Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2009

9.0

Light app tonight for dinner. Burrata, roasted garlic, two different cherry tomatoes picked tonight from the garden, pesto sauce, olive oil and Tondo balsamic vinegar. The only balsamic to use. Found it in Tuscany years ago and it’s all we use. You can order it on Amazon but, not inexpensive. All over, crostini’s drizzled with smoked olive oil. Soooo good!

The nose reveals, sweet & sour dark cherries, dark berry mix, stewed dark plum, blue fruit hues, touch of baked strawberries, tomato with leaf, sweet tarry notes, limestone minerals, dark rich soil, light baking spices and dark & blue fresh florals.

The body is medium full. Soft, round, tannins 70% resolved. The structure, length, tension has hit a high point. Ripe; sweet & sour dark cherries, dark berry mix, stewed dark plum, blue fruit hues and a touch of baked strawberries. Tomato with leaf, sweet tarry notes, on the long decant, add malt & light caramel, used leather, saddle-wood/cedar, limestone minerals, dark rich soil, medium dark spice, light baking spices and dark & blue fresh florals. The acidity is nice. The finish is good, balanced and lasts minutes.

Photos of, the tasting room at Produttori which is just under and to the right of the clock tower in the arial photo, arial view of the hilltop town of Barbaresco and our delicious small plate.

Producer note...Produttori is the third largest co-op in all of Europe. Be that they are a co-op, they still make some exceptional wines as well as great QPR wines. 🇮🇹

@Ellen Clifford If I remember you are a vegetarian? If everything vegetarian was this good, I’d be one as well. 😋 Cheers!

Rabaja' Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2009

Since @Keith Crump opened a Rio Sordo I took out a Rabaja (thanks Keith for inspiring me 😁). It just kept me coming back for more. I adore those type of wines that suddenly make me forget about being "concious" what I'm drinking and make me realise it's just good! — 3 days ago

Ceretto

Bricco Asili Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1982

🏅 Rating 95/100 (4,5🌟)

Double blind tasting.

Lots of finesse. Nebbiolo was guessed right away.
Raspberry is evident. Very elegant, but tannins are present and silky. Guessing the age was tricky. Pale color, but overall showed younger than its 35yo.

Gorgeous wine. Amazing longevity.

Labeled as Bricco Asili which is the winery in Barbaresco owned by Ceretto.

So technically it is Ceretto.

Manzola Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

The aromas just keep evolving and going....floral, cherries, roses, and mushrooms.
Tar, cherry, sun dried strawberries, and Italian dirt. So terroir driven.
