Picked this up from a nearby package store on Cape Cod for less than $20. I love drinking entry level wines from top producers. The fruit might not be their best but there is every ounce the same effort that goes into these wines as the better wines. If it has their name on the bottle, the wine had better be good for that category.
This Rosso is fruity and a little wild. Red fruits and some floral notes come through. Reasonable finish. It was rather lovely slightly chilled. — 15 hours ago
I thought this was the weakest of the Nebb during the night. Having said that, it was pure and balanced. Just lacking the stuffing of the others around it. Would drink it anyday!
NB: This is a declassified Barbaresco Straderi because Olek was in trouble with cash flow while finishing the construction of the new cellar; he decided to release this gem one year earlier! Long maceration in cement, aged in a large slavonian botte. — 8 days ago
Dense toasted cherries with a really nice soft tannic finish. Better than a lot of Barbarescos that cost 3x as much. — 4 days ago
Special one time declassified Barbaresco. Stunning wine. Sick nose. Floral, swooning, tar, roses, spice, perfumed. So good. Chestnut. Wood shavings. Stunning purity. So juicy. My god this is unreal with so much accessible Nebbiolo fruit but is obviously declassified as there is a nobility to the fruit and the tannins. Awesome wine. What a value. — 16 days ago
So far, the best Langhe Nebbiolo. No aging needed... At 4 years young, it's amazing how approachable this wine is. This deep red with a sly red-pink-tanning rim. A little rose on the nose. A hint of anise. The acidity is largely subsiding, tannins are firm and embracing. It's running down the glass gracefully. Add a slight vegetal aroma--rosemary?
