Essentia Alba Nebbiolo Blend 2010

80% Nebbiolo, 15% Barbera, 5% Merlot blend, with grapes slightly dried on the vines.

Due to this style, it shows loads of baked lush fruit, all-spice, dried herbs, and purple flowers. Chalky, but developed tannins, medium plus acidity, and a very brick red color... I really enjoyed drinking this wine, but I honestly can't tell if it is on its last legs or if the grapes being dried on the vine make it seem in its plateau. I'd have to try a bottle again in a few years of the same vintage.

Great pairing for burgers.

Del Comune di La Morra Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Color of clear burgundy, with hue of bloody grapefruit. Nose of dried strawberries, some cedar wood, cherry jam, black tea, and tobacco leaves. Taste is juicy, with tannins solid but polished, sweetened black tea, cherry and strawberry, tobacco leaves, anise, spice, and some mineral. Aftertaste of some more mineral, zest, and a touch of white pepper. In her peak. — 6 days ago

Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy

Martinenga Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

Very floral and red-berry scented nose, also displaying some subtle citrus and spice notes with menthol and cherry licquer finish. This has become a perennial favorite in my house, usually for casual food-friendly occasions. — a day ago

Collina Rionda Di Serralunga d'Alba Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1989

What is a perfect wine? What is the best wine one can ever have? I found my personal answer again: the Bruno Giacosa Barolo "Collina Rionda" Riserva 1989. This wine has it all, all I could wish for in the beauty of Nebbiolo. The nose alone was so intriguing; a basket of fruits of all sizes and colors is jumping out of the glass together with mild incense. In the palate the wine shows its perfection. Weightless but yet so intense und powerful with myriad flavors of red and black plums, fruitcake, saturating minerals and iron. The feminine elegance and finesse meet the masculine & darker characterstics that are so typical for Serralunga. You can only find this magic interplay in "Vigna Rionda". The tannins, acidity and fruit are in an incredible harmony and make this 30 years old wine appear so young. The finish is sweet and endless. This wine is a story told from the glass to the palate. The greatest story ever told. — 13 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. — 11 days ago

Rabajà Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1998

You wouldn’t know Barbaresco is one of my favourite wines as I hardly review them weirdly 😁 so seeing this 21 year old baby @ £83 recently I thought I gotta get me a piece of that 😉 It’s a few years past it’s peak now but still a decent drop although not worth its current 💵

Castello di Verduno

Massara Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Happy Valentine’s Day (with a rib-eye). Leather, earthy, more roses than tar, young and fresh for a Barolo, perhaps more like a Barbaresco and more on the medium than full side. Bright tannins, mineral, cranberry, vanilla, potpourri, baker’s chocolate. From Flatiron Wines. — 5 days ago

Costa Russi Langhe Nebbiolo 1999

Vibrant dark fruit with licorice and a dollop of flowers and tar, intense but balanced with plenty of fine tannin for support. Excellent in a totally different style from the 1997 Giacosa Santo Stefano tasted with it and more lively and nuanced than the 2000 Costa Russi. — 6 days ago
