Bergadano Barolo

Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

The wine I have opened was the 2016 Pier Carlo Bergadano Langhe Nebbiolo.

On the nose there is quite distinctive notes of cherry, strawberry, licorice, gaminess, mushroom, herbs, leather and earth.

On the palate is cherry, plum, raspberry, anise, game, clay pot, leather, oak and earth.

This wine is full bodied grippy mouthfeel, medium + acidity with medium + to high fine grainy tannins leading to a long red fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone is healthy and well? Please stay safe and the weekend is just around the corner. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

Sometimes you pop Barolo the moment it hits the shelves, and there’s a brief window where it’s open for business. Fruit fleshed out with lilac, cinnamon and touch clove. It closes with more air, but you still get it all in the long finish. — 2 days ago

A solid entry level barolo to drink in the short term. Decanted for 45 minutes. A lighter traditional style barolo with slightly less tannins. Good value at $19. — 4 days ago

Novantuno 91 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba Nebbiolo 2014

14 is the year at Rattalino. Better than 15. Glorious spice on the nose. Compelling and complex. Like it is being ground up fresh under your nose constantly. Gorgeous cherry skins. Palate is ripe and commanding with terrific structure and velvety tannins. Such power and purity. Just a classy classy Barolo with structure to burn. Long finish. Awesome. Tremendous sweet fruit and concentration. Nose opens with more chestnut and intense mineral and cherry flesh. Amazing texture here. Love this. Better than my last bottle. — 7 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

This was a delicious fastball right down the middle of the plate, as far as Barolo goes…and when considering that we’re working with the 2014 vintage, this was especially noteworthy. Dark cherry, alpine herbs, tar, minerals, and black licorice were predominate. A long, lip smacking finish. Again, worked really well with the bison tartar and duck frites. — 8 days ago

Showtime from the very first pour. Absolutely sensational aromatics with red cherry fruit, orange citrus, sandalwood, and roses. So much depth! On the palate, there is red fruits and porcini with a long and lovely, every so slightly saline finish. Gorgeous and now I want more…but this bottle was courtesy of a friend and I live in Nebraska where we don’t always get to have nice things. A fabulous pairing with duck frites and bison tartar. — 11 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

Nose full of tar and ripe plum, veering to prune. Took an hour in the decanter to sort itself but then wonderfully balanced and layered. Black tea, darker plum, perfectly drying tannins to match the perfect, fatty short rib. I would drink up lest the drying tannins persist more as the fruit wanes. — 3 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Last tried ‘09 was in 2014, wow, still young and vibrant for an 11+ year old wine. 100% Nebbiolo, rich deep ruby red color with aromas of black fruit, herb, cedar and spice notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and ripe plum, with notes of leather, spice, cracked pepper and fennel, with slight floral. Fine chewy tannins, still packs a pop, long finish ending with fruit, oak and spice. It was great now but this Barolo still has a decade+ to age. Just delightful. — 4 days ago

High tannin high alcohol full body loving the dark fruits, blueberry, tobacco, dried herbs and earthy undertones. After clearing gutters full of wet earth, this is the reward. — 3 days ago

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 — 11 days ago
