Il Chiosso

Ghemme Nebbiolo 2010

Yum! Classic lighter (think Barbaresco) nebbiolo. Floral, herbal, earthy, with rich cherry flavor. Fantastic value, I’d easily believe it could be a $50 Barbaresco. — 20 days ago

Vigna Cristiana Boca Nebbiolo Blend 1999

I opened this before I went to work and just put it on a shelf. Came home and drank it with dinner. Super precise aromas, very as if crystallized. Dried cherries, leather, tar, roses, dried roses, menthol, some licorice...really resolved tannins. Acid is still good. Intense perfume. Very good with a mushroom risotto and some bloomy rind cheese. Wish I had some more. Thanks @Lyle Fass — 21 days ago

@Severn Goodwin it’ll be good. It’s lost all of its baby fat. It’s Wiley like that guy who invented Pilates.

@Ron R Ron I encourage you to add skiing the Powder Highway to your bucket list. If you do you will ski some of the best and most aggressive slopes in the world. Cheers 🎿

Colline Novaresi Croatina 2014

Loads of unusual character here. Nose has pungent violets and cracked stone, and even an oceanic iodine element. Intensely zingy and minerally, light-bodied (12%) but rapier-like focus. A great value choice to cut through rich, rustic food. — a month ago
