Wow what a nose. Licorice, ripe berries, smoke, leather, gaminess, roses, tar, blueberry, cherry and so so elegant, ethereal and complex. Gorgeous. Palate is even more stunning. Juicy and complex wine wonderful suave tannins and such dazzling purity and freshness. Exquisite balance. Not a hair out of place. Long and fresh and man this is so so so well made. Just brilliant wine. Dazzling ripe tannins and wonderful structure ensure a very long life. Best young Valloni ever. — 2 days ago

Cantine Elvio Tintero

Rosso Piedmont Nebbiolo Blend

Fantastic. Relatively light bodied pilot a Pinot noir but full of flavor and just dry enough. Used this in the coq au vin (and also drank it) when Zach Amanda Seán and Shayne cane over for dinner. — 17 hours ago

E. Pira & Figli (Chiara Boschis)

Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

Best young Barolo I’ve had in a long time while ticking all the requisite boxes: tar, check; roses, check; supple red fruit, you bet. Want to see how this ages, but for now a true PnP. — 4 days ago

Nice core of dusty dried cherry. Good value here as it sits around $20 on the shelf. — 4 days ago

Topper's Mountain Vineyard

Nebbiolo 2011

Pale to mid Ruby. Aromas of rose petals, menthol and liquorice. Low on fruit influences at this age - very savoury. An excellent rendition of a new world Nebbiolo - from Tingha on the New England tableland in northern NSW - most of the neighbours would be sheep and cattle graziers. This winery makes brilliant Gewurztraminer - one of the best in the country IMO. A very boutique winery with a small production. Sadly Toppers suffered from a devastating bushfire earlier this year which will take some recovery time. — 9 days ago

Giuseppe Rinaldi

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1958

This may not be the mostly purely delicious wine I’ve ever had (though it is up there) but it’s undoubtedly the most impressive. Vibrant purple in the glass, shockingly primary for 60 year old wine. Stunning fruit and structure. Clearly this is immortal — 7 days ago

San Lorenzo di Verduno Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

This was super pretty on day 4. Opened a day early and it was a little tight and tart on the finish. By day four it was smooth and balanced. SS — a day ago

Azienda Agricola Brovia

Villero Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Fascinating how different this is from the Rocche 13' (from the same producer). Goes to show that Piedmont is indeed a great distraction from Burgundy, which has been reflected in the increasing prices. Thankfully, Brovia's wines are still "under the radar." Affordable, in the scale of things.

Neighbouring vineyards. The Rocche - blue-fruit focused, leaner, less tannic on the palate (but you could smell it), elegant if not firmer. The Villero - red-fruited, more classic on the nose, brawny palate, with big spice tones and a blood-like minerality. No preference of one over the other at the moment. Rocche, the queen of Brovia's line-up, and Villero, the king! Their purity, nuance, and turbo-charged aromatics are seriously impressive, though it doesn't make it any easier to drink them at this early stage. Definitely cellar these crus. Minimum 20 years!

Bruno Giacosa

Reserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1990

Tasted blind. Dark tawny with some amber in the rims. Notes of black cherry, blueberries, violets, some menthol. Great texture in the mouth. Started out as masculine but became more subtle and feminine with air. Long finish. Guessed 78 Giacosa. — 6 days ago

Ovello Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Way too young, very closed, only revealed a bit after a couple of hours. Difficult to rate but looks like a promising beauty! — a day ago
