finish. All in all, an excellent & true representation of the Nebbiolo grape varietal and the obvious, clear winner & favorite of the evening’s backyard wine challenge! This is a top Nebbiolo and one that I will store & savor again in years to come! Cheers🍷 — 2 months ago

Canorei Roero Arneis 2014

On the nose, day old citrus zest, culinary herbs, possibly a light pear note.
On the palate, citrus, thyme, clean finish, balanced acidity.

I like Arneis, but the main line market producers I've experienced always felt like they just wanted to bottle something from Roero and move on each vintage, this is nice and I would buy it again.

Moscato d'Asti

Prior notes still apply, wonderful bottle!

Light yellow-green on color. Nose is beautiful white flowers, Gardena, Honeysuckle and Orange blossom, just wonderful. Palate is lightly sweet, but so well balanced with savory notes, minor frizzante and medium-low acidity.

Final bottle from the cellar.

Bric Quercia Superiore Barbera d'Alba 2012

Light but very good pepper and fruit mixture of flavor. Slight dust on the sides of the tongue but perfect with a dry cheese. — 2 years ago

Bordino Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

Decanting...Planning to pair this with Osso Buco tonight, so it's going to be a little more time until I get to notes on this bottle. (The veal shanks are the size of an outstretched hand...I can't wait!)

Nebbiolo how I love you in all your forms...

On the nose, over ripe strawberry, dried cherry, smokey chocolate (oh how I'd love to eat smokey chocolate!).

On the palate, very smooth after 5+ hours decant with tannin only on the end of the finish, smoked truffle, dried strawberry, loamy mineral.

Revisit in 5+ years on remaining stock. Expected life 8-12 years.

Perfect pairing with Osso Buco, after a 3+ hour braise the veal was spoon-able tender.
