Nebbiolo

Roccia Rossa

Bramaterra DOC Nebbiolo 2013

80% Nebbiolo, 15% Vespolina & 5% Croatina

Color not of a wine of only 5 years...deep yet translucent ruby, brown edges, stunning.

Nose, I'm in love! If there was such a thing as a cherry with rose petal that was actually a rock and you could eat it without losing all your teeth or you're a Rock Biter, this is that wine!

Palate...cherry, cherry and did I mention cherry? Oh Nebbiolo how I love thee. Baking spice, anise, oh the palate is continually changing, I'm confused and over joyed, god damn life is complicated, or is it easy?

Paired this bottle with 4+ hour, slow/low grilled spare ribs and Brahms 7th Symphony, amazballs as my buddy would say!

Giacomo Conterno

Cascina Francia Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1997

Musty nose on pop but after a decant and swirl the violets kick in and the bouquet delivers a whiff of truffle as well. Classic Barolo tar on entry, massive red fruit, rose petal and fig. A bit grainy and less vibrant than I’m used to from Giacomo Conterno. Good, not great length. A serious Barolo. More substantial than flashy. My preference runs to the Aldo Conterno wines but these are perhaps more “traditional” and worthy of contemplation. — 11 days ago

Poderi Aldo Conterno

Riserva Gran Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Another stunning. This has some dark chocolate, menthol, and Eben floral notes that makes this super interesting. Dark fruited but not heavy — tannins are integrated perfectly — 5 days ago

Dang. Bright red fruit. Full mouth feel with soft tannins. Drinks younger than ‘06.

A fab Barbaresco @ £104 that’s drinking lovely already but will be fab in a few more years to ease tannins 😉

Yarra Valley Nebbiolo 2016

Superb
For a moment you are in Piedmont then u open ur eyes 👀 and you enjoy the explosion of the floral scents that make a link between that two wine region Yarra and Langhe
Somehow it makes perfect sense
Great balance and dangerously easy to drink 😎

Parej Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

At eight years old this Barolo is entering its drinking window. Wonderful purity, red fruit, roses and tar. On the lighter side but good intensity and sustains well. Tertiary notes starting to develop. — 7 days ago

Cascina San Lazzaro

Dadelio Langhe DOC 2010

A blend of various Italian varietals make up this wine. Brooding and really to drink it up. Enjoyable. Would be a good ringer at a wine dinner as it is hard to place but undeniably delicious. — 7 days ago

Roccia Rossa

Galliano Nebbiolo 2014

60% Nebbiolo, 25% Barbera & 15% Croatina

Color is crazy, not of a wine only 4 years of age, translucent red, but with ruby-brown edges, indicative of a wine at likely 10-12 years of age.

Nose is lightly acidic cherry and minerals, lovely for budget Alto Piemonte.

Palate is ripe cherry and lightest hint of oak so barely noticeable. Still concentrating flavors after a recent decant, improvement expected.

Great wines. Love them.

Antonio Vallana e Figlio

Gattinara Nebbiolo 2007

This weekend I have opened the 2007 Antonio Vallana e Figlio Gattinara Nebbiolo.

On the nose it is light with notes of cherry, raspberry, leather, anise, rose petals and an earthy component.

On the palate is tart cherry, sour cranberry, raspberry, herbaceous qualities, with an earthy note.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and high grippy tannins that leads to a long tannic finish. Enjoy your weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
