Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2010

Great example of what a Spanna from Alto Piemonte can be. Volcanic soil, traditional process and a great family. Red berries orange peel mint plenty of acid and low alcohol lightens the package. The bottle went empty quickly. — 4 months ago

Spanna Cinque Castelli Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo 1967

A much darker color than I would have expected from a 52 year old wine. Powerful, youthful and complex aromas of plums and tobacco. At this point your mind is racing , can the palate equal or exceed the nose because you know if it can you are in for a treat. A very alive , acid driven palate of plums, cherries and tea. Had an old vine creaminess component. After approximately 2 hours the wine started to take on a less open personality. — 5 years ago

What a treat—Have heard stories about the old Vallanas but started to think they were myths. Thanks for sharing. Curious how you feel about the new generation of Vallana, which often gets released with several years of bottle age, it seems (I like them, a lot).

@Peter Sultan have had a handful of ‘58s and most have been drinkable to wow.
I posted on a 1997 Gattinara a few years back that was wonderful. So funny because last weekend I purchased a bottle of their 2010 Boca for my GF’s “ cellar” ( which in this case means a mixed case in a box) . I have always found tremendous Q/PR with them🤫

Vallana Campi Raudi Nebbiolo Blend

What a wine and what a bargain. This is a Nebbiolo based blend from the far north of Piedmonte. Big, ripe, a bit tannic but very drinkable. And a 2009 library release just out for $22?! Will be back to get in volume. — 4 years ago
