Spanna Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo 2016

This surpasses the 2015 in my estimation. Concentrated, powerful, complex and simply delicious. Outstanding vintage with plenty of stuffing for the cellar. — 10 days ago

Boca Nebbiolo 2016

Fantastic. Nose is elemental at this point with cherries, violets, perfume, and minerals, but still closed. Palate is packed with young Nebbiolo greatness. Red-fruited concentration, acidity, prickly tannins. No doubt this is a 30 year wine. 9.2++ — 23 days ago

Toetto Langhe Freisa 2017

Floral, strawberry, cherry, leather, searing acid, screaming tannins. I see where Nebbiolo gets it from. A beautiful wine, but definitely needs time. — 25 days ago

Spanna Campi Raudii Nebbiolo 2010

Kind of menthol aftertaste I assume is from the vespolina. Sweet fruit and lush texture but not about that pall mall cigarette finish. Library release 2010. — 8 days ago

Cuvée Bernardo Vallana Spanna Nebbiolo 2015

Plummy, earthy nose doesn’t show much. But the palate is expansive and rich, with classic earthy Novarese Nebbiolo flavors. Great with polenta and meat sauce. — a month ago
