Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2012

9.2

The nose reveals; sweet & sour dark cherries, deeply, ripe & juicy strawberries, rhubarb & cranberry crossing, plum liqueur, blackberries, blueberries, candied raspberries, dark chocolate, limestone minerals, sandstone, anise to black licorice, dry, crushed rocks with blue, red, dark, fresh & withering florals with fields of violets.

The body is still firm, thick, grainy and full. The structure, tension are still tight. The length and balance are working their way into adolescence. Sweet & sour dark cherries, deeply, ripe & juicy strawberries, black raspberries, juicy, black plum, rhubarb & cranberry crossing, plum liqueur, blackberries, blueberries, candied raspberries, caramel, clove, touch of nutmeg, vanilla, dark chocolate, semi-sweet tarriness, understated herbaceousiness, limestone minerals, powdery sandstone leather, dry tobacco, saddle-wood to cedar plank, dark spice, sandstone, anise to black licorice, dry, crushed rocks with blue, red, dark, fresh & withering florals with fields of violets.

It’s still a youthful wine with another 10-15 years ahead.

I'm afraid to open any Barbaresco younger than this, I shy away until they have at least a 10th birthday. Nice notes.

Cantina Del Glicine

Vignesparse Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

Pale ruby with garnet secondary hues. Nose has candied cherries, peat, smoke meat, leather, toast, nutmeg, and tobacco. Palate is balanced with medium acidity and tannins. Smooth and elegant finish. #barbaresco #vignesparse #cantinadelglicine #nebbiololife #nebbiolo#winesofitaly #piedmontwine — 11 days ago

Castello di Neive

Santo Stefano Albesani Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

A medium garnet color with a wide rim. Classic Barbaresco nose of dried roses, cherries, and dark chocolate. Absolutely gorgeous on the nose. This is one of those producers where you just know that it’s going to be good. A fuller bodied Nebbiolo that’s dancing gracefully at the moment. Ripe tannins that do need a bit of air before the fruit can be fully uncovered. Silky smooth on the tongue and just plain delectable. Touches of leather and dried herbs to go along with the oak, stewed plums, and more cherries on the palate. Chocolate mousse and tobacco follow on the long finish. This can definitely hold up a for several more years but I wouldn’t blame you for opening now. — 3 days ago

Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2007

Probably a 9 for price quality ratio - great value in this Barbaresco, slightly on the acidic side. Had it with raw tapinanbour and bagna cauda tonight. Seamless matching — 3 days ago

Vigneto Brich Ronchi Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1997

I was afraid this was going to be too old. I was gladly surprised by this. The nose was divine, fully mature, a melange if cherry and modest oak in a velvety texture. Can last a few more years! — 10 days ago

Molino

Ausario Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2010

Not bad for a budget Barbaresco. Dark pour. Nose of rose petal and a hint of iodine and Italian herbs with dark dusty red fruits. Entry of this wine is a bit more acidic than I thought it would be. Black cherry, hint of cola, hint of anise. Middle is more terroir-driven. Finishes with black cherry fruit, green olive, tobacco leaf, black tea, truffle. Round character but honestly quite a bit of stiff oak tannin still present that dried the tongue. Impressed. I was honestly expecting this wine to be much lighter, more raspberry and cherry notes. At the price paid, this is honestly quite a steal. You can hold this, but I don't think anymore time in bottle is going to help all that much. — 4 days ago

Roagna

Pajè Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

I had eschewed buying Roagna's for a long time due to brett problems but clearly I made a mistake, because the two bottles I had recently were phenomenal! This 11' Paje was incredibly elegant, especially when you factor in the vintage. The nose is so enticing, with red cherries, plum, licorice, earth, dried roses, and menthol. The palate just oozes sexiness. The clarity is stellar, with a real generosity that just pulls you in, and wild state that adds a little intrigue. Plush red and black fruits, orange oil, herbs, spices, minerals, and some animale hints. The acidity is excellent, driving a long finish. Very fine-grained tannin and even discrete when compared to the 96' Pira Riserva I had a couple of weeks ago. This is really young, but I think the vintage does give it a sort of mellowed approachability at the moment (at least versus the 96' again, although certainly showing less density). Really starting to fall in love with this producer ♥️ — 10 days ago

Roagna is between the best in Barbaresco, but i do admit that I recall few episodes of bottles that weren't perfect. I guess we have to pay a little price to get to the top🤷‍♂️

@Ceccherini Cristiano Don't we all 🤣 Used to drink heaps of their langhe rosse. Punches way above the price point. Just need to get my hands on some crichet paje now.

I had their Dolcetto old vines by the glass back in Rome at the restaurant and it was delicious
Good luck with the hunt for the Crichet Pajé🤞🍀😉
