Loreto Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

De Forville Barbaresco is basically a comfort wine for me and the “Loreto” just amps up the experience. Versatile for nearly any occasion but always shows best with a meal. — 4 months ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

Loved this experience. A feminine expression of the grape. Definitely young but very good plus. Great mix of bright dark red cherries and the chewy tannic finish that goes on forever. Really needs 60 min decant minimum. When I tasted upon open I was not optimistic. But this grew into an elegant mix of violet flowery goodness, cherry, firm and tasty tannin and med plus acidity. Add a signature red brick color and fragrant nose and you have a winner. A bit light on body or it’d be even higher. — a month ago

Riserva Montestefano Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2009

Originally, I only planned to pour the De Forville, the Roccalini and the Paitin but it just didn't seem right to host a Barbaresco class and not have a Produttori in the mix. So, I pulled this from the cellar as a bonus. Boy, am I glad I did. On the pop and pour, this had a striking burnt rubber smell; like from a pencil eraser. This blew off after a few minutes however and became sensational with the most perfect expression of Montmorency cherries, tar, and crushed rock. The 2009 Produttori "Montestefano" is so balanced and yet incredibly powerful. It also remains powerfully tannic. The finish is remarkably long; lasting well over two minutes. This is still very primary and would benefit for continued cellar time. Wow...I love this wine. This will drink well for decades to come. Bottle No. 12202. Bravo! — 7 months ago
