Pelissero Pasquale

Bricco San Giuliano Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

*Disclaimer I sell this wine* Day 3 of a sample, paired with a late leftover dinner of cast iron grilled boneless pork chop with polenta and a white wine gravy. Beautiful almost opaque ruby color, with a bright nose of violets. Lots of licorice, chocolate and deep red fruits on the palate, gripping tannins on the finish. A nice way to wrap up the week! — 4 days ago

Asili Di Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

Terrific wine with lots of vibrancy. If Barbaresco is the queen of Nebbiolo, she's as tough as Elizabeth I or II. One for opening in several years. — 18 hours ago

Produttori del Barbaresco

Pora Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2005

Pora is one of 9 specific vineyards marketed as a Riserva after 4 years by the Produttori. We visited there several years ago and had a tasting of several of the distinct Cuvées. Rabaja and Asili would be 2 of the better known of these Cuvées. The Produttori is a great example of a cooperative working well for all the growers in the district. This 2005 Pora was medium Ruby in colour - transparent in spots. Aromas of earth dried rose petals and a touch of Tar and Tannin. Yes you can almost smell the Tannins! The light colour belies the power of this wine even at 14 years. On the palate sour cherries light tarry notes and masses of fine powdery Tannins - persistent and long. This wine demands food and it went well with Lamb Chops. If I had another of these I would leave it for at least another 5 years. Loved it. — 19 days ago

@Anthony De Blasi Yes Anthony - it’s up there for me as well. I was lucky enough to purchase some aged examples earlier this year while I wait for the 11s 13s and 14s to mature.

Falletto di Serralunga D'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

Reddish with some amber. Delicate nose, or maybe so sitting next to a Beaucastel that is like smelling salts. Notes of black cherry, red rose, some sappy fruit and a little earth. Nicely balanced in the mouth, better than I expected for the vintage. Not great but not bad. — 3 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

Via Coravin. Light garnet in color. Lighter in body. Heavy essence of strawberry on the nose. Anise, cola and black raspberry mid-palate. Med firm in tannins and a nice compliment to the Nuits St. George we had earlier in the evening. — 5 days ago

Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy

Martinenga Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1967

Winery founded in 73, still unsure if this was made at Produttori, who released their own 67 Cru Martinenga or if made at Marchesi di Gresy without commercial release 🤷🏻‍♂️ This seemed much different than the 67 Produttori I had tried, it had some strong cedar notes and was ashy. Taste was delicious, made up for a difficult nose. Was hoping for more, but still a great 👍🏽 — 17 days ago

Asili Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

Color starting to turn slightly as this 8 year old wine is right in its ideal drinking period. Sage, rose, raspberry, they all meld nicely in the glass. Delicious now and for a few years but not immortal like some red labels. — 18 hours ago

Montefico Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1971

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny. Translucent and bright appearance. Medicinal nose. Notes of dark fruit, spice, earth. Powerful perfume. In the mouth it’s refined and has great structure. Someone guessed old DRC, I’m in the Chambolle region. Nobody sensed Italian even with this bottle following the ‘71 A Conterno. Later in the evening it was full power Nebbiolo tho. Great treat to try this rare Giacosa vineyard. — 10 days ago

Had it at Antica Torre, Barbaresco for lunch, decanted in a very special decanter. Color light brownish, nose had tobacco, spices, some minerals , taste was soft tannins, and long aftertaste with some berries, earthy finish, a nice surprise, we just drove through the vineyard on our way to the restaurant . — 14 days ago
