Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Super tight. Cellar tracker reviews lied to me. Was delicious classic Barolo (maybe more fruit than earth oriented) after open for 1-2 hrs, but so much more awaits. Don’t open. — a month ago

Roccalini Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

My first experience with Cascina Roccalini was last year with the 2013 vintage and I was hugely impressed so I was very excited to try the 2014 version. Popped and poured; initially bright ruby in the glass but became noticeably darker, turning to garnet after about fifteen minutes. The nose on the 2014 Roccalini was opulent; far and away the freshest and most interesting of the group in the first couple of hours with beautiful, ripe cherries, bruised red delicious apples, tar, baking spices and roses. So much pleasure! After about hour three, the roses gave way for Easter Lilies...which I can't ever recall in a red wine before. However, around hour five, the Roccalini started to fall apart and the finish became watery and thin which is exactly what happened to the 2014 "Sori Paitin"; further reinforcing my feeling that the 2014's will be a vintage to enjoy while they are younger and preferably within the first couple hours of being open. Drink now or before 2022. — a month ago

Cascina Nuova Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Beautiful and elegant modern style Barolo. Very polished and suave. Loads of dark fruit and black tea. On the riper more full bodied side but with plenty of structure and acidity to keep things interesting. Seemed to be in its prime, not sure how much it would improve with more time. — a month ago
