Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 1990

Amber tawny color. Looks old in the glass but not overly so. Gave this 6 hours in a decanter before taking it to our restaurant. Has a great old Barolo nose. Notes of Asian tea, soy sauce, roses, black cherries, some leather saddle and a little tar. Silky in the mouth, with a perfume that gains intensity. Still has ample fruit with a nice soft structure that delivers a memorable finish. Great performance tonight, and bottles like this easily have another 5-8 years of peak delivery. — 4 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Delicious Barolo. Still a little young but the slightly richer fruit profile makes it approachable today. Sour cherries, leather, red flowers - great. — 11 days ago

Still youthful with dried Cherry, red raspberry, rose petals, oregano, tar and sandalwood. The wine has impeccable balance and a generous finish. — 23 days ago

Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo

A brilliant effort! This 1990 Monfortino with a six hour decant is a profound and intellectual wine. Superbly balanced with black and red fruits and a slight olive taste with a nose of fog and a consumer sera le length makes you want to reflect after every sip. It went superbly with the pasta with filet grounded to provide a sauce (yep that’s unique!) . Superb! — 10 days ago

Vignota Barbera d'Alba 2019

A burger tames the youthful qualities of this quite nicely. Better in 3-5 years. — 8 days ago

Vigna Rionda Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo

Very fresh and elegant, typical Nebbiolo nose and palate, more like a Barbaresco rather than a Barolo — 2 years ago

Vigna Francia Barbera d'Alba 2016

Rich, concentrated core of fruit, and the elevage imprint is still excessive for me. — 16 days ago

Cascina Francia Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Opened nicely but still a bit tight. I’m going to avoid opening my remaining bottles a bit. I always enjoy this smooth delicious wine though... — a month ago

Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Already drinking well, this gave forest floor in the nose, mushrooms, slightly drying tannins and spices on the palate paired with balanced acidity.

Combined with the mothers day dinner I cooked for my wife and son ❤️🍷
