Very good. Very very good. Doesn’t taste like a Nebbiolo. At all. — 7 days ago

Colombera & Garella

Cascina Cottionano Coste della Sesia Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2018

Another northern Piedmont Nebbiolo. Blended with Vespolina and Croatina. Lots of tar, wet leather, mineral and ferrous, granite and rust from the volcanic soil, crushed rose petals, anise seed, ripe berry, blood-orange zest, good acids come through the earthy tannins. From Flatiron Wines. — 7 days ago

Less aroma than Nebbiolo but surprisingly high tannins and very healthy dense color. — a month ago

Gattinara Nebbiolo 2006

Had my last bottle of this a couple weeks ago and I was very pleasantly surprised. Decanted first a bit over 1 hour, it smelled and tasted noticeably younger than a 2009 from another producer. It had nice dried fruit, plenty of acidity and balance. It also didn’t have much of any orange/brown coloring in the glass. I say I was surprised because other bottles of the 2006 I’ve opened over the last few years have unfortunately showed a bit more age. Maybe it’s finally in the zone? — 21 days ago

Petterino

Gattinara Nebbiolo 2005

Probably the tail end of its good drinking window. Excellent aromatics and actually quite a deeper red color in the glass than expected. A bit muted in fruit on the palate but delicate raspberry comes through with lots of earth. Good acid on the finish. For the age and the price, I’ll take it. — 23 days ago
