Barolo 2016

9.3

Killer nose and killer color. Gorgeous nose, spice, orange rind, roses, so precise and linear. Cherry flower, licorice. Like a Seurat painting. So detailed and complex. Precise and perfumed. Palate is fresh and incredibly energetic. Gorgeous. Wow. What freshness and energy. So clean. Big medium cherry fruit and unreal precision. Really well made. Palate has a lovely bit of opulence. Awesome tannins and length. This is such high level winemaking. This is like almost Germanic in its precision. Great inner mouth aromas. Really elegant. This is great. 9.3 for now, but I see this going to 9.4 with air. — 2 days ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2019

Lyle Fass
9.1

Tremendous color. Looks like Chateau Simone rose. Watermelon, strawberry, spice, a lipstick like intensity, spice, earth, florals and mineral. Deep cherry. Cherry lozenge. Floral. Citrus and Tree bark after some air. A gorgeous nose. Palate is ripe, juicy, full of tannins and structure. Terrific acids, man is this zingy and fresh and even has some citric zest to it. Tannins build up on the finish. Very serious Langhe Nebbiolo. — 3 days ago

9.0

Super floral and very pretty nose. Lilacs and violets. Some berry fruit. Very refined and aromatic. Palate is concentrated, sappy and pure. Deep berry fruit. High acidity but never jarring. Balanced, pure and deep. Confectionary sweetness on the finish. — 16 days ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

Very approachable and easy drinking. Has a Nebbiolo aroma, and distinct tart dried cherry flavor. Medium tannins. The Barbarescos I've had are usually too astringent for me because they haven't aged, but this Langhe is similar in style and great as a younger wine. — 14 days ago

Roccalini Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

A wine I’ve been wanted to try for quite some time. Quite a refreshing Barbaresco. Very Bright red fruit, spring flowers, wet leather, very calm acidic finish. Nice wine. — a month ago

Killer producer. Definitely one to keep an eye out for. He used to sell his fruit off to Giacosa.

Langhe Nascetta 2019

Lyle Fass
9.3

Nascetta is lovely niche grape of the Langhe. I adore it. Nose is lavender, very floral, like a Crabtree and Evelyn store. Some apple, pear and fantastic spice. Super aromatic. Sweet Meyer lemon and sweet citrus as well. Palate is terrific fruit, lemon, lime, grapefruit, intense rocky mineralIty that reminds me of Germany and terrific depth. Great structure and very dry. Great mouthfeel and superbly mineral. Like really really mineral. Some citrus pith. But while being mineral it has a great mouthfeel. Super juicy and racy. Love this. — 13 days ago
