Bruno Giacosa

Falletto di Serralunga D'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

A special wine tonight. This 1996 Giacosa was in terrific shape from the first pour. We let it collect itself in a decanter for 3 hrs and drank it over a leisurely dinner in Vermont. It was soft, elegant, warm, and inviting. Couldn’t put it down. The fruit was dissipating but it’s secondary notes were so sexy. A great wine. — 6 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

Very reminiscent of the 2010 non-cru Barbaresco but with even more mid palate concentration. Closed for the first day but revealing some lovely perfume on the second. Tannins are surprisingly well-managed, showing flashes of what will be a very elegant wine in another 5 years. Pound-for-pound this is still one of the best buys in Barbaresco. I’m giving perhaps one extra point for long-term potential. — 13 days ago

really nice fruit—and it’s Italian. A very pretty wine. Not the leathery rustic hard wine I expected. — 6 days ago

Cascina Roccalini

Roccalini Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

My first experience with Cascina Roccalini was last year with the 2013 vintage and I was hugely impressed so I was very excited to try the 2014 version. Popped and poured; initially bright ruby in the glass but became noticeably darker, turning to garnet after about fifteen minutes. The nose on the 2014 Roccalini was opulent; far and away the freshest and most interesting of the group in the first couple of hours with beautiful, ripe cherries, bruised red delicious apples, tar, baking spices and roses. So much pleasure! After about hour three, the roses gave way for Easter Lilies...which I can't ever recall in a red wine before. However, around hour five, the Roccalini started to fall apart and the finish became watery and thin which is exactly what happened to the 2014 "Sori Paitin"; further reinforcing my feeling that the 2014's will be a vintage to enjoy while they are younger and preferably within the first couple hours of being open. Drink now or before 2022. — a month ago

Vie Erte Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2010

So happy to have this wine from the Cigliuti sisters. Great vintage, subtle and balanced notes of tobacco, almond cherry, mushroom... with nice acidity and integrated tannins. Drink now... could hold if you prefer tertiary flavors and your wine was stored better than mine. Lovely, understated Barbaresco. — 12 days ago

9.1

From a difficult vintage a lovely elegant wine. Raspberry and cherry on the nose with some lovely spice. Tangy sweet confectionary aromas as well. Tree bark and earth. Lovely aromas. Really much better than last time. Palate is dense and tannic but with good fruit, licorice and red cherry with big licorice on the finish. Almost anise. Nice opulent hit in the mid palate. Nice wine. — 13 days ago
