@Ron Siegel good to know. Sad to see so many of these opened way too young…

Eric, This of course will develop further but was open enough where if you wanted to open you could enjoy it now. Cheers!

Cascina Francia Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2005

After being disappointed last week by another questionable Monfortino I decided to open a different wine from the same producer - a Conterno Francia 2005. But this one purchased from my local wine shop. It was as outstanding as always. Strong on the nose from the first pour. Heady earthy aromatics. Beautiful in the glass clear on edge with orange ring. The wine grips nicely on the sides. Cherry bursting through and the finish lingers ever so tantalizingly long. Sampled with some Italian truffle cheese - it made for a nice Sunday afternoon! — 2 months ago

Are there still fakes circulating around the auction market? Like back in the days of Rudy Kurniwan?

Sadly yes. Learned the hard way. Onward and upward though!

Cascina Dardi-Bussia Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Medium to deep Ruby with aromas of fruit, spices, leather, and chocolate, rich and robust wine from a hot vintage, aged in oak for 36 months. On the palate flavors of cherry and ripe raspberry with notes of pepper, spice and earthy cacao. Long finish, nice balance with fine tannins ending with earthy spice notes. Nice! — 6 days ago

Cascina Adelaide

Fossati La Morra Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Cherry cobbler, floral perfume, with the slightest tar undertones. Cherries, tart raspberry, rose pedal, tobacco, and mushroom jump out on the palate, which is much more lively than the nose. Excellent length with chalky red fruits lingering. Modern style. Single vineyard from La Morra cru. Drink or hold. — 7 days ago

I’m partial to this Rabaja. The base cuvée Maggiur doesn’t do anything for me, and the others (Solis, Asti?) are not bad, but don’t have the energy of this Rabaja.
