Collaretto Langhe Chardonnay Riesling Blend 2016

Let’s make more native yeast Riesling! It’s top two, three of the worlds great grapes and I feel like we’ve barely tapped into what it can do. Many of our favorite Riesling makers have been stubborn, sticking with pre-selected strands from the same mother.

Oddero Riesling is very good, but it tastes not unlike Alsace or Mosel or Rhône. Shy aromas with smokey flint and lemon. I don’t have much to add because I couldn’t find much more. Big textures and familiar territory.

Superiore Barbera d'Alba 2015

One of my all-time favorite Barberas. Hits with a bretty, barnyard funk, plus mushrooms and compost. Perfumed red roses lead to secondary aromas of marischino cherries and candied plum. Subtle spice and oak toast too. Rich and silky on the palate, with a cherry core. Oak aging adds roundness which balances the firm acidity. Soft tannins coat the palate which finishes with tart blackcherry and plum. Pair with wood-fired margarita pizza all day.... Note: “Superiore” on Barbera D’Alba means at least 4 months barrel aging. — a month ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Medium Ruby with pronounced aromas of red fruits, floral, oak and earthy notes. On the palate developing flavors of sour cherry, currants, toasty smoky oak and earthy herbs. Vivid acidity, great balance, full body with fine chewy tannins on long finish ending with earthy character. Very good now and will also get better in the cellar. — 17 days ago

Mondoca di Bussia Soprana Barolo Nebbiolo 1998

A few days back I had the pleasure of having the 1998 Oddero Mondoca di Bussia Soprana Barolo.

On the nose there was black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, tar, oak, dried roses and a dried earth component.

On the palate was black cherry, fig, licorice, spice, subtle oak, leather, a bit of herbaceous notes and dried earth.

The wine is medium to full bodied and a velvety mouthfeel with medium + acidity still and medium + smooth tannins that lead to a long dark fruit finish. This was truly a pleasure to have. Christmas is soon upon us, so have a joyous and safe holiday. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Beautiful vintage.


Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

Just a very nice langhe nebbiolo. Even with just a couple years of age, this represents the grape and piedmont quite nicely - perhaps not that surprising given the producer. Really a good value and delicious. — 18 days ago
