Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Decanted, notes from 2 hrs open. When I taste young barolo: I'm reminded of the joke: man goes to the doctor and says: "it hurts when I do this"...doctor says: "don't do that". I wanted to see what 16 fruit is like, but was, I think understandably, nervous about immense tannin. On the nose: pure sweet blackberry and blood orange, with a hint of smoke. So primary, but the fruit is beautifully pure. On the palate: lovely acidity, tar, blackberry, fantastic density, and just amazingly dense and drying tannin on the finish. Will I still be able to drink wine when this is at peak? Will my kids? — 4 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

On the nose, rose pedal, wet bricks and leather. Some orange peel and gravel as well. Super delicate, good acidity, soft velvet tannin. I drank the 16’ langhe the other week and wow is this so much softer and more Burgundian. Super interesting and finessed. Lovely Barolo. Even for a lesser year. — 2 months ago

Via Nuova Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Lots of tannin structure showing great balance, aromatics with a velvety, silky texture & a great future needing more time in the cellar — 3 months ago

Mosconi Barolo Nebbiolo 2015


Superb nose and scents of tobacco, herbs, dark fruit, spices and a floral character as well, the nose keeps on giving. The palate is not as impressive, nice acidity and typical powerful Barolo, lacks a bit of finish and elegance to it, too young for sure but doubtful it will improve that much.

Superbe nez très expressif, exubérant même et complexe, du fruit, des herbes, tabac, floral. La bouche est typée, une acidité bien sentie, assez puissant mais manque un peu de fini et de finesse, c’est très bien mais pas prêt encore et je ne sais pas si cela va se bonifier tant que cela. 90-91

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1961

Bought over 15 yrs ago from the winery... a little funk on opening and then the wine just got better and better like a freight train... a great 60 yr old bottle that belied it’s age and probably will go strong for another 20 yrs — a month ago

On sale from eataly for about 20. Really smooth and fruit forward, tons of ripe berries and stewed notes. Cleans up a bit on the finish. Some tobacco on the nose and somewhat chewy tannins. Can’t say it’s terribly complex but definitely delicious. Could probably use a few more years! — 2 months ago

Great barolo and especially for this price point. Will order this every time when at Nociolla on Ojai. Gem of a wine at a gem of a restaurant 👌🏽 — a day ago

Amornero Primitivo Negroamaro 2018

What a surprise!
For now 92 if it’s only for the silking and lingering aftertaste of pure chocolate.
We give him ( 14,5 %) some more rest and he wil get even better
