Bramaterra Nebbiolo 2014

9.3

Such a nice nose. Really light touch but pretty and detailed. So old school. Floral. Bright. High toned. Chestnut. Killer aromas. Better than last bottle. Palate is juicy, nimble and has terrific cherry fruit that lasts and lasts. Very fresh. Velvety tannins. A bit of an angular quality but needs air but also thats 2014 sometimes. Very tense vintage. I like it. Like 2008 in Burgundy. Terrific showing. Good concentration and depth. Nice sweet cherry fruit. — 15 days ago

Needs an hour decant. A bit dumb before that.

Fruity. Some spice.

There’s some surprising boringness here. No obvious flaws but no standout qualities either. Less vibrant than you’d expect from Antoniolo. — 3 months ago

Uvaggio Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2013

Day 2: You can smell the spice, black pepper hits first with red cherry and dry dirt and a lilac or subtle lavender. The tannins are still present with acidity down the side of the tongue and around the teeth. The black pepper is more subtle on the palate, but still very much there. Tart red cherry, pomegranate, more lavender and some tree bark. It’s nice. A bit more fruit on day 1. Probably needs 3 or so more years. — a month ago

This is best bottle of roccia Rossa I’ve ever had. So amazing. Nose of cigar, roses, so so old school. Licorice, mineral, loam, floral. So gorgeous, amazing sweet fruit, red and so pure. Velvety. So complex. Sweet tannins. Spices. Just so firm and insane. Amazing fruit sweet. — 4 months ago

Cascina Cottionano Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2018

This wine nicely straddles the line between an accessible Nebbiolo and a crisper high-altitude red. There is an interesting note of mint in the aroma. Firm acids but not too sharp. Well integrated red with with bright berry flavors, and dusty, mild, tannins. — a month ago
