Rabajà Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1985

A bit past it’s prime but still very nice. Double decanted. It evolved quite a bit over time. Earth and balsamic at first, then heavy tar, rich dark fruit followed. — 6 months 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! — a year ago

Dolcetto d'Alba 2012

Tart cherries, intense dry woodiness, a bit of a gamey olive-like flavor. Not bad! — 5 years ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2015

Still needs help in opening up, beit decant or time in bottle, but the rewards are there. Dark black fruits, a bit of creosote, somewhat austere overall. — 4 months ago
