Bricco Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2019

Other ratings called this “closed” which I completely agree with. The dense flavors took forever to open up. I popped it at noon for a 7:30p dinner of chick pea and potato pasta, and it was still developing. Highly tannic, but so layered if you have the patience. Darker fruits, yet still some tart red cherry, lavender, rose petals, and ashy dryness. Complex, classic Barolo (from my limited experience). I’ll save my second bottle to see how it develops. — 2 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2001

Calm and poised. A little tight. Some gnarly undertow and contained inky fruit. Less pretty than the other 01’z alongside. — 3 days ago

Bottle from the 2020 vintage was lush with grape mouth feel, comforting over a long cool evening. $25.  — a day ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2019

Medium to light ruby , wide ruby garnet rim . Spiced red cherries , with raspberry jam , menthol , grafite , liquorice touches. On the palate juicy spiced sweet red fruits with those liquorice notes and dried herbs. Good balancing acidity and velvety but grippy tannins and slightly noticeable alcohol. Good length with a liquorice, cherry tinged finish. Enjoyable now though will age well over the next 10 years or so . — 8 days ago

Sperss Langhe Nebbiolo 2001

Quite tense and grippy. Plum and black cherry, a hint of licorice and a steely spine. Young still. Hard to judge but beautifully balanced components — 3 days ago

Etichetta Bianca (White Label) Carema Nebbiolo 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Carema Etichetta Bianca is laced with sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, mint, dried flowers, crushed rocks and Alpine herbs. This is an especially floral, savory vintage for the Etichetta Bianca, a wine that impresses with its energy, verve and class. The only thing missing here is a bit of freshness and depth.

Bricco delle Viole Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Brick red fading into brown. Aromas of black and white teas, rose and hibiscus petals, dried cherries, dried leaves, chalk, and clay. Loving the earthiness and complexity. — 3 days ago
