Ca' Rozzeria

Neive Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

The delightful thing about/problem with a good food/wine book is you get inspired to open all sorts of things but...I’m gonna say this wine was a good choice to go with A Really Big Lunch. Not a problem. This wine will keep growing in delight and holy heck I can’t wait to try Ca’ Rozzeria’s Barolo proper I bought but I will be waiting another few years on that if I can help myself. But for twelve bucks I couldn’t help but order a couple of the Langhe Nebbiolo offerings. And this is a 2015 so it’s super ripe.
Okay so the dried cherry just explodes from the glass with earth and minerally deliciousness and on the tongue the tannins assure you this is in fact Nebbiolo. There is a lot of orange rind going on too. The finish goes on with all sorts of dried flower and yet almost a salinity? Crazy. I’m in. But then I’m a nut for Nebbiolo. Okay one more chapter then I swear I will turn the light out. At least it’s not a school night.

Paje' Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2008

Intruiging, fascinating, had my eye on her all night...only an Italian is capable of doing this...such a beautiful wine. And according the critics one of the lesser Riservas of 2008. Still got the Ovello in the cellar and I'm looking forward to it! — 3 days ago

@Chris England yes, certainly if you compare it's pricetag to f.ex. the Sottimano's I had a couple of weeks ago. On top of that, the quality is striking at Prod. del Barb.!

Fontanafredda

Alta Langa La Cuvee

@Delectable by definition, Alta Lange DOCG must be 90% Chardonnay/Pinot Nero - either way, really enjoyed this high elevation, metodo classico sparkler - crisp acidity from the cool climate and elevation, good mouthfeel, and above average bubbles, clearly product of a high quality wine maker. Maybe not a QPR in the states but it was 10.99€ for me 🤗🤗🤗 — 15 days ago

Pora Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2004

90 min decant. Nose is relatively closed right now, tart red berries and asphalt dominate. Beautiful front palate - Strawberry jam, floral notes, plums, wild cherry, and some tar. Super grippy tannins as expected bring in hints of dried branches and warm spice. A touch of umami on the finish is what makes this great. Love to try this in a decade. — 6 days ago

Marchesi di Barolo

Barolo Tradizione Nebbiolo 1947

A dark ruby core with lots of bricking. A stinky nose that’s surprisingly vibrant with tar, tart cherry, wood and a hint of madiera. High toned. On the palate, astonishingly good fruit. Mature but still quite deep and very resolved. Great balance and decent length. This isn’t profound but is an incredible testament to the ageability of Nebbiolo. Complex and fascinating. Lovely — 10 days ago

Conca Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Gorgeous nose of huckleberries, red currants, sweet bbq spice, chalky minerals, dried orange, and exotic florals. The orange and spice notes carry onto the palate with some clove, crushed red currant, and violets. The orange and mineral notes are oddly reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire. Needs lots of bottle age. Not as concentrated as the Conca that Renato Ratti produces, but still very good. — 4 days ago

Bricco Fiasco Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

This one also felt young to the group, and came out a bit awkward. 2 hours later it was singing, I went back to it twice. Sweet tannins at the core powered through to a long, good-tangy finish. Uncertain how long this has to go, so decant and drink up. The awkward phase scared me... — 7 days ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

2006 Monprivato on a snowy night in NYC. Perfect. This wine is special, but it takes a 2hr decant to find out (during which time we enjoyed some Varja Riesling...). This Barolo is the real thing. — a day ago
