Serralunga d'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 2020

Reddish in color with light intensity.

Nice and elegant nose of red fruits with chocolate notes.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with cherries, red currants, earth, light wood, spices and coffee.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This young, 4 year old Barolo, is already drinking nicely, even by itself.
Well balanced and elegant.

This 2020 vintage was great for Barolo, and is very approachable right now. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years and beyond.

I've had the 2015 vintage a few years ago, and this vintage is drinking better. Complex with a soft mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better with some airtime. A good sipping wine, and will pair nicely with food too.

A blend from three different Nebbiolo Vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba. Aged in large oak barrels for 2 years.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$60.

Comm. G.B. Burlotto

Verduno Pelaverga 2022

2024 summer. Burlotto makes lovely wines all across the range; this had a limpid character befitting the lovely light color, but also a breadth and warmth that is typical of these types of wines from Piemonte — 10 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2018

It has been a little over a year since my last note on the 2018 vintage. Popped and poured, enjoyed over the course of an hour. The 2018 pours a pale garnet with transparent core; medium+ viscosity and no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with delicate notes of funky cherry, rose water, tar and dry earth. On the palate, the wine is dry with high tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long. A touch thinner than some of the “bigger” vintages but no less charming. I’m sort of a sucker for the 2018 vintage in how enjoyable these are to drink in their youth. Drink now through 2038 — 11 days ago

Solid stuff in pretty much any vintage. Just ordered a six pack of 2019 on pre-arrival. Salute! 🍷

Roero Arneis 2023

2023 vintage. Couple of bucks less and slightly better than the Arneis I picked up 3 months ago. Ridiculously cheap $18 resto cost and delicious. Would buy it but not exactly blowing through Arneis unfortunately and not ready just yet to go with it btg. Gawd, I could crush this for a spell. Quintessential Summer juice. 7.17.24. — 8 days ago

Basadone Verduno Pelaverga 2022

This is excellent red that punches well above its weight. One note, but very enjoyable. Full bodied, sour cherries, with a satisfying tangy finish. Wonderful chilled. — 5 days ago
