Colline Novaresi Croatina 2014

Loads of unusual character here. Nose has pungent violets and cracked stone, and even an oceanic iodine element. Intensely zingy and minerally, light-bodied (12%) but rapier-like focus. A great value choice to cut through rich, rustic food. — 2 months ago

Balls to the wall Nebbiolo. Love Ghemme. Funky nose of cherry, hint of barnyard, nuts, spice, mint and sour cherry. It’s great but wild. I suspect with air it will become more tame. Palate is gorgeous. Deep and ripe. Terrific fruit that cuts a swath across the palate. Rustic and energetic with again, sick deep cherry fruit that echoes on the long finish with gorgeously ripe tannins. Big wine and even bigger fruit, tannins and terrific freshness. If you’re not drinking ripe vintages in Alto Piemonte you’re doing it wrong. — 25 days ago

Il Chiosso

Ghemme Nebbiolo 2010

Yum! Classic lighter (think Barbaresco) nebbiolo. Floral, herbal, earthy, with rich cherry flavor. Fantastic value, I’d easily believe it could be a $50 Barbaresco. — 24 days ago

Vigna Cristiana Boca Nebbiolo Blend 1999

I opened this before I went to work and just put it on a shelf. Came home and drank it with dinner. Super precise aromas, very as if crystallized. Dried cherries, leather, tar, roses, dried roses, menthol, some licorice...really resolved tannins. Acid is still good. Intense perfume. Very good with a mushroom risotto and some bloomy rind cheese. Wish I had some more. Thanks @Lyle Fass — 25 days ago

@Severn Goodwin it’ll be good. It’s lost all of its baby fat. It’s Wiley like that guy who invented Pilates.
