Marenca Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Nice, ripe, modern delicious Barolo. Dang. This one has me leaning from the traditional. This wine is ready from cork pop, but was much better after 2 hrs of bottle decanting and probably has another 7 years left. Nose of herbs, soil, mushroom, cola, funeral flowers. Entry of flowers, raspberry cola, nice acidity and just a hair departed from full bodied. Complex. Beautiful wine. Finishes with some astringency and youthful oak tannin so this one has a while left. Tobacco, herb, soil. Dang. If you have these, now is the time. — 13 days ago

Riserva Speciale Barolo Nebbiolo 1970

Thank you Dr. Frank! What a treat at lunch. Soft old Barolo nose. Dirt barnyard. Wow! You Gotta be kidding me on this 50-year-old! Talk about a gem. The fruit is still there. Sweet sour cherry absolutely dynamic continually changing quickly.  — 2 days ago

San Luigi Dogliani Dolcetto 2017

Such an underrated gem from Piemonte. Rich black fruit, a savory edge, a mineral undercurrent — 12 hours ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Have had this in the cellar for five years, wanted to wait til it was a decade old.
Olives, tar, fennel, plum skin, cherries and earth. Plenty of life ahead but so good now.
Needs air and needs food. Paired with NY strip, asparagus with preserved lemon, and garlic mashed potatoes. Boozy and grippy.

Poderi Luigi Einaudi

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Fantastic wine, felt like we popped too early even after a 1 hr decant
Tar, leather, spice, flowers, and ripe cherries all the way. Bright acid and tight but integrated tannin.
