Pajana Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

1 hour of slow ox and tasting now as I pour it into a decanter. Sizable sediment but you get the feeling the most is yet to fall out. Crimson color. Raise the glass and you’re sniffing cherries and a fresh cigar while walking through a forest on a beautiful autumn day. In the mouth the feel is full, lacy acid, and a vine-covered wall of tannin. Finish lingers quite some time and I’m gonna need my toothbrush to scrape these tannins off. What we have here is a young adolescent. Fortunately I have a few more bottles and the next will wait at least another 5 years. — 3 days ago

Riserva Speciale Barolo Nebbiolo 1970

Thank you Dr. Frank! What a treat at lunch. Soft old Barolo nose. Dirt barnyard. Wow! You Gotta be kidding me on this 50-year-old! Talk about a gem. The fruit is still there. Sweet sour cherry absolutely dynamic continually changing quickly.  — 7 days ago

Cascina Dardi-Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Another terrific 2013 Barolo, and my favorite of the evening. Well integrated flavors, this balanced Barolo has what it needs to age for many more years, but thanks to the vintage. Is accessible now. Delicious. — 10 days ago

Barbera d´Asti Fiulot 2018

🙈 tasting 3rd wine
at wset level 2 course (6th meeting)
the class subject was 🇮🇹
four reds were poured

my guess was that it'll probably be nebbiolo, barbera, sangiovese and amarone. i came close.

besides the one with appassimento treatment guessing what is each one is far behind my tastebuds (for now 😊)

pale ruby red 👀

🍓, vanilla, 🥥, earth, tobacco and some wood 👃

high acidity.
low tannins.
medium body.

red fruit, earth and some oak 👄

medium 🎯

Rocche di Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Dense crimson with a tawny rim - the colour of cold black tea. Tarry dusty aromatic nuances, somewhat intoxicating in this excellent vintage. Menthol, Balsamic aromas and a note of dried meat. Fine resolved tannins. So easy to drink. Medium plus intensity. Like most Italian wines designed to accompany food but this was so good and rich you could have it on its own. — 10 days ago

Bussia Vigna Rocche Barolo Nebbiolo 2000

! !Yarivyo Wine Score!
9.2

This delicious Barolo from the 2000 vintage was a delicious treat and at age of 20 is is still full of life. The wine is well balanced, very elegant and sophisticated. The nose is a nice mix of black currents, black cherries, light touch of coffee and earthy notes, medium body, smooth and round. The finish is complex and delicious. My score 92, drink to 2024. — 11 days ago

Santo Stefano di Perno Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Full-bodied, slightly smoky Barolo that is in perfect balance. Silky smooth, with tannins that are integrating well. Dark cherry with dried violets... this is not a feminine Barbaresco (a personal favorite), but is still so so good. Thanks to Austin Wine Merchant for having a 2013 in stock. Wish my wine friends were with me in Austin to enjoy. A monster wine... give this one time. — 15 hours ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

4-5 hour decant at first thought barely opened this quality Barolo but in glass we got some preview of its future majestic state. Initially utterly sealed on the nose. Very strong tannins still need integration & the perfumed rose & Black fruits were coaxed out by much glass swirling. So not complete infanticide but kinda close. Still fascinating though to glimpse the inner power of a developing Barolo — 11 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Difficult after pulling the cork but opened up beautifully after 2h of decant. Wonderfull nose and good mouthfeel. Nevertheless way too young. Will need at least 2 more years. A rough diamond... — 5 days ago
