Villero Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

J. Kim

A wine of complete harmony and restraint. Balance is backward with tremendous amount of reserve. A striking feature of this wine is plush, weighty and soft attack which is immediately enveloped by grippy tannins. There is neither artificiality nor rusticity, just a great material made by almost perfect vintage and enlightened traditional winemaking. — 19 hours ago

Rocche dei Rivera di Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

oddero's 1996 "rocche dei rivera di castiglione" falletto (today: mga "scarrone") did a fantastic job. an ultra classic and perfectly mature barolo. it does not reach the same heights as the 1996 "vigna rionda", "bussia-mondoca" or "rocche di castiglione" and it needed some time in decanter to open up. lots of dried flowers and berries, cedar, tobacco leaf, graphite and road tar. the tannic backbone is very good and brings structure. the saturating minerals and acdity keep the wine very alive in the palate and in a nice finish.

Barolo Nebbiolo 1964

Second bottle of 64' Oddero opened within the week. Unlike the first one, this was stellar. Stood up for over a month, then decanted off its sediments for 4 hours. The bouquet hits you with brandy-macerated cherries, dried florals, tobacco, spices and a menthol-ly character. The bright translucent burg-like colour is perhaps deceptive in view of its concentration. On the palate, the wine is intense, full-bodied, and pure, with very inviting acids and seamless texture. Finishes long and focused. So harmonius right now that it was gone in no time at all. Certainly fits the coveted bill of 'power without weight'. — a month ago

@Peter van den Besselaar Thanks. Yes, it's a gamble sometimes in terms of condition but when it's good... So worth it!

Weirdly, this bottle was way more oaky than the one we had last month. Good thing we have a third bottle in waiting. — 2 months ago

That surprises me with a Nizza in a great vintage. Shouldn’t need to rely on oak for...anything.

Prunes, a touch of dried apricot, dark cherry, gamey funk on the long finish. Daddy’s at the party now... @Derek Haas @Kris Avocado — 3 months ago

Vigna Rionda Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

This is the red I have open for today’s #drinksatantonios It is an appealing ruby red, fading to red-orange at the rim. There’s crunchy red berry fruit on the nose, underpinned by darker berry and stone fruits. It has complex balsam and pine resin, a style I really like. On the palate it’s medium weight, with grip and freshness; the tannins are somewhat mouth puckering so it’s probably best with food. Lovely wine, that’s been evolving seductively in the glass even in the time I’ve been typing this. — 3 months ago
