Barbaresco, Cuneo

Prunotto

Cantina S. Cassiano Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1967

1967; 3H Decant.

Nose has dried roses, tar, dried orange peel, dried Bing cherries, wet leather, moist leaves and shaved dark chocolate.

Palate has dehydrated tart cherry, dried orange zest, moist garden soil, sweet cherry notes, medium tannins and light acidity remains.

Evolving and expanding with each sip, complex flavors continue to reveal, not slowing down at all.

A truly exceptional bottle of wine. Made by Beppe Coppa, one of the greatest Lange winemakers. A powerful vintage according to my trusted source on old Italian wine.

@Pooneet K @Ron R We try to open the classy stuff now and then, can't appreciate a bottle that still has a cork in it.

Case in point. Same vintner. Same vintage. Same varietal... Softer all around with licorice notes. Acidity at medium, medium plus tannins but not overwhelming.

Santo Stefano Di Neive Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1997

Tawny reddish color with bricking and light rims. While it looks thin in the glass, the nose packs a wallop. Notes of black cherries, rose petals, some dark wood, some licorice and a bit of tar. Very fragrant. In the mouth it's solid but missing a little in the mid-palate. In a good drinking window. The nose is the thing here. — 2 days ago

Happy Mother's Day! Resin, cherry, white pepper, on the nose and palate. Very sharp, chalky and mouth tightening tannins with medium plus acidity leads to that eye squinting that you may remember from sour Now N Laters or Sour Charms. This is definitely not a polished form of nebbiolo, but I respect the effort. La Ca' Nova's other Barbarescos are better. Stay tuned.

This is simply an intense, masterful, delicious bottle. High tone, with an intricate and developing nose of rose water, amaretto, fresh sawdust, rock dust, and white pepper. Palate is intense with long deep juicy red cherry feel, and powerfully grippy but finessed tannins. Rounds out with tar and crushed granite, and a long building finish.

Darn. Polishing off the bottle four days later and this def is one of my fave barbarescos of recent memory. Such purity and linearity, and gaining precision not losing it! Rieslingesque in a way. I would buy a case of this even though I have nowhere to store it.

50 Anniversario 1958 2008 Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2008

Very nice aged nebbiolo from the fine folks at Produttori de Barbaresco. But doesn’t rise to the level of their single vineyard riserva expressions - a step up from the basic barbaresco (also a lovely wine) but not quite beyond that. Decanted 3.5 hours which was a good call. Quite good freshness still. Tannins are there in spades, but with food (meatballs here) they are somewhat tamed and balanced. Some dark fruit with just a hint of raisin. — 17 days ago

Absolutely pristine fruit on nose. So elegant, silky, energetic, wonderful cherry, strawberry and dried herbs on the palate. Really pretty sweetness.

This outshone the D’Angerville Champans when tried side by side. Stunning find
