Casot Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

Initially has the spice of a Latin lover feeding you fresh fruit. Then is followed by a finish as long as an arm-wrestling match between two teenage kids. ❤️🇮🇹 — 9 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1971

What’s the point of rating something this old? Fascinating, funky, and weird. Just what one might expect. Rapidly changed over an hour, up, down, up again till finally landing as almost pure vinegar. — 12 days ago

Manzola Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2013

Beautiful and approachable Barbaresco from a solid producer. Slightly rustic initially, yielding to mint, tart cherry, herbs, and walnuts. Delicious. Total Wine, Alfio Moriconi Selection. — 4 days ago

Asili Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

Rather tightly would at the moment but promises to be a success in the coming years as there is great tension to this wine, and decent structure. Needs time to open up. — 10 days ago

Another success for Marco Rocca. He doesn’t look back and while magnificent stuff is bottled here already, his best days lies ahead. This is seamless stuff. — 7 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1964

Very pretty nose with soft cherry, dried strawberry, and a gentle meatiness. Very pure and pretty. Dry on the finish with old wood. Haunting at the front but delicate and dry on the finish — 13 days ago
