9.1

@Delectable Wine this is the Dolcetto d Alba Superiore “Buschet.” Thanks.

Big grapey nose with some lovely spice and huge berry fruit. Palate is super juicy and pure with lovely freshness and good cutting tannins. Some nice stoney minerals on the nose as well. Nice concentration and purity. Pretty good. Maybe air will make it better. Is getting better. More complete. More juicy, textured and concentrated. Lovely stuff. My score may go higher.

9.5

Really pretty nose that is super floral. Complex cherries. Confectionary aromas. Minty. Menthol. Really pretty and very nuanced. Bright and high toned. Wow, what a terrific palate. Tannic but sweet and super juicy. Really complex and deep. Lovely balance and freshness. This is really really close to the 16. What a talent. Finish is a mile long. Very very impressed. This tastes and smells like it’s from a cooler vintage than 17. Wonderful texture, structure, depth and sweet tannins and fruit. Endless finish. This is on the verge of a 9.5.

9.4 to 9.5 now with air. What a talent this guy is. So elegant and complex. Just stunning. This is better than his 16.

Nose is so floral and enveloping. A stunner.

Better 17’s than 16’s here and it’s really remarkable. Gorgeous nose of super aromatic tar, florals, roses, deep cherry fruit, candied cherries and so precise. Palate is so pure, balanced and has wonderful sweet tannins and that are silky yet substantial. Buffered by terrific minerality. Concentrated and intense and like all 17’s this needs mega air as 17’s come tight out of the bottle with significant tannin. After 15 minutes the tannin fruit conversion is awesome! 9.4 to 9.5. — a month ago

Big, ebullient nose of berries and spice. There is also some new wood here. Juicy and ripe but the new wood is a it too there. It’s fresh, a hint of lactic and juicy, but the vanilla is a bit much. All the quality is there. Maybe it will integrate with air? — 3 months ago
