Bricco Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Double-blind. This note is from memory but what an impression it made! I called Barolo along with a few others at the table; likely from a vintage like 2012 or 2015 since everything seemed well and open for business. Dark cherry fruit, dried herbs, and roses with monumental structure. This was a touch glossy on the fruit side and I thought that had more to do with the generosity of the vintage rather than the producer. We were all surprised (and also a bit, “yeah, that makes total sense) when it was revealed to be the 2016 Cavallotto Bricco Boschis. Surprised because the 2016 vintage from such a traditionalist was drinking so well out of the gate! Not surprised with the glossy nature of the fruit which I find to be a hallmark of Cavalotto; simply gorgeous texture. An utter delight now and, I suspect, will be stunning with time. Now that I think of it, the 2013’s were very good upon release as well and there are a lot of similarities between the two vintages. — a day ago

Wine full of juicy fruit, packed with loads of joy. Red fruit, sweet cherry, some leather, lots of lavender and violets. Mild tannins, soft acidity, medium long finish. Wine made for easy evening, good for pizza and cold cuts. — 13 hours ago

Surprisingly good and drinkable for its age, yet also not exceptional. The fruit is alive and in balance but short. — 13 days ago

Grign Langhe Grignolino 2015

lovely and fresh. some tart berry, some raw beef, delightfully acidic and delicately tannic. very quiet fruit, very subtle bitter root, and a little glazed donut icing-feel all over the mouth. sweet cherry bookend is very appealing. great everyday food wine, but I imagine this will make a lovely summer red as well. — 2 days ago
