Valgella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2010

Amazing old tasting Nebbiolo. Old school - it’s still cold here even with global warming. Cherries on the nose. Palate is that old school nebbiolo. Tar and roses. But great acidity. So fresh. Wow. What an effort. Purchased from fass selections. — 5 days ago

I had this for the first time in Piedmont at a little cafe in a hilltop village. I had it again more recently, and it is still wonderful, even without the marvelous setting. Fine bubbles and freshness, but flavorful. One of my favorite sparkling wines. — 14 days ago

This is definitely one of my favorites. Sweet, but not too sweet, lightly acidic and gently sparkling. I love this one! — 2 months ago

Conti Sertoli Salis

Il Saloncello Nebbiolo 2011

If I were thinking France, I’d say this was a Savigny-Les-Beaune. Lively cherry fruit under an intensely pure stony minerality, and an almost mountain stream freshness. Tart, intense cherry fruit at first, but then turns minerally/savory, and the acidity is excellent. No great depth or complexity, but nice purity and freshness. — 19 days ago

Mamete Prevostini

Botonero Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio Nebbiolo

Alpine -lighter style Nebbiolo- but not light on character. Nose dominated by cherries. On the palate, cheriesand a little earth and stone, with some gritty tannins. Hoping to have some left for tomorrow night to see how it evolves. — 10 days ago
