Barbaresco Nebbiolo

From a 3L bottle that I have cellared since release. I always hesitate to open these large format bottles, instead making excuses to hold them for longer since they tend to age at a glacial pace. However, we were hosting a large group of people for my 40th birthday dinner and since we were having lamb and rice, and big bottles are meant for big parties, and the world hasn’t been able to enjoy many big parties over the last 14 months, I figured WTFN. In an attempt to maximize the potential of the bottle, I pulled the cork almost 30 hours prior, a recommendation from by buddy Tim who tends to know a lot more about these things. I left the bottle in my cellar, allowing it to slow-ox. By dinner the following evening, this was absolutely singing. Gorgeous, translucent ruby color with a slight brownish rim. Ripe red fruits just ever so slightly stewed, red flowers, dry earth, and dried Mediterranean herbs. This bottle was positively bursting with energy! Bone dry. Medium+ tannin; medium+ acid. The finish was long and somewhat saline and was an absolutely sublime pairing with our Khaleeji fare. A fabulous bottle and a much better showing than the 2013 (standard format) that I recall drinking a few years back. — 9 days ago

Riserva Ovello Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

My first check-in with the 2011 “Ovello”. Popped and poured. Consumed over two days. On the nose, predominately red fruited with raspberry and pomegranate, walnut, some spices, red flowers and forest floor. On the palate, red fruits, almonds, and forest floor. High tannin and medium-plus acid. Overall, this is a very serious wine and tremendously satisfying. It held up really well over the two days it was open…which leads me to believe that these have a long life yet ahead. I’m very happy to gave several bottles remaining and look forward to checking in on their development for years to come. — 7 days ago

Vigna Rongalio Meruzzano Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2006

2006. Enjoying this bottle even more than the one I had six years ago. I noted that that bottle had a little brett that was “interesting”, but I can’t find any in the complex aromas that are bursting from the glass! All the Nebbiolo flavors are there and the tannins were only noticeable after lunch was finished. — 12 days ago
