Cantina Bartolo Mascarello

Barbera d'Alba 2017

Hard not to pick this off a restaurant wine list for 35 euros. We will probably get it on night 2 as well. I’ll see if I can link to the list. https://www.derbygrill.it/cms/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/LA-CARTA-DEI-VINI-Maggio-2021.pdf — 3 days ago

@Max Kelly definitely considered it but at that price point, I’m looking for a wine at its peak

Rivella Serafino

Dolcetto D' Alba 2013

2021/5/3-4 with Ningbo stewed pork with red fermented tofu and yakitori, itadori and mayonnaise, warabi and takenoko yaki onigiri. I was both curious and nervous about this considering my experience with the Montestefano. This also started out a bit ponderous and volatile, but on the second day it had calmed into a nice, bitter cherry dolcetto. — 7 days ago

Priavino Dolcetto d'Alba 2019

Much better than I thought. Medium bodied, nice structure and a very enjoyable sour cherry and chalky thing going on. A bit pricey for an everyday red but well made. — 6 days ago

9.0

Tastes better than many Barolo’s. The aromatic range is bit narrow with emphasis on warm, dark tonality and doesn’t seem like it is holding back much. Definitely a modern wine with polished fruit but better than many traditional Barolo’s that are just not well-made. — 5 days ago

Montaribaldi

Dü Gir Barbera d'Alba 2018

Dark ruby in color with a red/purple rim.

Strong fruity nose of blueberries, sweet raspberries, cherries, licorice, light oak, vanilla, earth, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, tobacco and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, black cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, light oak, vanilla, earth, licorice, spices, herbs, chocolates, peppercorn and light vegetables.

Short finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice Barbera from Italy. Much bigger than I expected it to be. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Still young and would be better in a few years. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years. A good quality wine.

Good right out of the bottle, and gets earthier as it opens up. After 90 minutes of airtime, tannins show up, and bring in more structure. After 3 hours, the tannins become grippy.

A good food wine that I paired with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

100% Barbera grapes were aged in New oak barrels for 20 months.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$25.

Barbera d'Alba 2016

Medium-bodied, relatively elegant Barbera showing dark fruit, lots of spices and herbs and quite a serious, brooding finish, substantial and persistent. — 14 days ago

Barturot Dolcetto d'Alba 2014

If hygge manifested itself as a wine it would be Dolcetto, and this great example of Dolcetto exudes hygge. Delayed posting from a few weeks back. — 17 days ago
