Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2013

My favorite Valtellina producer. Consistently exemplary wine. Medium intensity nose of great purity: dark cherry, alpine rocks, brambly underbrush. Lean but with intense dark cherry fruit in the front half of the palate, transitioning to intensely refreshing cracked rock minerality. Very nice acidity and lots of fine-grained chalky tannin. Will only get better over the next 5 years. — 5 days ago

Flama Roja Como Vino Al Mundo Tecate Nebbiolo 2016

This is a blend of cab franc (other sources say Tempranillo), cab sauv, and Nebbiolo from Baja in Mexico. Smoky and sulfurous, leathery, with jalapeño notes that grow and then dissipate with air. After awhile there are red and purple flowers crushed underfoot. Resembles the Espadin that I was drinking last night. There are black fruits – brambles, plums, figs – tea, and nettles on the tongue. Reminds me slightly of some maule valley país I’ve had. I love cab franc and love the vegetable notes that it gets, so I’m happy here. There’s a very spiced finish: nutmeg and black pepper. Quite perfumed. Tongue coating tannins. Fruit is medium ripe and theres good acidity. If only all warm region reds were this lively. Not so much balanced as full of tension. — 14 days ago

Sotto Castello di Novello Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Without a question, the darkest Barolo I've ever had. Deep dark red, with a rim that's beginning to turn. Cherry tobacco, chocolate. Very firm tannins, 15% ABV, 2010.... I bet this could lay down to sleep for a long long time.

Luna Matta Nebbiolo 2009

Palmer Emmitt

Though it tastes a bit older than ‘09, it absolutely tastes like Italy - quite possibly the best new world Nebbiolo I’ve had. Color is a pale brick with garnet tinges on the rim, and the nose really jumps from the glass in a way that is both energetic and eroding. Palate features fully mature integrated tannins and firm acid with intense dried cherry fruit, dirty rose water, and some emerging earthy tertiary character. It continues to grow on me with more time in the glass - I think this bottle and I found each other on the perfect day. — 9 days ago

Bric dël Fiasc Barolo Nebbiolo 2000

Reddish tawny. Soft and delicate nose. Notes of black cherry, anise, cranberry, red rose petals and some plank floor. Smooth in the mouth. Fruit and tannins melt together. Not overly Barolo like but very tasty nonetheless. Still primary. — 7 days ago

Plenty of fruit left: prune, raisin, fig, dried orange peel, dried cranberry, rosemary and bay leaves, crushed stone, blood, allspice, roasted leaves. Tar, leather, balsamic vinegar, sour cherry and mint on the palate. 13.5% abv. Elevated acidity, elevated pulverized sweet tannins, and medium+ finish. — 10 days ago

Santo Stefano Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2001

Beautiful. Mature, but at that stage where the fruit retains freshness even as it morphs into wonderful mature Nebbiolo. An 01 in a very good place now. — 4 days ago

Meant to add. No sediment at all. Must have been filtered.

Ochetti Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

Oooh Nebbiolo is a sexy wine for a chilly rainy noir winter’s night. Smells like a library someone burnt incense in a couple of nights ago. It’s aggressive in the mouth. Those tannins are fighting but underneath them are the flower petals and between bramble and bite and delicate manners it’s a fun wine for an excellent price. — 4 days ago

Prapò Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Robbing the cradle, but so delicious 🤤 captures the best of Serralunga but with a sense of generosity. Classy, structured, power and elegance in harmony even at this stage in its life. More time would certainly bring more complexity, but with leg of lamb roast this was killer. Rose petal, exotic spices, dried flowers, eucalyptus, black cherries, clove, camphor and limestone. — 10 days ago

Serralunga D'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Miles to go. Needed five days of rough handling to show very primary elements of tea rose, umeboshi, hard crack caramel and intense mineral savor. The one interesting thing is that the tannins are soft and dusty from the get. Don’t bother checking back for 5-7 years on this one. — 10 days ago
