Preda Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Great taste but seems a bit harsh on the nose which to me impacts the taste. Great smooth flavor though! — 9 days ago

Cascina delle Rose

Rio Sordo Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2011

Velvety and somewhat voluptuous for a barbaresco. Tannins are starting to be well integrated and masked by the fruit, with only a little noticeable tannin on the finish. Nice and drinking well now, but I’d wait a couple years. — 2 days ago

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Textbook old school Barolo, all about the tar, leather, and roses with red fruit adding some vibrancy, enjoyable but understated and tight at the moment, it really needs more cellar time to deliver its full potential. — 5 days ago

Asili Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

A soft ruby color with cherry red accents. Stunning nose of herbs, spices, truffles, and black tea. It goes without saying that this is a just a baby and should be held for a few more years but it’s honestly pretty hard to resist. Elegantly structured with nice balance, there is certainly some initial tightness going on here which a long decant helps with. Signature expressive Barbaresco profile with plenty of cherries, mushrooms, licorice, and that old Italian leather I love. Still years away from maturity but so good right now. — 24 days ago

Cascina Adelaide

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Color is light ruby with a bit brown and orange note on the rim. Nose is quite light with pleasant sweetness, some black tea, a bit savory spice, and a bit strawberry. Taste of very solid tannins, good acidity, a bit wet mushroom, indeed very Pinot noir like, a bit tobacco leaves, a bit cherry and vanilla, and a bit peppery. Aftertaste with some more additional zest, medium lingering. She is interesting. Light on the color yet very solid and young on the taste still. Very good experience. — 10 days ago

Cascina Cottionano Bramaterra Nebbiolo Blend 2016

Rich mefium Ruby color and a perfect balance of black fruit, tar and earthy violet. This is a lovely, elegant red that is light enough to go with fish and flavorful enough to stand up to a spicy ragu. Total win — 9 days ago
