Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

Day 1. Corked. So far 3 out of 3 corked. 3 more in storage. Day 2: So I decided to save the wine and try the next day ..., and it was amazing. Floral nose, red fruit, mineral, gorgeous. Whatever taint or funk was there during the first four hours disappeared 24 hours later. Wow. — 2 days ago

Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1988

This is still really dense and packed. Great gnarly intense fruit. There’s a lifted cherry play doh note on the edges but the primary thing is iodine and lean focused fruit. There’s leather and gamey plummy stuff. Soured and distilled. Great purity and a tarry, luscious focus. Still decades ahead but this is serious, quite austere fruit. Wow — a month ago

Santo Stefano di Neive Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2000

After 20 years of preserving, the heaviness has turned into sweet and berry flavor. A bit of chocolate and earth taste. Super nice — 25 days ago

Falletto di Serralunga D'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 2005

18. the nose announces a rich, complex wine. It’s complete, too, and very long. The first of 6 bottles - hard not to have another soon. — 2 days ago

Collina Rionda Di Serralunga Barolo Nebbiolo 1985

Translucent cherry red. A spectacular nose. Black cherry, dried herbs and leather with a whiff of tobacco. Beautiful balance on the palate. Savory and bright. Quite lifted with a great, light intensity. Amazing. — a month ago

Racy, red fruit, silky, modern, a bit hot. Better than last year but still needs a few more years. — 7 days ago
