Cavallotto

Bricco Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

This is a stunning bottle in the making. Floral notes of crushed violets and roses, blackcurrant and cinnamon, followed by a very long mouth with high density of tannins that are well resolved. Was a bit of an experiment to drink this before 2035, but with decanting it was a mit more accessible. Buy what you can find. This is top notch Barolo. — 4 days ago

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1978

On opening, I felt like this was a bit simple and fruit forward.l, but give this an hour! The color is a beautiful tawny with browning on the edges. On the nose: tar, charcoal, roses, leather, dried flowers and raspberry. On the palate, fantastic acidity, dense dried red fruit, currant, strawberry, rose, leather, charcoal, amazing complexity, and still dense tannic finish. Stunning and near perfection. — 12 days ago

Don't open all your old wines yet, this thing will be over on Easter... You'll still need some for later in life.

I wish I could open some old bottles. It’s the perfect time to enjoy them over a good meal and a good book, but, without smell what’s a wine?

Sorry to hear about your lost sense of smell. Hopefully you recover it quickly.

Tenuta Cucco

Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba Nebbiolo 2013

At home, discussing depressing pandemic news and how Arizona is last in the nation in testing per capita. But then uplifted by this wine that we got at Costco. Light on the tongue with cherries then a slight bitter touch heading off a tight finish. Stay safe everyone. — 13 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 1967

Great virtual tasting tonight with my great friends. This wine was just gorgeous with a nose of truffles, potpourri, pine needles, and dried roses. On the palate, dried fruit and roses followed later by sweeter fruits and hints of balsamic. Really lovely. I just wish we could have tasted this together in person! — 4 days ago

Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

Day 1. Corked. So far 3 out of 3 corked. 3 more in storage. Day 2: So I decided to save the wine and try the next day ..., and it was amazing. Floral nose, red fruit, mineral, gorgeous. Whatever taint or funk was there during the first four hours disappeared 24 hours later. Wow. — 12 days ago

Vietti

Brunate Barolo Nebbiolo 1990

Now largely tertiary of course, dried leaves and dates. Still plenty of structure. Don't see many of these around!

Looking forward to listening to Antonio Galloni chat with Luca Currado of Vietti via Zoom on Monday. https://zoom.us/j/347846425?pwd=eWVOdWdaejlLTEowaWNSbE9RMm5ZZz09

Another absolute gem from balanced wine selections. Automatically it is sumptuous with notes of iodine, sweet cherry and subtle mocha with anise and dried sage as well. A fine, fine example of 2013 Barolo. Elegant and nuanced! Incredibly accessible at this young age — 8 days ago

Cantina Bartolo Mascarello

Barolo Nebbiolo 2000

Surprisingly mature. Stewed fruits, tar, leather, barnyard, herbs. More expressive on the palate than the nose. A bit too much heat on the attack for me, and generally just not enough *barolo* in what is a pretty delicious wine but one that I could easily have pegged as e.g. southern Rhône. — 13 days ago

A little catch up. Solid Barolo which checks all the boxes one expects. Very well balanced & leans more to the finesse elegance side of things. — 2 days ago
