Vino Serralunga d'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo

Early 70s vintage most likely. No vintage label. In great shape. Double decanted, and a classic aged Nebbiolo comes through. — 3 months ago

Gabutti Barbera d'Alba 2013

Every time I’ve walked into the cellar, this bottle has been starring at me and since I was making pasta alla puttanesca, I figured it was as good a time as any. Definitely on the high end for Barbera d’Alba but I’ll be damned if it ain’t worth every penny. Decanted for about an hour prior to dinner. This was extraordinary on the nose. Dark fruit dominated with baking spice, in particular, there was a significant aroma of nutmeg. The other obvious bit on the nose was, and you’ll have to bear with me here, engine shop floor. Like, the smell of walking into an old mechanic’s garage. As weird as that sounds, it was awesome. On the palate it’s big with dark fruit and spices. Tangy finish. Firm but fair tannin. Balanced. So delicious on its own or with food. Drink now with an hour decant or hold. This will be really good for years to come.

Barolo Chinato Nebbiolo

The pièce de résistance on a night of amazing friends, food and wine. My first Cappellano Chinato and this was a stunner. Not quite amaro but definitely on the savory side. Loads of roots, mint, anise and other herbs. Paired with the fudge brownie. I can’t wait to have this again some day. — 3 months ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1962

This wine was utter perfection! Black and White pepper, stewed Bing cherries, White truffle, super reduced balsamic, day old roasted chanterelles, tannins are fully integrated, but acid is still lively — 7 months ago
