Giàrborina Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

Jeremy Noye
9.4

An marvelous example of 2016 vintage. This non-Barolo-Barolo shows the elegance and grace of the 2016s tannins. Captivating and alluring immediately on the palate the nose opens slightly slower but blooms quick enough into great fruit and rose to violet tar. Very impressive and showed age extremely well. — 13 days ago

Cascina Nuova Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

Overall great. A touch darker but that was the beauty of choosing an 03. Classic despite the hardships — 20 days ago

Ginestra Casa Maté Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Nutty and piney. God this baby could go for years...per tannins, alc and acid. Yet, awesome now!

Vigna Arborina Piedmont Nebbiolo 1990

Also a 90, but the IGT bottling. Less balanced than the 90 Barolo Arborina, but still showing very well, with loads of red berry and sour cherry fruit offset by acidity that is a bit astringent. — 12 days ago

Rüncot Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

So... I am missing Italy. I'm going back to Piedmonte, and soon. So I popped this. I have it in the decanter but I can already tell this is at the top of my scale.

I'll try my best to justify... But this wine is a 9.5 on my scale, it's tough to move beyond that as I am giving a nod to the greatest wines that I have yet to experience.

It's a perfect round cherry in your mouth. I should have more but I'm tired.

Arborina Barolo Nebbiolo 1990

Very young, in appearance and taste. Lacks typicity, but very fine nonetheless. Fruit on this wine is delicious, fresh, with nice tannins and balanced acid. — 12 days ago

I can’t get over your comment lacks typicity that is usually a killer for me.

Agree. An exception to the rule. High quality winemaking.
