Riserva Antichi Vigneti Propri Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1964

Old Nebbiolo nose with sour cherry on palate for first two hours, then rose and red fruit for next hour, then as it was just hitting its stride it was gone - we finished it. Next time need to be more patient, if I’m lucky enough for a next time. Purchased from Walker Wines who has great old Nebbiolo offerings. — 9 days ago

Antichi Vigneti Propri Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1967

Like the ‘71 Mascarello a good cork and a high fill that is where the similarities end.
This was a stereotypical aged Barolo and I say that as a compliment. Beautiful aromas of cherries, leather ands dried leaves. This tasted very fresh due to the wonderful acid levels. Juicy cherries , mushrooms, tobacco and dried meats all fought to get the attention of my tastebuds. A finish that defied its age. Wish I had another bottle because I don’t think this one is going anywhere for years

@Steve Pollack @Steve Pollack I’m going to say it was black.

Very likely a library release. Borgogno is well known for doing this and IIRC the code on the back label will indicate such. They basically decant the bottles to remove sediment and top off with same vintage before recorking. I drank a ‘61 about seven years ago and it tasted young.

Ghemme Nebbiolo 2009

Ethereal Ghemme that comes pretty close to rivaling Rovellotti and Antichi Vigneti di Cantalupo, who for me are the benchmarks. Vivid and fleshy red fruit, with black truffle poking its head out behind. Ever changing in the glass. I would happily forgo drinking this and simply smell it all night. — 4 years ago

Love these wines! Alpine varietals & Nebbiolo are the bomb. Dove Valana?

@Peter Sultan This Ghemme is great, but it needs times. My buddy handles this wine for distribution in MA, and he almost brought a '13 last night, it would have been fun to taste a 6-year difference.

Collis Carellae Ghemme Nebbiolo 2010

Enormous nose of dried flowers, kirschwasser, rosemary, marjoram, almonds. Big ripe cherries in the mouth, followed by tannic notes that show up as dried violets, olives, old oak, cigar box. Delicate. For the first 45 minutes it seemed as though it was dying quickly in the glass, rather than opening up, but after two hours it really started to sing. A beautiful Nebbiolo. — a month ago

The aroma could show little more liveliness but harmonious and lots of reserve. — 5 months ago
