Cascina Dardi Bussia Barbera d'Alba 2018

Mixed berries showing good intensity & freshness. These five way to a fresher cherry character with great acidity. The nose is a bit shy, but the wine is very good. Classically styled Barbera. — 7 hours ago

Papagena Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2011

Perfectly aging this Barbera d’Alba. Paired it with pasta with confited duck. Good combination as the acids in the wine stood up against the fat in the dish. — 16 days ago

Luciano Sandrone

Dolcetto d'Alba 2019

One of my favourite Dolcettos. It's bit more uptoned and acidic when compared to 2018 or 2017 but has all the typical dark fruits, spices and licorice just as supposed. This lasted untill 3rd day when it had gained weight significantly. Great food friendly dolcetto that needs bit more bottle age to shine — 21 hours ago

Comm. G.B. Burlotto

Barbera d'Alba 2019

Darker than the Langhe Nebbiolo and Pelaverga tried on same weekend and more purple than the Langhe Friesa. Compared to Burlotto’s Aves Barbera which is aged in wood, this is a lighter interpretation. Although I understand the best Barbera fruit goes into the Aves don’t underestimate this as it is bright and pure with the same plum accent. Nice — 15 hours ago

Cavallotto

Vigna Scot Dolcetto d'Alba 2018

Wine full of juicy fruit, packed with loads of joy. Red fruit, sweet cherry, some leather, lots of lavender and violets. Mild tannins, soft acidity, medium long finish. Wine made for easy evening, good for pizza and cold cuts. — 6 days ago

Poderi Colla

Nebbiolo d'Alba 2017

Albesi Langhe Barbera 1968

Surprisingly good and drinkable for its age, yet also not exceptional. The fruit is alive and in balance but short. — 18 days ago
