Wow. More notes later.

Mushroom, tar, roses, cherry fruit, mineral and so so aromatic. Really gets in the deep nostril areas. Juicy and so so complex with wonderful purity and big tannins. Finish is a hint of licorice and a swarm of cherries. This needs 3-5 years but seems to really be a another winner at this estate.

What a difference (almost) a year makes. Stunning nose. Super aromatics. Yowza. Smokey mountain Nebbiolo. Yum. Isn’t that a Dolly Parton song? Old books. Earth, leather, so so good, feral and savory. Wow. Really. 9.4 nose. Wow. Super sweet and refined palate with amazing purity and super velvety tannins. Showing so well now. So distinctive and unique. But also so well made like the world’s best wines. Brilliant. — 25 days ago

So glad to see Barbaglia in the USA. One of our favorite stops in Alto Piemonte last summer.

Tannins, dark leather, tar, mature cherries, dried leaves, menthol. This could go another 10+ years, easily. Showing typical Nebbiolo characteristics. — a month ago

Deep, damson mid season cherry, licorice, anise, rustic nose, juicy, complex, huge furry tannins. Well made, decent length, balanced and pretty, elegant. Needs air.

On day 2 this is transformed. Ripe and rich with wonderful stylishness and pure deep fruit. Terrific wine.

Le Piane

Maggiorina vino rosso 2015

Lovely, pretty, largely Nebbiolo alto Piedmontese blend. Natural but clean and linear, with tart cherries, black tea, and rusticity. Lovely with food. Shimmering and tender and the sort of Nebbiolo that wanders more toward the heart than head. — 4 days ago

2016 is low aroma vintage, but the color is exceptionally vibrant and the structure highly ordered and organized. Bit static but not dull. — 14 hours ago

Antico Borgo dei Cavalli

Boca Nebbiolo 2006

Young Silvia Barbaglia makes fantastic wines in this tiny Northern Piemonte DOC. Boca is a blend from Nebbiolo and Vespolina. This 2006 has aged beautifully and smells like Nebbiolo dried roses, intertwined with Vespolina violets. Elegant and profound, perfectly balanced and very good length. Wish I had more of this in my cellar. — 4 days ago

This really came together after 30 minutes in glass. Highly umami with some juiciness still giving length. Totally overdelivered! — 21 days ago
