Vigna Bricco Cerretta Barolo Riserva Nebbiolo 2012

Stuck in NYC with 6 hour plane delay and decided to try a modern Barolo - no regrets at all. Most of my Barolos are old school and will be suitable for my children to drink when they are my age, plus 6 hours isn’t enough for the decant. Here I popped and poured and this was singing today. Medium body, floral, balsamic, cherry, some wood, and firm black tea tannins. Definitely not overdone, very balanced. — 6 days 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
