Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

Time Tested

03 was historically hot & dry. Did Monprivato succeed despite these conditions?

DAY 1
Served the wine with the Vinloq System which allows nitrogen to be pulled into the bottle with pouring
👀Brown/orange mixed with red
👃Cherries, tobacco, tar & roses. Some stewed/dried fruit
👅Mature. Florals and fruit are present. Light. Could use more acid. Easy to drink. Balanced

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my fridge

DAY 10
Nice aged notes. Savory. Okay precision. Tannins are good. Kept improving in the glass

DAY 17
👃Classic & beautiful with aged notes. Finally what I was hoping for👍
👅Drinking well. Cherry. Significant tar. Savory

Similar on the 3 days, but the nose was most beautiful on DAY 17

The pedigree was apparent here in this lovely barolo despite the vintage conditions. Balance was retained with enough precision to allow the Mascarello Monprivato personality to come through👏

Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

The post COVID slump buster. Classic Barolo profile - cherries, dried rose, deep tannins. Tight on day 1. But love that I can have a glass, recork bottle and know it’ll taste even better the next day. — 3 days ago

Castelletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

Popped and poured. The 2014 “Castelletto” is garnet with an transparent core and very slight staining of the tears. On the nose, cherry lozenge, roses, dried green herbs, tomato leaf. On the palate, the wine is dry, high tannin, medium++ acid. On the palate, cherry candy, cherry raisin, dried earth and iron minerals. A little thin. Long finish. The nose is more interesting than the palate at this stage. I gotta wonder if time will be kind to the 2014 vintage? Anyway, fun to check in on. — 8 days ago

Vigneto Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Consistently Brilliant

Burlotto’s Monvigliero is one of my favorite wines in the world 🌎

DAY 1
Served with the Vinloq System
👃Needs an hour in the glass and 65F/18C. Underripe strawberry, eucalyptus, herbs, & roses. The olive tapenade arrives last. Can a wine smell silky?(synesthesia?)
👅Red cherry fruit, herbs, olives, tar & florals. Velour texture. Tar and cherries linger on the long and lovely finish. Elegant & refined

Slow Decanted the remaining wine in my fridge

DAY 11
👃More fruit than before? Smells totally amazing!
👅The elegant side of Barolo. Total class. Please don’t let this glass empty🙏🏼

The wine was stellar on each occasion 🍷

Day eleven?

@"Odedi" Yes. My notes here and on Instagram @Vinloq.notes show how wines evolve when served with the Vinloq System. Check out Vinloq.com for videos/info etc. It’s a simple way to keep all wines from oxidizing for 7-10 days. Better made/cellar worthy wines often improve. Every wine is different. I show my results with my notes
Hope that helps.
BTW, I follow you here and on Instagram and appreciate your thorough posts👍

Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

N:Wow that’s interesting, Cherries(black), tar, lots of red flowers, salt!, citrus rind like English marmalade,
Granted it’s new glasses and I haven’t done a hth.
P: Cherries, Strawberries, tarry viscosity, ready to go after 2+ hrs out. Delicate tannins present, a dark, brooding wood/soil quality is there. Almost chocolate on the nose when you sip. As this airs, tannins build.Nice acidity balance, beautiful wine
Thanks @fasselections

Lazzarito Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

So powerful from the nose through the long and juicy finish, beautifully resolved, round and delicate at the same time. Red flowers, vanilla-infused bright cherry, hints of asphalt. Savoury. In a perfect place after short decant. — 3 days ago

Very developed but some red fruit still punches through. Still grippy. Comes on in the glass just when you think it’s OTH. Red licorice — 3 days ago
