Albe Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Saw this in the Delectable thread the other day and realized I haven’t tried the -15s with food and a long decanting. In a nutshell, high quality, too young, as expected. Light ruby slight brick color; youth- and powerful nose of not tar&roses but sharper, like diesel exhaust & Tom Ford’s Rose Prick - an excellent mix; very high acids and tannins on the palate, dominated by unripe strawberries; finish is of medium length and quite chest-burning despite the indicated 13.5% alc. content. As 2015 was very hot in the summer, one might expect overripe grapes and lower acidity, but not in this beauty. A half-a-decade or more in the cellar should do wonders. — 15 days ago

Rosabella Rosato Langhe Rosé Blend 2019

Think I just found my new go to rose. Rose petals, rhubarb, Grapefruit, and a beautiful wave of minerality that lingers for a solid minute. First rose I’ve tried from Piedmont, definitely not my last. — a month ago

Claré J.C. Langhe Nebbiolo 2018

Ruby with notes of red fruits and floral scents. On the palate elegant red fruits with notes of blueberry and earthy dried lavender. Good balance, soft fine tannins, medium finish ending with fruit and earthy character. Nice value. Consistent quality. — 20 days ago

Luigi Baudana Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

Really interesting wine. Sweet plum surrounded by earthiness and a dry finish that sucks the moisture out of your mouth. Let breathe for one hour. — a month ago

Langhe Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2010

Yes, I aged this almost 10 years from harvest… What a pleasant reward for a little patience! As always, this is a tremendous value at $16...mostly Nebbiolo, this was in full tertiary development - soooo floral with a raspberry compote verve and sweetness. Medium long finish was perfect for our dinner pairing! — 9 days ago
