Monferrato Nino Pinot Nero 2015

Jörgen Lindström Carlvik

Damn, this is tasty! Fragile and mineral-driven, the new vintage shows ripe red berries framed by stemmy tannins and just a whiff of oak. Complete dryness on the finish makes it serious and strict. I can see it ageing nicely too. A different expression of Pinot Noir, but a very welcome addition! 91+ — 16 days ago

Antonio Vallana e Figlio

Spanna Montalbano Nebbiolo 1955

Very dark and deep. Blue fruit, cola, spice, notes of caramel on the nose. Very intense on the palate... gorgeous purple fruit, hints of raisin, dark plum, dry wood and a meaty gaminess to the core. Like cahors or pommard to the Vosne of the conterno. Fascinating alongside the others and very good. — 6 days ago

@Conrad Green I have been very pleased with his ‘58’s. Have you had any?

Giacomo Conterno

Cerretta Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Quite deep and complex on the nose giving only a fraction away. Quite deep dark fruits , anise . In the mouth, lots of ripe black fruits , velvety but grippy tannins. Always the sign of a great wine is the ability to change in the glass , this has that in spades . Now becoming more floral , violets, rose . More feminine. Hugely long on the finish , with a wonderful balance of acidity , and a saline touch. Drinkable now , enjoyable , however really merits keeping to improve further a few more years. A great wine . — 6 days ago

Wine was bomb, scored a bottle at grocery outlet, paid 5 bucks. Paired it with a nice steak and potato and kale dinner- drank a whole bottle to myself. — 3 days ago

Azienda Agricola Matteo Correggia

Roero Roche d'Ampsej Riserva 2013

Medium crimson/ruby in colour. A whiff of vanilla oak amongst the earthy aromas. Sandy fine tarry tannins. Thanks to the contribution of Matteo Correggia the Roero now has DOCG status which is why this wine is in the 1001 Wines book. Just medium weight but with 100% new French oak, so a modern approach. Good accompaniment to Roast Pork for Sunday lunch. Drinking well now but would drink the next 2 bottles by its 10th birthday in 2023. — 6 days ago
