Vigna Ronco Al Maso Ghemme Nebbiolo 2017

Some of us, being Nebbiolo supplicants, love Ghemme for its paradoxical meaty, bloody, yet light qualities. This has it in spades, on the edge of cherry cough syrup but never quite there. The woods, especially on the nose. This wine would benefit from a large glass.
It’s a bit of a sneaky, under the radar winery, hopefully for a bit still.
Lots of cherries, loam, dirt, blood, stoniness. Delicious. A ‘17 feels just about right.

Mimmo Vino Rosso Nebbiolo Blend 2022

Delectable Wine
9.3

Le Piane’s 2022 Nebbiolo is a rich, heady wine, but it has found a way to maintain freshness and verve. It’s a big wine for sure, yet all the elements are so well balanced. Sweet red/purplish fruit, orange peel, mint and crushed flowers linger on the deep, satisfying finish. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2024) — 3 months ago

Boca Nebbiolo Vespolina 2016

Nose: sweet roses and cherries. Intense and beautiful. So floral

Palate: sweet cherries. A bit right but so lovely and balanced. Juicy. Still young. Has a decade to go at least.

Needs an hour. Then magnificent. The 20% vespolina just takes this over the top.

Almost a 9.6. A perfect boca.

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2010

Great example of what a Spanna from Alto Piemonte can be. Volcanic soil, traditional process and a great family. Red berries orange peel mint plenty of acid and low alcohol lightens the package. The bottle went empty quickly. — 3 months ago

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2017

Amazing and unusual Piedmontese wine. At first was exposing tobacco and paper, then with small sips left in the glass with cranberries, and the fuller glass after breathing with deeper flowers and berry notes — 3 months ago

Ghemme ai Livelli Nebbiolo 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2018 Ghemme Ai Livelli is a dense, potent wine. Black cherry, spice, leather, menthol, game and incense add to an impression of brooding intensity. This rustic, burly Ghemme offers tons of punch and character, but it is marked by slightly elevated alcohol, searing tannins and oxidative overtones. In spite of that, it’s still a very good wine, which just shows the potential here. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2024)
