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. — 5 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

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! — 11 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

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1961

Bought over 15 yrs ago from the winery... a little funk on opening and then the wine just got better and better like a freight train... a great 60 yr old bottle that belied it’s age and probably will go strong for another 20 yrs — a month ago

Vigna Francia Barbera d'Alba 2016

Rich, concentrated core of fruit, and the elevage imprint is still excessive for me. — 18 days ago
